Standard Insurance company, a subsidiary of StanCorp Financial Group, has introduced its Your Choice group voluntary long term disability insurance in Florida.

Your Choice coverage offers a customized approach to purchasing group disability insurance to best suit the income protection needs of the employee.

According to the Standard Insurance, the Your Choice coverage is available for employers with 10 or more insured employees. It allows employees to select the features that best match their personal income protection needs, including: three available maximum benefit periods, six available accident/sickness benefit waiting periods and monthly benefit amounts that can be selected in $100 increments.

Your Choice also offers a confidential Employee Assistance Program and WorkLife Services provided and administered by Horizon Health1 to offer support, guidance and resources to help employees and their household members resolve personal issues.

The Standard second vice president of product management Luce Giroux said the risk of any kind of disability is greater than many people realize, so having protection in place is critical.

"Your Choice gives Floridians peace of mind, knowing they’ll be taken care of in the event of the unexpected,"Giroux said.
