Disability Insurance

We all work hard at loanDepot, and most of us don’t like the idea of missing work. Life has other plans sometimes, and whether due to illness or injury, we may find ourselves in need of time off work – per Doctor’s orders.

 

One of the greatest stressors of missing work is financial. Short-term disability plans cover absences from just over a week to a maximum of 6 months. For medical absences in excess of 6 months, Long-Term Disability provides peace of mind.

Starting in 2022, all eligible loanDepot employees will be covered by a Short-Term Disability plan paid for by the company. This base plan offers a benefit of 60% of your earnings to a maximum of $500 per week. 

Employees who would like a higher level of coverage can elect the buy-up Short-Term Disability plan.

If you elect the Short-Term Disability Buy-Up or Long Term Disability plan as a new hire, you won't need to complete an evidence of insurability to qualify for coverage. If you elect coverage later, such as during Open Enrollment or due to a qualifying life event, you would need to complete a medical questionnaire, and coverage is not guaranteed.
