What is
Disability Cover ?

Disability insurance provides financial support to policyholders who become disabled and are unable to work, either temporarily or permanently. This support comes in the form of regular income replacement payments. A client might take out a disability insurance policy to secure financial stability in case they become disabled and unable to earn an income.

Keep in mind that disability insurance is different from critical illness insurance policys, as it focuses on providing income replacement when you're unable to work due to disability rather than paying a lump sum upon the diagnosis of a specific critical illness.

If you become disabled and meet the policy's definition of disability, you must submit a claim with the necessary medical documentation to the insurance company.

Benefit payments

Once your claim is approved, the insurance company will begin making regular payments to you, replacing a portion of your lost income. These payments will continue for the duration of the benefit period specified in the policy or until you are no longer considered disabled.

Rehabilitation and return to work
Rehabilitation and return to work

Some disability insurance policies may include provisions to cover rehabilitation costs or provide incentives for policyholders to return to work, such as partial disability benefits or a gradual decrease in benefits as you transition back to your job.

Policy termination

Disability insurance policies generally remain in force as long as you continue to pay premiums and meet the policy's terms and conditions. The policy may terminate when you reach a specific age (often 65) or retire
