Your Insurance premium payments may be deductible when filing your federal income tax. As a business expense, your payments fall under IRS ruling 55-264, IRB 1955-19. Consult your tax advisor about this deduction.

Benefits begin after you have been totally disabled for 30 continuous days, and are retroactive to the first day of your disability. Your coverage ends on the November 1st that follows your 75th birthday.

You are considered totally disabled if you can't perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation due to sickness or injury. You must be under care of another licensed physician, and you can't be engaged in any other gainful occupation.

Age 70 and Older:

  • Maximum benefit duration is 12 months

Under Age 70

  • Benefits can continue for as long as 24 months for each period of disability
  • If you're continuously disabled over 24 months, but haven't reached the aggregate amount**, benefits can continue until that amount is reached or for 12 months, whichever occurs first.

**The aggregate amount is equal to your monthly benefit amount multiplied by 24 months.
