Disability Insurance

What Residents Need To Know About Disability Insurance

Like most residents, you’re likely to be young, healthy, and paying off a mountain of student debt. Purchasing disability insurance may be the last thing on your mind. But accidents do happen and even young people get serious illnesses.

If an accident or illness leaves you unable to work, disability insurance helps replace your lost income.

When Residency Ends, Your Coverage May Too

Disability plans for residents may not be portable, so you may not be able to take your current plan with you if you move to another hospital or enter private practice. But you can take steps now to secure the future you’re working so hard to build.

Help Protect a Lifetime of Earnings. Get a Lifetime of Savings.

At this stage in your training, you could have 35 years or more of practicing medicine in front of you. Your lifetime earnings could be many millions of dollars. If a disability disrupts your plans, disability insurance will help preserve your earnings.

And because many disability policies are priced based on age, by buying a disability policy now when you are young, you could also benefit from a lifetime of savings.
