A plan for income when you can’t work

You and your family depend on your regular paycheck to take care of the basic needs of everyday life—food, shelter, clothing, transportation, medical care, insurance—with maybe a little left over for savings or fun.

But what if that paycheck stopped for a while because you weren't able to work because of a sickness or accident? How long could you continue to pay your bills?

That's where disability insurance comes in. Disability insurance can help you continue your income if you become totally disabled as a result of these events:*

  • suffering an unexpected illness
  • having a baby
  • hurting yourself doing an everyday activity

Watch this short video to see how disability insurance helps protect your paycheck when you can't work.

*The definition of "totally disabled" will vary by policy. You should check your own insurance certificate or policy for your specific coverage.
