Long-Term Disability Insurance

Becoming a physician isn’t easy. Losing your physician-level income shouldn’t be either.

Speak With An Advisor

Long-term disability insurance, often referred to as income protection, works hard when you can’t. This coverage type protects you from loss of income should a health problem, such as an illness or injury, render you unable to work.

Simply put, disability insurance can help physicians continue to pay bills and support their families until they're able to return to work. Think of it as long-term protection that not only helps protect you and your income, but also your assets, as you are less likely to dip into savings and retirement accounts.

Why You Need Long-term Disability Insurance

We understand the statistics below are startling, however, being well-informed to the realities of potentially becoming disabled during your career helps you better prepare yourself for the unexpected.

  • According to the Social Security Administration, one in three working Americans will become disabled for 90 days or more before the age of 65.

  • A 2012 survey by the Consumer Federation of America reported that 77 percent of Americans stated they would suffer great or moderate financial hardship if unable to work for three months. While some people may not report a hardship within a three-month period, what if that period stretched out to three years? How would this affect you?
