Long-Term Disability Insurance

Long-term disability insurance to suit your lifestyle.

Serious illnesses or accidents can come out of nowhere. They can interrupt your life, and your ability to work for months—even years. We’ll make sure you have financial support to manage your disability and your household.

 

What is covered and why you should consider it.

The principle of long-term disability insurance is simple enough–you pay premiums and if you become disabled and are no longer able to work, you get regular payments to make up some of the lost income. As with life insurance, it’s often a smart way to make sure you and your family (or financial dependents) are protected if the worst happens.

A variety of payment options are available.

You do need to pay attention to the details with long-term disability insurance, however, as policies have several key options. For example, you’ll need to check how long you have to be disabled before any payout starts, and for how long the payments will continue. Some long-term disability insurance policies pay for a fixed period only (or until you reach retirement age if that comes first), while others guarantee to pay out until you reach retirement age, regardless of how long that is.

Determine payout levels that work for you.

You’ll also need to decide on a payout level. Generally, long-term disability insurance policies pay a maximum of around 50 to 70 percent of whatever your pre-tax salary is when you become disabled. When you take out the policy, you can sometimes choose a lower payout level, which will reduce your premiums.

Getting long-term disability coverage through your employer.

Your employer may cover you with a long-term disability insurance policy or give you access to buy one at a discount. Even if this is the case, don’t automatically rule out getting your own long-term disability insurance policy instead, or in addition to, your company’s policy. The employer’s policy might not offer a payout level that meets your needs, for example. Also, payments you receive from an employer policy may be taxed differently to those you receive from a long-term disability insurance policy you buy yourself.

We understand the details of long-term disability insurance and will be happy to walk you through it.

WOW! We actually found an insurance company that has our back! Terry reviewed our policy's from another company and found that we did not have the correct coverage for our needs. As a result, we moved ALL of our insurance to Creswell Insurance. Terry is very easy to work with and is always available to answer questions and provides excellent customer service. We now have insurance coverage that better fits our needs and at a reasonable price! Thank you Dave Ramsey for helping us find the Crewell Insurance Agency in Milan, TN!

“How many people can say their insurance agent has called them after a hail storm went through, first to make sure you are ok, and second to make sure there was no damage? I can!”
