Group Total & Permanent Disability Insurance – What is it?
Group TPD insurance is a benefit that covers total and permanent disability for your employees.
If a staff member suffers a serious injury or illness and is permanently incapacitated and unable to ever return to work again, the benefit will pay a lump sum payment to them to set their affairs in order.
This benefit is taken as an addition to a group life insurance policy and cannot be taken on its own.
