Why should you consider personal disability insurance?

  • Worker’s Compensation only covers work related accidents.
  • Unemployment insurance only covers 15 weeks.
  • Canada Pension Plan: Are you comfortable relying on the government for a benefit that can change?
  • Group and association coverage can fill a valuable role in long-term disability protection.

However, the benefit may be limited by the definition of disability and coverage amount.
Remember, a custom designed individual disability plan will provide you with guaranteed coverage and guaranteed premiums.
