Eric Clementi was the person that helped me from the day that I asked for a quote online. He was very thorough with explaining every minor details that might be misunderstood between the client and the provider. Eric is very professional with his tone of voice which makes a potential client feel at ease. Nonetheless, I’ve tried different insurance broker, their monthly fees are way above the average, Alliance income Services Corp has the most decent fee for a family of five… it’s a bang for the buck kind of thing. Truly recommend this company. 👍Mark EngelMark Engel ★★★★★ Eric Clemente and Ryan were excellent to deal with.

What is Disability Insurance?

In the event you become temporarily or permanently disabled, Disability Insurance will replace between 60% to 85% of your income. Disabilities are more common in Canada than you may think, with almost 25% of population aged between 45 and 64 living with at least one disability. 

You also need to consider common temporarily disabilities, such as a broken arm or leg, that can prevent you from working for several months depending on your profession. Furthermore, if your occupation involves intense physical activity, then injuries and accidents may be more prevalent within your field, making Disability Insurance that much more desirable.

What are the levels of coverage?

Insurance companies differentiate between coverage for being unable to work in “own occupation” or “any occupation”. “Own occupation” coverage provides income replacement if you cannot continue working at your job after becoming disabled (either temporarily or permanently). “Any occupation” coverage, however, applies to becoming unable to work in any occupation that is aligned with your education and experience.

 

For example, if a construction worker breaks an arm and is unable to work for 60 days, under “own occupation” that individual would receive partial income replacement. However, under “any occupation” coverage the construction worker could be relegated for time being to office work (planning, scheduling, supplier relations), and not receive benefits. Accordingly, “any occupation” coverage has lower premiums.

What is the cost of Disability Insurance?

Like with most other insurance products, the younger and healthier you are, the lower your premiums. However, the cost of Disability Insurance is also heavily impacted by your occupation. If you work in an environment prone to workplace accidents, your premium will be higher than that of an office worker.

 

Other factors that affect your premiums include your salary, amount of coverage, and duration of benefits. Depending on your circumstance, you can expect to pay anywhere between 1% to 5% for either Short-Term or Long-Term Disability Insurance.

Types of Disability Insurance in Canada

You can get either Short-Term Disability Insurance or Long-Term Disability Insurance, or both, depending on your situation:

Short-Term Disability Insurance

It typically replaces 70% of your salary for up to 6 months if you become unable to work due to a disability. Before purchasing this type of Disability Insurance, check if it is provided by your employer. If your employer does offer it, they may require you to use up your other employment benefits (such as sick leave or vacation days) before your coverage kicks in. You can still purchase a Short-Term Disability Insurance policy if you are dissatisfied with your employer’s coverage.

Long-Term Disability Insurance

Long-Term Disability Insurance replaces on average 60% of your salary for two or more years, depending on your chosen coverage. However, your benefits take effect after Short-Term Disability Insurance or Employment Insurance coverage ends, and you have exhausted your employee benefits such as sick leave and paid vacation days.
