Here are the statistics:

  • Their disability interferes with the kind and amount of work they're able to do.

  • A third of all people now aged 35 and older will be unable to work for at least six months before reaching age 65 due to an illness or injury.

  • It is estimated that half of all foreclosures in Canada are due to disability.

  • There are three main types of disability insurance policies designed to insure different personal and corporate needs.

Types of Disability Insurance:

    1. Personal Disability Insurance

    2. Disability Buy Sell Insurance

    3. Business Overhead Insurance 

The need for disability insurance is obvious, unfortunately many business owners and the self-employed are uninsured. Business owners and the self-employed cannot afford not having disability insurance. Even a 40 year old with a modest income of $40,000 per year will earn will earn $1,080,000 over their working years, this does not take into account earnings increases due to inflation. Unless you have a printing press to replace your income you need insurance.


Disability insurance is a highly specialized field that requires guidance and advice of a knowledgeable insurance broker. There are only a few companies offering individual disability insurance in Canada. Shopping for disability insurance will not result in savings due to lack of competition.

The premiums for disability insurance can be high. One of the methods of lowering your premium is to adjust the waiting period of the policy.
