3 The right thing for Your Employees and Your Business It is possible to help employees at this difficult time in their lives without putting the entire financial burden on your business. A Salary Continuation Program, also known as wage continuation or a sick-pay plan, helps protect employees and their families if they become sick or hurt and unable to work. Step 1. Establish a Salary Continuation Program for your company and see instant benefits. * To You and Your Business: Confidence: less uncertainty about how to handle an employee s disability or how to maintain your own lifestyle if you suffer a disability. Comfort: feel good that you are providing for your employees, especially knowing this could benefit their family members or other loved ones. Support: your business won t bear the full burden of providing for disabled employees. Step 2: Fund the plan. Choice: select which employees you want to help and how much you want to support them. Success: as a valuable benefit, it may help recruit, motivate and retain key employees. To Employees: Protection: a portion of their income will continue to be provided to them if they are disabled. Morale: knowing they have an employer who will provide for them can improve their workplace experience. You can further protect your business and help your employees by funding your company s Salary Continuation Program with disability insurance. This proves to be a cost-effective way to ensure the necessary funds are available when an employee suffers a disability See the difference a plan can make Evidence of a plan for tax and legal purposes Premiums for employee coverage are tax-deductable Without a Plan None. Possibly no presumption that your plan exists. Could be challenged; Possibly no Self-funded Written with pre-established payment amounts and durations. Generally, yes With a Plan Insured Written with pre-established payment amounts and durations. Plus, insured funding can help strengthen the presumption of your plan s existence. Generally, yes Payment Amount and Duration Unknown Fixed Fixed Who determines when a disability You You Insurer has occurred and pays claims Employees assured of receiving income No Yes Yes * The program must comply with applicable provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and call other applicable laws and be established in advance of a disability.

4 In general, a Salary Continuation Program should meet the following guidelines: In effect prior to the onset of disability. Detailed and known to the employees. Established for employees. Various programs can be set up for different levels of employees. What are the differences in taxation between employer-paid and employee-paid premiums? Employer-Paid Employee-Paid Premiums are generally tax-deductible to the employer as a business expense. Benefits are generally taxable to the employee. If premiums are paid with after-tax dollars, benefits are generally not taxable to the employee. If premiums are paid with pre-tax dollars, benefits are generally taxable to the employee. What requirements must be met and what documents will I need? The type of documentation needed is based on how your company is organized. Your legal advisor can help you draw up the necessary documents. Some common examples are listed below. Type of Business Corporation Partnership Sole Proprietorship Document Resolution of the Board of Directors Partners Agreement Statement of Benefits Keep in mind that under a Salary Continuation Program funded by individual disability insurance, the participation of some or all prospective participants may depend on the underwriting process. So your program documents should not be finalized until the appropriate individual underwriting decisions have been made.
