Loss of income protection – Disability income insurance
Disability Insurance Quotes Online | Disability Insurance Riders | Aflac Alternatives | Mortgage Protection
Your income is the largest asset you’ll ever own: it helps you pay for all your other assets, home, car, retirement, lifestyle. It makes sense to protect your ability to pay for your other assets, if your paycheck stops due to an accident, illness or any medical reason. If your life is already insured, protecting your family from financial ruin, how about if you actually SURVIVE but can’t work? That’s when Long-Term and Short-Term Disability Insurance comes in. These disability insurance policies can be employer-paid or individually-paid.
Employer-paid or individual disability insurance?
If you’re lucky, your job offers benefits including disability income insurance, but that normally covers only 60% of your base salary and the benefit is taxable, leaving you with about 40% of your income. I don’t know about you, but I would have major financial problems if I had to live on less than half of my paycheck.
You can purchase your individual disability insurance policy regardless of your employer’s contribution. With the supplemental individual disability insurance (IDI) policy, you may be able to cover up to 100% of your income, including for certain catastrophic illnesses.
