Disability Insurance

Your ability to earn a living and support your lifestyle, including your children’s education and your retirement plans, hinges on your physical and mental capacity to work. Disability insurance is a critical safeguard designed to protect you if you become unable to work due to illness or injury. It provides financial stability by replacing a portion of your lost income, ensuring that you can continue to meet your financial obligations and maintain your standard of living even if you face unexpected health challenges.

Disability Insurance Explained:

Disability income protection insurance is vital for several reasons. First, while you may have some coverage through your employer, it’s often insufficient to cover all your needs during a disability. Additionally, employer-sponsored disability insurance typically ends if you change jobs. Government benefits, such as those from the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Quebec Pension Plan (QPP), offer limited benefits and may not fully compensate for your lost income.

The risk of experiencing a disability that lasts 90 days or longer before reaching the age of 65 is significant. For disabilities extending beyond 90 days, the average duration ranges from 2.1 to 3.2 years for individuals under 55. This statistic underscores the importance of having a robust disability insurance policy in place to protect your income and financial future.

Disability can strike anyone at any time, often without warning. The financial impact of not being able to work can be devastating, not just for you but also for your family. Disability insurance offers a critical layer of financial protection, ensuring that you’re prepared for the unexpected.

If you’re unsure about your current disability coverage or if you’re considering obtaining disability insurance, now is the time to act. Consulting with an insurance professional can provide you with the information you need to choose the right policy for your needs. Don’t wait until it’s too late to protect your income and secure your family’s financial future.
