  • Question regarding my medical own occupation DI quotes

    I just started my attending job and looking to get disability insurance.

    I'm 35, male, non-smoker, no chronic health issues, live in western pa, in cardiology. No loans at this time, but may buy a house soon.

    Benefit pays out 17,800 from 91 days to age 70 medical own occupation.

    Leveled w/o Future increase benefit or coast of living adjustment = 530 / month

    Leveled + FIB + COLA = 861 / month

    Non-leveled + FIB + COLA = 300 /month

    A few questions
    1. How important is a leveled policy?
    2. How important is COLA? I hear mixed responses

    My quotes seem pretty expensive for someone who is relatively healthy...

    You should check carriers that are not Northwestern (Making the assumption since you said Medical Occupation) since most folks want a true own specialty definition of disability and they will cost less per dollar of coverage. If you don’t have a bunch of debt or need maybe you should look at buying what you need and have options for what you might want.

    Costs for your coverage should be about $25 per month per $1,000 of monthly benefit if you are in good health.
