Choosing Your Term for Disability Insurance

Think about how you would survive if your income was taken away. That's what disability insurance is for. Long-term disabilities can keep people from working, which means they may lose their homes and any financial stability that comes with it all because there will be no more monthly payments coming in on time every month like before when someone had this kind of coverage through work or other sources such as Social Security Administration (SSA).

Disability policies have two main types: short- and long-term.

Short-term Disability insurance helps to cover the costs of lost wages for a limited period of time. If you're unable to work due to illness or injury, this coverage will provide financial stability until your condition has improved enough that it's safe and reasonable to return to employment. Short-Term Disability Insurance generally covers physicians between 3–6 months, replaces up to 80 percent of your income while you’re covered, and covers temporary disabilities such as:

  • Back injuries

  • Arthritis

  • Childbirth or Maternity Leave

  • Vehicle Accident Injuries.

Long-Term Disability (LTD) Insurance covers permanent disabilities caused by chronic conditions which stop an individual from working as well as providing needed regular income during covered time periods The goal of long-term disability insurance is to replace your take-home pay prior to your disability, which can include a variety of catastrophic issues including:

  • Cancer

  • Mental health disorders

  • Vehicle accidents

  • Bone breaks

  • Musculoskeletal disorders
