What is Disability Insurance?
Disability Income Insurance is insurance coverage that provides monthly payments, up to a specified amount and for a specific time period after a covered illness or injury occurs. Insurance must be purchased prior to your illness or injury. Disability Insurance provides a way to protect your income and your standard of living.
  • Disability Insurance protects your most valuable asset—You, and your ability to earn income. If you become disabled, you most likely will not be able to earn enough income to cover your continued living expenses.
Disability Income Insurance will provide monthly payments to help meet your daily living expenses.
