Group Employer-Sponsored Disability Insurance is not good enough

Group coverage is NOT True Own Specialty –  True Own Specialty Disability Insurance pays your Full Tax-Free monthly benefit should you suffer a sickness or injury that prevents you from working in your current specialty without limiting you from the ability to continue to work in another occupation.  Employer-Sponsored Long Term Disability provides your full coverage if only due to a sickness or injury you are prevented from performing working in your current specialty provided you are not otherwise engaged or gainfully employed in any other occupation for wage or profit.

Coverage is not guaranteed – although you may have a group policy today that doesn’t mean you will have a group policy tomorrow.  Your Employer-Sponsored plan can be canceled, changed, or modified leaving you and your income vulnerable.  

Coverage may not be portable If you change jobs or elect to go into private practice you may not have the choice to bring your policy with you.  If you do have the choice the premiums are expensive and not guaranteed.
