Group disability insurance

Financial protection for the unexpected

Our flexible policy designs and consultative approach help ensure your groups get the coverage they need at prices that fit their budgets.

When a disability occurs, a dedicated Symetra case manager is assigned for the life of the case to provide clear communication throughout the claims process and foster a trusting relationship with the employer, claimant and treating physician.

Two coverages to choose from

Swift Compassionate


When an employee is diagnosed with a serious illness or condition, they often need to make urgent decisions about their care and start treatment right away. To help with these decisions, we’ve expedited the claims process for many diagnoses.
