There is a tendency among many people to ignore disability insurance as part of their personal financial planning. However, if you suddenly find yourself incapable to work due to a disability, it can have a shocking effect on your family’s financial stability. If you do not have the right disability cover, you may find it difficult to meet your child’s education expenses, pay bills, and make mortgage payments.
A disability insurance is a part of health insurance that protects you by paying you a fixed amount each month when you are unable to work because of an illness or accident. You will get a portion of your average monthly salary that may help you bear your monthly household expenses.
The disability income protection offered by AIA is called the AIA Premier Disability Cover and it provides a monthly income that gives financial security and peace of mind while you adjust to your new situation.
Some of the features offered by AIA Premier Disability Cover are as follows:
With AIA Premier Disability Cover, you will get full protection during the time you take to recover from your disability, without any obligations to make more premium payments. You will be protected without any interruptions and you will be entitled to the benefits without paying a penny.
AIA will pay you up to two times the monthly payout to make up for the income you lose during the period when you can no longer work due to your infirmity.
To make sure that your road to recovery is smooth, you will be compensated for the restoration costs of up to six times the monthly payout for each disability.
If you have suffered from a catastrophic disability, you will get a lump sum of 24 times the monthly payout. Your immediate family members will get a death benefit of up to 12 times the monthly payout upon your death.
If you get a job that pays less than the payout you bought because of your disability after your accident or illness, AIA’s cover will provide an add-on to match the shortfall.
If you are disabled after an illness or accident that prevents you from earning a living, you will get a monthly payout of up to 75% of your current income until you reach the age of 65 or make a complete recovery, whichever is earlier.
