A disabling injury or sickness can happen in the blink of an eye. If you have to stop working, chances are your income may stop too. But it doesn't have to if you help protect yourself with disability insurance.
Under the Disability Income Insurance Plan, you can receive a monthly benefit that you select. With this benefit you can keep up better with your living expenses until you get back to work.
Don't let a disability put an end to your income. Disability insurance should be an essential part of everyone's portfolio.
