Many times the cost of disability coverage has skyrocketed, making it a financial burden.
But if you purchase private coverage early on, it will be cheaper but also portable. That policy will cover you no matter where your career takes you, allowing you to focus on your work, knowing your income is protected if you become disabled.
In this episode, I discuss why portability is important and how to get a policy that will protect you for your entire career.
Highlights from this episode include:
