Immediate coverage for when you need it
Short-term disability income insurance allows you to have immediate coverage that can fill the protection gap until your employer-based benefits kick in. Coverage is portable, meaning you own the policy so it’s not tied to your current job. You can tailor coverage to your needs with several optional benefits.

** You must be in this age range to purchase Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company’s (Mutual of Omaha) disability income insurance plans. Premiums will remain level to age 67 even if you file a claim. The only way your premium would be changed prior to age 67 is if you change your policy features or premiums are raised collectively for all people with the same Mutual of Omaha policy.
Some of the benefits included in the base policy are:
If an injury or illness prevents you from performing the duties of your regular job, and you aren’t gainfully employed in another occupation, we will pay you a monthly benefit once the elimination period has been met.
If an injury or illness prevents you from performing the duties of your regular job or more than 50 percent of your normal day, we will pay you 50 percent of the total disability monthly benefit once the elimination period has been met. Payable for up to six months.
We cannot cancel this policy, up to age 67, as long as you pay the premium when due.
Premium is waived for the coverage and optional riders after you are disabled for 90 days. We will also refund any premiums you paid during this 90-day period.
If you are disabled by an injury or sickness that is covered by state or federal workers’ compensation, employer’s liability or occupational disease law we will pay you 50 percent of the short-term disability benefits for which you are eligible.
You may be eligible to receive vocational rehabilitation services at our expense.
