If you’ve ever worked with a financial advisor on your investments and retirement, they may have brought up the subject of disability insurance with you. But should you purchase your insurance coverage from the same person who handles your investments?
In many cases, those individuals are more focused on the financial side of their practice, and are less likely to be well-versed in the nuances of insurance, particularly disability insurance.
In this episode, Billy discusses the reasons that disability insurance specialists can get you policies that pay a greater benefit and cost you less in premium than regular financial advisors, as well as other potential risks to making a purchase from the wrong person.
Highlights from this episode include:
- Why buying your policy from a specialist can save you from catastrophic financial loss (2:59)
- How a disability insurance specialist will cost you less money when you purchase, but get you more money if you have to use your policy (3:50)
