Disability Income Insurance

A sudden interruption of income - due to an extended period of sickness or injury - can have serious financial consequences for many of today's employees. You may receive group long term disability benefits through your employer, however it is important to make sure the benefits offered by your company are adequate for your needs. Group long term disability benefits are taxable if your employer pays the premiums, may be capped at a relatively low amount, and may not cover variable income such as bonuses or commissions. As such, these benefits may not be enough to maintain your lifestyle or pay all your bills if you become too sick or injured to work.

An individual disability income insurance policy can help supplement your group long term disability benefits and protect a larger portion of your income. This, in turn, provides a fundamental layer of security for your financial future. An individual disability income insurance policy purchased on your own is fully portable, meaning you won't have to worry about losing coverage if you change jobs, and the benefits paid are tax free if you are the premium payor.* In addition, an individual disability income insurance policy is non-cancelable by the carrier (as long as the premiums are paid); and with a guaranteed renewable policy, your premiums will never change for the life of the policy.
