Percent of all workers with STD / LTD insurance coverage

Jennifer Christian MD
 

Bottom line:  In 2018,  substantially less than half of private industry workers had access to short-term disability insurance plans -- and only a third to long-term plans.   A quarter of state and local government workers had access to short-term coverage and more than a third to long-term benefits.  See chart below – and a link to the BLS report from which it came further down.

 

 

Here is a report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics with a bit more detail:   https://www.bls.gov/opub/ted/2018/employee-access-to-disability-insurance-plans.htm
