As a business owner, you have spreadsheets, balance sheets, profit and loss statements, tax filings, and an endless array of documents available to tell you daily how much money it takes to keep your business going. You’re on top it, and no doubt take great pride in what you’re building. That’s one of the best reasons for protecting it against financial loss should you suffer a disabling event or disease.
The expenses reflected on all those financial documents don't stop if a disability, yours or that of another key employee, should cause the business's income to be reduced or stopped all together for an extended period of time.
A good business plan includes managing the risk of any potential threats to the business. The threat of a disability during your working years is real and disability insurance protection needs to be part of your business plan.
There are several kinds of disability insurance to consider in order to protect your business:
Your goal is to meet all relevant business needs, but to avoid overlapping benefits. It is important to keep your business running and healthy, even if you are not. Since some disabilities are temporary, what you want is time.
Disability Insurance offers you time to heal, time to make good decisions and time for your business to recover, too.
