Secure your income during unexpected health challenges and provide peace of mind for you and your loved ones.
What is Disability Insurance?
Disability insurance, often known as DI or disability income insurance, is a vital financial protection tool. It acts as a safety net for individuals, ensuring that they receive a portion of their income if they become unable to work due to a disability, illness, or injury. This coverage is designed to replace lost income during periods of disability and helps maintain financial stability when you need it most.
How Does It Work?
What It Provides
Your ability to earn an income is your most significant financial asset. Disability insurance ensures that you can maintain your financial obligations even when you can't work.
Support for Loved Ones
If you provide for your family, disability insurance ensures they remain financially secure during your recovery period, alleviating their financial burden.
Disability is more common than you might think. Without insurance, you risk depleting your savings, accumulating debt, or facing financial hardship if a disability strikes.
Long-Term Financial Goals
It helps you maintain your long-term financial goals, such as retirement savings and educational plans, without interruption.
