What is disability insurance?

Disability insurance is designed to replace a portion of your income if you become disabled and are unable to earn an income. A disability can result from a number of causes, including an injury, a serious illness or a mental health issue.  And the duration of a disability can be either short- or long-term.

Who will need disability insurance

A disability can strike anyone regardless of their age, gender or occupation. In this sense, anyone who earns an income could benefit from the added protection provided by disability insurance. In particular, those looking to help protect their family and other loved ones from possible financial disruption associated with suddenly becoming unable to work due to illness or injury would be appropriate for this insurance.

You might already have disability insurance through your employer, but you should be aware that this coverage may not meet all your needs. Individual disability insurance can provide you with more flexibility and can also help protect more of your earnings
