How the application process works

Apply & verify your income.
There’s no cost for requesting a formal offer from your preferred disability insurance carrier. The insurer will need documentation of your income, your last tax return or an offer letter (if starting or changing jobs).

Phone interview.
The insurance company will need to ask you some questions about your health history.

Free medical exam.
Your medical exam is just another way for the insurance company to get to know you. It will take about 30 minutes and you can schedule it whenever works best for you.



There’s no harm in asking questions or requesting more information. Contact our team anytime.

Understanding long-term disability insurance

Long-term disability insurance is income protection.
If you face a serious health problem that prevents you from working, there’s more than just medical bills to worry about. Long-term disability insurance replaces your income if you’re unable to work so you can focus on what’s important to you.

Maintain your income through it all.
If you rely on your income and could not manage your finances without it, then you should get long-term disability insurance
