A major insurer has posted a new benefits Web tool for employees.[@@]

The insurer, Hartford Financial Services Group Inc., Hartford, has put the site, the Hartford At Work, at http://thehartfordatwork.com

Employees can use the site to file short-term disability claims, check on disability claims, or check on applications for group life or group disability insurance, Hartford says.

The site also offers a calculator that consumers can use to estimate life, disability, and accidental death and dismemberment needs.
