Disability Insurance

Disability Insurance Matters

How long can you pay the bills without an income? A few weeks? Maybe a month? What happens if you get sick or pregnant or have an accident and can’t work? How will the rent or mortgage get paid? 

Do you have a rainy day fund? More than half of Americans have less than $1,000 in savings. What would you do if your income stopped because you couldn’t work?

Our disability insurance options  are designed to fill the financial gap that happens when you are unable to work. Your cost for coverage will be available at enrollment.

At Lake County Schools, you will have the option to select one of our four plans.
