Disability/Critical Illness Insurance

No one likes to think about what their life would be like when they are sick or hurt and unable to work. As an Insurance and/or financial professional, it is your responsibility that they do!

Disability planning, which should include both DI and CI insurance considerations, is a key component of any sound financial and risk management plan. When your client loses the ability to work, their dreams for the future are imperiled. How will the bills be paid, what happens to their home, will the children still be able to go to college, will they be able to enjoy a secure retirement? The questions are as numerous and varied as the individual situations your client will face. No two people are alike and no two disabilities are either! For your clients who need their income to survive, disability insurance and Critical Illness insurance will be big part of the solution.

If you do disability planning for your clients, then Critical Illness Insurance, or CI, needs to be considered an integral part of any complete Disability Insurance Plan. Unlike DI, CI is a lump sum payment normally made upon diagnosis of a covered condition such as cancer, heart attack, stroke, paralysis, major burns, blindness, deafness, accidental loss of speech and several other serious conditions. CI provides that “upfront money” your client will need to seek the very best treatment solution available and still have the financial peace of mind that they are not required to spend down assets to get treatment.
