A disability insurance plan provides you financial protection in the event of an accident, injury or illness
Disability insurance coverage is essentially the protection of your paycheque if you were ever unable to work due to an accident, illness or injury. While it would be nice to save every penny we make and never have to ensure hardship, oftentimes we are forced to deal with difficulties when we least expect it. It is important to manage your financial risk for a potential disability, whether it is long-term or short-term.
In Canada, disability insurance can help provide income protection, which will allow individuals to cover the cost of their living expenses without dipping into their retirement savings. When a return to work is unknown, you’ll be especially thankful for access to disability benefits. Allow our professionals to help get you started by contacting us today.

Your quote today
An advisor at Shelter Bay will be able to provide you with a thorough quote and accurate premiums for both a personal disability plan and group coverage. Due to COVID-19, all quotes are done over the phone or via email.
When calculating your quote, we do require more information on your individual situation than for most other coverages. We will inquire about:
•Age & Smoking Status: This is the starting point regarding all your basic and health-related information.
•Occupation: An insurance company will classify each job category with a risk rating. Training, dedication, experience and job description are all factored into the rating for occupation.t
•Employment Status: When calculating coverage, your relationship to your current company matters. For insurance, the insurer will want to know whether you’re an employee or if you hold ownership.
•Income: An insurance company will also consider your past earnings when determining the amount of coverage available. You are unable to purchase more coverage than your current income. For medical students, the level of education completed can be used for assessment instead of income.
•Current Coverage: The amount of coverage available will depend on the insurance already in place through government plans, like the Canada Pension Plan, life insurance or employment. You cannot insure for more than a certain percentage of your total income. The percentage is variable and decreases for higher earners.
Personal Long-Term Disability Insurance
Disability insurance can help to provide income protection. Whether you’re a professional, business owner, executive or employee, your ability to earn is a valuable asset. This policy will replace a percentage of your paycheque if you are ever ill or injured or in an accident. You can continue to cover expenses without having to use your hard-earned savings.
Business Disability Protection
If you own a business, you will need disability insurance to protect your independence, productivity and profitability. If y ou are unable to fulfil your role due to an illness or injury, these benefits will allow you to hire someone to keep the business running or provide income protection in the form of a lump sum payout for a disabled shareholder. This plan will also help to cover fixed business expenses.
Special Risk Disability Coverage
Sometimes liability coverage isn’t available through traditional insurers. Our advisor can still help you find insurance with another carrier at competitive premiums. A special risk situation could include a dangerous job or avocation, individuals working past age 65, high income/high limit needs or certain foreign travel or working ex-pats.
