Are long-term disability benefits indexed for inflation?
This depends entirely on the policy. In many Group Benefit plans there is no indexation for inflation
, which means that the initial amount of the benefit will remain the same throughout the claim. In order to determine whether your policy is indexed
you should request a copy of the policy or obtain a benefit booklet. In the alternative you can ask your HR manager or insurance agent for clarification in your specific circumstances.
