Disability Insurance

Disability insurance is a type of insurance that replaces income you lose if you have a long-term illness or injury and cannot work. Disability insurance is an important type of coverage for working-age people to consider. Disability insurance does not cover the cost of rehabilitation if you are injured.

Many individuals think they have their family’s insurance situation under control if they have a life insurance policy. While life insurance is certainly key to protecting the future of your family and loved ones, you may also want to consider disability insurance.

One third of all workers will have an absence from the work force for at least three months at some point in their careers. This absence is usually the result of illness or injury. Disability insurance has come to the rescue of many individuals who had the foresight to purchase a policy. Comparatively speaking, it is worth the investment when compared to the financial devastation and stress that could arise without it. Disability insurance is often considered to be income insurance.

You need to ask yourself if you were forced out of work due to an illness, or if you were disabled due to an injury, would your family be able to stay afloat financially? An absence of only a few short months from work has crippled the credit and financial standing of many individuals.

When Should I Purchase Disability Insurance?

Undoubtedly, the best time to shop for disability insurance is when you still have income and are relatively healthy. By doing so, you can locate a policy which will fit your needs and which is also fairly economical. Many individuals have waited to purchase disability insurance until they were diagnosed with an illness, or after they were afflicted with a disability--only to find that they could purchase little, or no, coverage. If coverage was offered, the premiums were usually very expensive.

How Do I Find and Choose Disability Insurance?

You can contact insurance companies in your area to receive quotes for disability insurance. When you are searching for disability insurance, do a side by side comparison of what is being offered. Just because one policy is more expensive than another doesn’t necessarily mean the benefits are that much better. Likewise, a less expensive policy does not necessarily mean it is below par. Choose the policy that will best suit your financial needs.

No one truly likes the idea of adding another insurance premium to their list of expenses each month. However, it could possibly be the life raft that keeps your family afloat if something dire should happen.
