How Does Disability Insurance for Businesses Works?
You might need coverage as a business owner, for employees, or both. Here’s a brief overview of both options.
Business Disability Insurance
Disability insurance is an important risk management tool that all businesses should consider when looking for adequate coverage. If the business owner becomes disabled and cannot work, the company could suffer financial hardship or even face closure due to the inability to meet ongoing expenses. By providing coverage for critical overhead costs, business disability insurance helps maintain the continuity of the business and protects against potential financial losses during the owner's disability period. It also provides the necessary funds to pay for medical costs, lost wages, and any other economic losses associated with a disability. Each plan is customized to address specific individual business needs and budgets.
