Medical insurance may help cover treatment due to an accident or illness. But how do you cover your income? Disability insurance may provide a steady stream of income to help cover essential expenses when an extended illness, injury or pregnancy keeps you away from work. You’ll have the comfort of knowing financial support is available when needed to help maintain your quality of life.
- Provides income to help pay for essential living expenses, rent, mortgages, car payments, food, etc.
- Allows you to meet your day-to-day financial obligations, so your long-term goals stay on track
Did you know disability insurance and workers’ compensation are not the same thing? Workers’ compensation only applies if you are hurt at work. Disability insurance covers you when you’re unable to work because of illness or injury — whether suffered at work or not.
