8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. Global Disability Trends
A 35-year-old has a 50% chance of becoming disabled for more than a 90-day period before age 65 – and yet disability protection is much less prevalent than say life or health insurance. Disability providers in the US and internationally offer an array of fully insured and self-funded solutions with a variety of absence management and claims support services designed to streamline the process and get employees back to work as soon as reasonably possible. The disability provider’s data also reflects the effects of an aging workforce, medical advances, and the power of early intervention.
This session will provide an overview of market ‘best practices’ in the US and key countries in Europe and LatAm where privately insured disability solutions are prevalent and evolving – and increasingly in demand by Employers and Employees alike.
