We've designed our policies to meet the unique needs of doctors and dentists. So when you have coverage with Northwestern Mutual, you'll have more choice and more control.
We understand that you likely have a wide range of responsibilities, and how you'll want to spend your time if you're sick or injured may be a little different for everyone.
So unlike other disability insurance products, ours may give you more options for what you'll do with the next chapter of your life.
Whether you can only perform some of your main responsibilities, or can no longer perform any of them, you'll have options—you could continue to work and receive a partial benefit, stop working and collect a full benefit, or switch gears to a new career while our Medical Own Occupation disability income insurance helps make up some of the difference in your earned income.
