Frequently Asked Disability Questions Cheyenne WY

Cost of Living Adjustment ensures that the disability insurance benefit's paid to you will increase over time based on the cost of living. We assume that the cost of living will continue to go up and that is why disability insurance companies have COLA is an option. As usual, you increase the risk to the disability insurance company - and you will pay more for this type of policy.

What is a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA)?
