Disability Income Needs

To protect your finances should you become disabled, you may need an estimated $4,000 per month in additional income. One potential source of this income is disability insurance.
Disability insurance policies generally aim to replace 50% to 70% of your gross income. This chart illustrates the monthly benefit you might receive based on your estimated gross income of $5,000.



    Assumptions

  • This calculator does not take into account the effect of income taxes.
  • Although disability insurance policies generally pay benefits equal to 50% to 70% of your gross income, benefits may be limited by other factors. For example, they may be reduced by amounts received from other sources (such as Social Security), and a monthly maximum benefit may apply.
  • Keep in mind that disability benefits are payable for a limited period of time (called the benefit period) outlined in the policy. A waiting period (called the elimination period) may also apply. This is the amount of time you must wait after the onset of a disability before benefits become payable.
