SHORT TERM DISABILITY INSURANCE
For many people, losing just one paycheck can be difficult, but when accident or illness keeps you from working for an extended period of time, difficulty can turn into disaster. Without short term supplemental disability insurance, families can be forced to cut back on even the basics, like food, clothing, transportation and housing.
Combined Insurance's Income Protector Policies are clearly written and easy to understand. Our disability income insurance helps you replace some of the income lost due to a disabling accident or illness and we help you make the best choice for the right plan for you and your family.
Ways to Protect You
Five ways our supplemental disability income protection plan will work for you and your family.
- HELPS REPLACE VITAL INCOME: This supplemental disability insurance plan helps you and your family maintain your standard of living.
- PARTIAL DISABILITY BENEFIT *: Our supplemental disability insurance pays 50% of your usual benefits for a period of time following Total Disability.
- WAIVER OF PREMIUM: With this type of disability insurance plan, you can stop paying your premium when you're disabled.*
- GUARANTED COVERAGE: You are covered until age 65, or age 70 with company approval. Your premium cannot change unless premiums are adjusted for everyone in your class.
- "OWN OCCUPATION" DEFINITION OF TOTAL DISABILITY: Many companies adhere to the "any occupation" of disability. Ours offers you an advantage over those types of supplemental disability insurance.
