Rest easy knowing you have the right insurance in the event of illness or injury.
Disability Insurance (DI) and Critical Illness (CI) insurance are both types of living benefits insurance that individuals and professionals set up to protect themselves, their families and their financial assets in case of serious illness or injury.
The two are easy to confuse, but they address different needs.
So, what’s the difference between Critical Illness and Disability Insurance?
Disability insurance replaces your income from employment or self-employment. It pays out a monthly benefit, typically until age 65. .
Critical Illness insurance is a product that pays out a tax-free lump sum in the event you are diagnosed with a life-threatening critical illness like cancer, heart attack or stroke, to name a few.
At Bold Financial, we look at your needs, profession, lifestyle and risks to help you determine the living benefits policy that is right for you.
