Spring cleaning fever has set in and you've planned your entire Saturday around the task. About halfway through the process, you're carrying a box of items to donate downstairs, but you miss a step and tumble down the last four stairs. Instead of spending the evening relaxing with a cup of tea, basking in the success of the day, you’re in the emergency room learning that you’ve slipped a disc in your back and will need surgery. Are you financially prepared to be without a paycheck for the next several weeks, months, even years? Between medical bills and regular expenses, are you able to survive without a paycheck?
Chances are you have auto insurance to protect your car, but for a lot less you can insure your paycheck. The paycheck that pays your bills and takes care of you and your family.
Calculate an estimated cost of coverage and how much coverage you may need.
Disability insurance can help you avoid the disastrous economic impact of being without earned income. The competitively-priced MTA Disability Plan, designed specifically for MTA members, provides tax-free income either on a short-term or long-term basis and may be available through your local education association. To find out if your local participates, contact your local president.
Local presidents – Don’t let your members be without the protection that could be available to them today – so they have it when they need it. Call Tom Colbert at 888.646.1972, ext. 101 to design a group disability program specific to your members’ needs.
