Temporary Total Disability

What is Temporary Total Disability?

Temporary total disability allows insured individuals a certain amount of compensation for their wage when they cannot work due to health concerns, such as recovery from an accident. This policy is only available for people temporarily out of work due to medical conditions but expects a full recovery. The amount of income the policy covers can vary. These policies provide benefits to a certain maximum amount paid or until a certain amount of time lapses.
