Disability insurance

The loss of income due to a disability is one of our greatest fears. Disability insurance is designed to protect your income if you are unable to work on a permanent or partial basis. Levine Financial Group offers non-cancellable coverage tailored to meet your individual needs. We offer several options for you to consider in your disability policy, including an own occupation definition of disability, a cost of living adjustment, a future income option, HIV and Hepatitis B and C coverage for medical professionals and a conversion to long term care coverage.

Own occupation is the most comprehensive definition for total disability. It states that if you are unable to perform the important duties of your own occupation due to injury or sickness and are under the care of a physician, you will receive full disability benefits.

The cost of living adjustment (COLA) protects you from inflation while on a disability claim by ensuring that your benefit is adjusted annually to reflect changes in the consumer price index.

A future income option (FIO) allows you to increase your monthly disability benefit on the anniversary date of your policy with no medical required.

The conversion to long term care option which allows you to convert your disability insurance to long term care coverage. Long term care insurance provides you with up to $9,000 per month ($200/day) of lifetime coverage for care in your own home or in a facility and benefits are paid up to age 100.
