Long-Term Disability

What would happen if you suddenly became disabled and couldn’t work? Would you and your family be able to meet your financial obligations? Would you be able to pay your bills? For many people the answer is NO. Long term disability insurance is designed to help protect you against a loss of income in the event you become disabled and are unable to work for an extended period of time.
