Long Term Disability

Long Term Disability is an employee-paid benefit program that provides you with income to supplement the income you are unable to make as a result of an illness or injury.  This kind of disability comes into play when you are unable to perform your normal job, or any job for that matter, for a period of 6 months or longer.
