Benefits

  • Attracts, retains, and rewards key employees
  • No IRS approval needed
  • No administration needed
  • Premiums are deductible as compensation to employees
  • Bonus is considered wages

What type of coverage do I need for my business?

For most employers in Hawaii who have one or more full-time, part-time, or temporary employees, a Temporary Disability Insurance (TDI) policy is required for your employees. This type of insurance covers some of an employee’s wages lost due to off-the-job sickness, injury, or pregnancy.
