If you’re an independent contractor or running a small business, disability insurance is likely super important to your work-life world. Why? If you become sick or injured and can’t work for some time (and it’s confirmed by a doctor) disability is designed to cover up to about 70% of your paycheck or income. That’s why it’s sometimes nicknamed “paycheck protection.” Basically, disability insurance for independent contractors is designed to help make ends meet until you get back on your feet.
If you have an injury from an unexpected accident — big or small, in work or life — accident insurance might just be your most unexpected hero. Accident insurance works by paying you directly (not your doctor’s office) so you can use the money as you need to. Self-employed individuals can use accident insurance to pay business or household bills, food and gas, or medical expenses like co-pays. You decide!
Why should you think about life insurance? It’s one way to rest easy knowing the people in your life will receive financial assistance in the event of your passing. Life insurance is particularly important in the prime adult years of your life, because these years are often the most expensive for the people you love. Life insurance can provide them with the financial means to help with costs like cars, mortgages, college, everyday living, and even funeral expenses.
