Overview

The loss of income due to illness or injury can cause serious financial hardship for your family. Disability insurance replaces a portion of your income to help you continue paying your bills and meeting your financial obligations during this difficult time.

  • Benefit begins after seven consecutive calendar days of disability.

  • Benefits end after 26 weeks.

Important note for Transamerica Agency Network employees: STD coverage only applies to Agency Coordinators, Managing Directors and Associate Directors.
