Should You Purchase a California Disability Insurance Policy?
The necessity to purchase some insurance coverage maybe easily accepted. Your house is likely covered by a standard homeowner’s policy and you may have health insurance. If you own a car, you probably have an auto policy to prove your financial responsibility and help take care of auto-related damage and injury. California disability insurance is also available but many fail to see its significance. Could it be a worth while investment?
There is no standard disability insurance policy – the cost and fine print are determined by the coverage you want. The first thing you should decide is whether you are looking for short-term or long-term disability coverage. Short-term coverage is meant for times when a debilitating injury keeps you from working, but the condition is not permanent. Long-term disability is intended to provide for circumstances where you could be unable to work for several years, or for the rest of your life.

Are you prepared for such circumstances?
