Disability insurance is a form of coverage that provides financial support to individuals who are unable to work due to an injury or illness. At Premier Planning Services, we understand the importance of having a safety net in place in case of an unexpected disability.
What does disability insurance cover?
Disability insurance typically covers a portion of an individual's income if they are unable to work due to an injury or illness. The amount of coverage and the length of time it is provided can vary depending on the policy.
Who needs disability insurance?
Anyone who relies on their income to support themselves and their family should consider purchasing disability insurance. This is especially important for individuals who have a high-risk job or have a pre-existing condition that could lead to a disability.
What are the different types of disability insurance?
There are two main types of disability insurance: short-term and long-term. Short-term disability insurance provides coverage for a few weeks to a few months, while long-term disability insurance provides coverage for a longer period of time, often several years.
How does disability insurance differ from workers' compensation?
Disability insurance is a form of coverage that is purchased by individuals, while workers' compensation is a form of coverage that is required by law for most employers. Workers' compensation provides coverage for individuals who are injured on the job, while disability insurance provides coverage for individuals who are unable to work due to an injury or illness.
Can I purchase disability insurance if I am self-employed?
Yes, self-employed individuals can purchase disability insurance. In fact, it is particularly important for self-employed individuals to have this type of coverage, as they do not have the same protections as employees in the event of a disability.
