Why Offer Disability Coverage?

Disability coverage protects your employees and your organization when an employee is too sick or injured to work. This coverage assures that employees have income while they’re disabled and – in some cases – provides funds to your organization to hire a temporary replacement.

The Church Pension Fund makes available two types of disability coverage: Short-Term Disability Benefit and Long-Term Disability Insurance


Protect Your Employees and Organization

You may offer and promote both Short-Term Disability Benefit and Long-Term Disability Insurance to all of your employees. Enroll your organization in this benefit during two enrollment periods each year.

Enroll employees within 31 days of their date of hire to guarantee acceptance and avoid paying back premiums. 



Short-term disability and long-term disability insurance policies are underwritten and issued by Lincoln Financial Group.
