Cost of Living Adjustment ensures that the disability insurance benefit's paid to you will increase over time based on the cost of living.

This is a fairly unusual rider on a policy.

Disability Insurance - What does "Waiver of premium" provision mean?
This clause means that you do not have to pay premiums on the disability insurance policy after you're disabled for 90 days.

This actually makes sense. If you are disabled (and not making money) you don't want to have to be paying you...
