FAQ: What is the Difference between Workers’ Compensation and Disability Insurance?

Here is an excerpt from a new blog post at GreggMarcus.com:

“This is a question that a lot of people, including many small employers, don’t know the answer to,” says Gregg S. Marcus, a Long Island Insurance Executive. “Many are under the impression that disability insurance and workers’ compensation are the same thing. Although they are similar in benefits, there are fundamental differences.” By understanding the differentiation between the two, you will be more prepared in the case of a major financial loss due to inability to work because of injury.

Workers’ Compensation
Essentially, workers compensation insurance is a “no fault” claim. This means that in exchange for an employee’s waiver of the right to file a suit against an employer, the employee’s medical expenses are paid by the employer’s insurance company until the situation is resolved and the employee returns to work.
