Disability and Supplemental


Disability Insurance

Disability insurance is a type of insurance coverage that provides financial protection to individuals in the event that they become disabled and are unable to work due to an injury, illness, or medical condition. This insurance is designed to replace a portion of the policyholder's income, helping them cover essential expenses and maintain their financial stability while they are unable to work.

Key features of disability insurance include:

  1. Income Replacement: Disability insurance offers a percentage of the policyholder's pre-disability income as a benefit, allowing them to continue meeting their financial obligations even if they cannot work.
  2. Short-Term and Long-Term Coverage: Disability insurance is often categorized as short-term or long-term. Short-term disability insurance covers a portion of the policyholder's income for a shorter duration, usually up to a few months. Long-term disability insurance provides coverage for a longer period, potentially extending for years or until the policyholder reaches retirement age.
  3. Definition of Disability: Policies may define disability differently. Some policies consider the policyholder disabled if they cannot perform their current occupation, while others require the inability to perform any gainful employment.
  4. Waiting Period: Disability insurance policies often have a waiting period, also known as an elimination period, which is the period of time the policyholder must be disabled before benefits become payable.
  5. Benefit Amount: The benefit amount is typically a percentage of the policyholder's pre-disability income, usually ranging from 50% to 70%.



In the event of an unforeseen circumstance – if you're faced with illness or injury that prevents you from working – do you feel confident that your savings or the disability benefits provided by your employer would be sufficient?

Individual disability income insurance offers a safety net for your income, providing financial security if you experience an extended period of disability. Anyone whose livelihood depends on their income to cover expenses and uphold their way of life should seriously consider the protection offered by disability income insurance.

Key Highlights of Disability Income Insurance:

  • Safeguards a portion of your earned income, ensuring the preservation of your current standard of living.*
  • Can serve as a complement to any existing disability benefits you might have access to.
  • Fully portable coverage that you own and can carry with you throughout your professional journey.
  • Benefits are often tax-free.**
  • Flexible solutions tailored to accommodate different income levels.



Supplemental Insurance:

Supplemental insurance refers to additional insurance coverage that is purchased to complement or supplement existing primary insurance policies. These policies are designed to fill gaps in coverage, provide extra benefits, or address specific needs that might not be fully covered by primary insurance.

Key features of supplemental insurance include:

  1. Specific Coverage: Supplemental insurance policies are often designed to address specific situations or needs. For example, there are supplemental policies for dental care, vision care, critical illness, accident coverage, hospital indemnity, and more.
  2. Limited Scope: Unlike primary insurance policies that cover a wide range of risks, supplemental insurance policies focus on providing specialized coverage for specific events or conditions.
  3. Cash Benefits: Many supplemental insurance policies provide cash benefits directly to the policyholder, allowing them to use the funds as needed for medical expenses, living expenses, or other financial needs.
  4. Coordination with Primary Insurance: Supplemental insurance can be used to enhance primary insurance policies by providing additional benefits that are not covered by the primary policy.
  5. Customizable: Individuals can choose supplemental insurance policies that align with their specific needs, preferences, and budget. This allows for a more tailored approach to coverage.

Supplemental insurance can be particularly valuable for individuals who have gaps in their primary insurance coverage or who want extra financial protection in certain situations. These policies can provide peace of mind and financial support when unexpected events occur.
