Disability Insurance

You never expect to be in a position where you can’t work, but something as simple as a back injury or maternity leave could mean time off without pay. Disability Insurance from Unum helps cover what traditional insurance leaves out.

Help protect your way of life

When you get sick or injured and are unable to work, you don’t want to worry about how you’ll pay the bills or wonder where the money for next week’s groceries will come from. Disability Insurance helps replace a portion of your paycheck — think of it as income protection.

Disability Insurance might make sense for you if:

  • You don’t have a large amount of savings or other sources of income available.
  • You depend on your income to support your lifestyle.
  • You can’t afford to be out of work for weeks or months at a time.
