[1:10] What is Disability Insurance?  

  • Disability insurance is also known simply as “DI Coverage”.
  • This is typically offered through your work.
  • The average person does not understand how much they will earn between the ages of 30-65.
  • Your most valuable asset is your health and your ability to work.
  • Disability plans often only last up to 2 years.

[2:55] How is DI Coverage different than what’s offered through a job?

  • Understand the specifics of your plan through your work.
  • A personal coverage plan is your foundation.
  • The potential loss from an accident, especially if not covered, can be devastating.
  • It is important to understand the risks and volatility of accidents, and potential instability of a career and how it effects your coverage.
