Finding the Best Policy
Owning a disability insurance policy is the most logical way for a medical resident or fellow to protect his/her future earnings and quality of life. Since every disability insurance policy is different, it is critical that new physicians work with a financial professional who can effectively and objectively help them understand the differences. Below are some of the policy provisions we feel are most important for medical residents and fellows:
- Non-cancelable and guaranteed renewable
- Definition of total disability and medical specialty wording
- Residual disability rider with enhanced recovery benefits
- Future increase option rider to accommodate increases in your income
- Cost of Living Adjustment rider
- True Own Occupation
- Student Loan Protection rider
- Retirement Protection Plus
Own-Occupation for Medical Residents
The true own-occupation definition of total disability may very well be the most comprehensive definition available to physicians today. Our office specializes in providing medical residents with disability insurance that includes the own-occupation definition of disability for the full benefit period of the policy, and can even include an optional graded-lifetime benefit.
