Disability Income Insurance

Most people understand the need for health insurance, life insurance, homeowners insurance and car insurance. But what if the unexpected happened and you suddenly weren’t able to earn a living because of illness or injury? Not only would you have the stress of meeting everyday living expenses, you might also have to put other goals, like saving for retirement, on hold. 

Disability income insurance from Northwestern Mutual can help you protect your most valuable asset – your ability to earn an income.

If your employer offers a comprehensive package of benefits, you may have access to group disability income insurance at work. That’s a great starting point, but most group plans cover only a portion of your income. Could you survive a 40 percent cut in pay? For that reason, you may want to consider supplementing group coverage with individual disability income insurance. Learn more about how you can protect your paycheck with disability income insurance in this three-minute video.

If you’re a business owner, you also need to think about whether your business would be able to continue without you. Disability overhead insurance reimburses certain business expenses, and key person disability insurance helps to minimize the loss of a key contributor due to disability. Learn more about how these products can help you grow and protect the value of your business in this two-minute group disability income insurance video.

Whether you own a business or not, consider disability income insurance a fundamental layer in your plan to secure your financial future.
