Don't Overlook Disability Coverage

Along with summer's warm weather and outside activities may come a certain amount of bumps and bruises. Most are minor, easily fixed with a Band-Aid or an ice pack. But what if a summer mishap -- or an accident or illness at any time of year -- keeps you from going to work? How long could you continue to pay your bills if you did not have a paycheck coming in?

Disability insurance can provide you with income if you are sick or hurt and cannot work. There are two main kinds of disability insurance: short-term disability, which begins to pay you sooner but does not pay for as long a time period, and long-term disability, which takes longer to begin payments but continues the payment schedule for a longer period. Disability insurance usually is priced according to your age, gender, job and the amount of income you want to replace.

Your employer probably provides workers compensation insurance, but that only covers job-related injuries or illnesses. Your employer also may offer disability coverage. If this is the case, you should take a hard look at the amount of coverage you receive under your employer plan, and compare that with the amount of money you would need coming in if your income were cut off. Especially if you are in a higher income bracket, it is very likely that your employer's plan does not provide the income replacement you would need.

At The Bensman Group, we are always happy to help you assess your need for disability insurance, as well as for any other insurance coverage. Just give us a call at 847-572-0800, or email me at
