What is disability insurance?

If you become sick or injured and cannot work, disability insurance replaces about 60% of your gross income — which generally amounts to your actual take-home pay. Since health insurance only covers your medical procedures and recovery, a disability policy is a necessary supplement to pay for your everyday bills and expenses.

How much does disability insurance cost?

Average long-term disability insurance policies cost between 1% and 3% of your annual salary. Get a disability quote based on your needs for the most accurate estimate, which depends on several factors, including your:

  1. Age The older you are, the more expensive your policy will be. You can expect to pay more than someone who bought it at a younger age.
  2. Gender Based on claims data, women are more susceptible to a disability and make more disability claims. Because of this, premiums for women are typically higher.
  3. Smoking history Smokers or recent smokers pay higher premiums.
  4. State of residence Residents of states with a higher number of disability claims will pay more for coverage.
