Disability and life insurance are two of the most important investments a doctor can make when it comes to financial security for your family and your income.
The problem is, when insurance shopping, you can be overwhelmed by how much time it takes to get everything done. Many people will end up skipping one or the other and end up not fully protected.
That’s why we recommend getting disability and life insurance together, where you can apply for both life insurance and disability insurance at the same time.
