Disability Insurance Reductions

Everyone wants to get their insurance as reasonably priced as they can. While disability insurance tends to be expensive, there are things that you can do to keep the price as low as possible. Here are a couple of common sense approaches to reducing your costs:

  1. Select a longer waiting period before benefit's start.

    If you can wait longer than 30 days for benefit's to start, you will save money on your premiums. This is the same principle as raising your deductible on your auto or home insurance you reduce the risk to the insurance company and so you'll pay less money.

One option is to select benefit's payable to age 65 when you would normally retire - instead of lifetime benefit's. Although a small change, this should also save you some premium cost.

In fact, you are generally better off to choose to select benefit's payable until age 65 than to select benefit's payable only for a specific time period and then re-train. Why? Well, you don't want to have to collect for a lifetime, but if you are in that position, you could have many years to retirement age and no benefit's. You may or may not qualify for social assistance, and as I have noted elsewhere on this site, getting social assistance is g...
