COVID-19 Leave and Claim Trends Report
Tracking leave and claim trendlines across the United States
June 17, 2020
The Unum Leave and Claim Trends Report offers a line of sight into leave requests and Short Term Disability (STD) claims from our extensive customer base of employers across the United States.
The report shows volumes and the proportion of COVID-19-related claims, helping employers, consultants and brokers understand trends and benchmarks as they navigate the ever-evolving COVID-19 landscape.
We first began releasing these trends and benchmarks in May. The new monthly report, released today, reflects a changing landscape as many employees return to work.
From mid-May to mid-June (Figure 1), COVID-19-related claims continued to stabilize, with a downward trend seen in the first two weeks of June. Alongside this decline, however, we see a notable a rise in the proportion of non-COVID-19 claims (Figure 2).
