Individual Disability Insurance provided by Sarvey Insurance

The term disability income (DI) insurance refers to an insurance policy that provides income to individuals who can no longer work because of a disability. Disability income insurance helps protect people from financial losses if an accident or illness renders them incapable of working and receiving regular income.

What is Individual Disability Insurance ?

Individual disability insurance is a private policy that you buy on your own. That means you pay for the policy, you own it, and if you ever have a disability it will cover a portion of your lost salary. Unlike a group plan through work, individual disability insurance is portable, which means you keep it even if you change jobs, and the benefit is typically tax free. If you’re self-employed or don’t have disability insurance at work, an individual policy can cover you. In addition, if your work benefit only covers a portion of your income, you can use an individual policy to supplement the rest.

What Does Individual Disability Insurance Cover?

Let’s look at the coverage that disability insurance provides:

  • A weekly benefit is provided as compensation for lost income due to short-term impairments up to the policy period when the benefits are payable.
  • In the event of a disability caused by accident, the insured will get a certain percent of the sum covered, depending on the accidental disability insurance terms.
  • A disability insurance policy may also provide a premium waiver as part of the basic coverage.

Some conditions recognized as a disability under disability insurance include blindness, low vision, leprosy, hearing impairment, mental illnesses, and more.

Do you need Individual Disability Insurance ?

Individual Disability Income Protection is a must for a business owner, and highly recommended for executives. If you are a business owner, you should consider purchasing both group and individual policies, if possible. As an executive, you should be sure to obtain group coverage if it is available. Only forty three percent of large companies provide group long term disability insurance.

Your chances are even less likely to get long term disability insurance if you work for a small company. The cost of a plan provided by your employer is usually less than you would pay for an individual disability policy and often you can get coverage automatically without having to qualify medically. If your employer doesn’t provide disability insurance then you may want to consider an individual disability policy.

Or, you may need a personal disability insurance policy to supplement an employer group plan. Be sure to check the group provisions carefully: How long does the group disability insurance coverage last? How much is the benefit? Does the disability insurance policy cover bonus and commission income? Will the coverage continue if you leave that employer?

Already have Individual Disability Insurance? Switching is easy

It might be time to switch insurers whenever the service that your existing insurer provides doesn’t meet your needs. For example, if you have a poor claims experience or an unexplained rate increase, it might be time to consider other options

If you cancel a previous policy before a new policy is effective, you could run into some serious financial problems.
