Disability insurance is designed to replace a portion of your income if you become disabled and are unable to earn an income.
A disability can result from a number of causes, including an injury, a serious illness or a mental health issue. And the duration of a disability can be either short- or long-term.
Long Term Disability Insurance with High Limits: protects you from the possible loss or reduction of income as a result of not being able to work due to a sickness, injury or disability. High income earners can now get coverage of up to $75,000 per month, and sometimes more, in disability benefits.
