Important points to remember...
Some considerations

  • Expenses may increase significantly during a disability – e.g. additional medical or childcare expenses
  • Disability may result in the loss of more than one income -  e.g. if your spouse must give up work to become a caregiver. Your spouse’s income may be essential to your financial security

Some suggestions

  • Maximize your available disability coverage
  • Consider coverage for your spouse’s income
  • Discuss additional / alternate risk management strategies such as critical illness insurance with Quattro Insurance Solutions
