How Much Disability Insurance Benefit Do I Get?

What is a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA)?
This 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.

Disability Insurance - What if I can't work full-time, but can work part-time?

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...
