A Disability Insurance Policy can provide you with up to 1/2 of your regular paycheck or business earnings. Social Security Disability and SDI might not be enough or work for you. Having coverage is very important as 1/2 of all bankruptcies involve medical issues.
Coverage up to 50% of earnings should come close to being equal to your current income, as you don’t have the expenses of going to work and lower taxes. One in Four of today’s 20 year olds will become disabled before age 67 and the length of time one is disabled is getting longer too. Standard Flyer *
The benefits are usually Income Tax free and of course, the Insurance Company wants to encourage you to go back to work, so they don’t want you to make too much by not working.
