HOW IS YOUR SPOUSE COVERED BY THE HARTFORD?
Depending on your plan, disability insurance:
- Pays based on annual income
- Pays up to 2 years or to age 67 (Short or Long-term)
- Pays for all on- and off-the-job accidents, illnesses, and injuries after 60, 90 or 180 day wait
- Provides payment for pregnancy, surgery or illness (if out of leave)
WHAT CAN THE HARTFORD OFFER MY SPOUSE THAT OTHER INSURANCE COMPANIES DO NOT?
The Hartford is the only insurance company that offers disability insurance for spouses. Individual plans may quote up to $4000. The Hartford offers protection with rates averaging $7.00 to $30.00 per pay depending on their age and salary.
WHY ISN’T HEALTH INSURANCE ENOUGH?
Health Insurance is only meant to cover the cost of medical bills. When you are unable to work, it does not cover the cost your everyday expenses.
MY SPOUSE CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE SICK LEAVE. WHY DO THEY NEED IT NOW?
Health insurance will cover the cost of medical bills, but will not cover everyday bills when you are unable to work. Disability covers your bills and expenses if your spouse has exhausted their leave and is not receiving pay.
WHY DOES MY SPOUSE NEED DISABILITY INSURANCE UNDER THIS POLICY?
If your spouse is unable to work, they are missing a paycheck needed for everyday bills and expenses (Visa, Car Payment, Mortgage, etc.).
