What is Disability Insurance?

Disability insurance is a type of insurance coverage that provides income replacement when you are off work due to any type of accident, whether it is on the job or not. It protects you and your family from the loss of income that comes from an injury or accident. Depending on the policy you purchase, your insurance provider will cover a portion of your monthly income so you can still pay bills while you are recovering.
