Disability Insurance

Secure your income, no matter what happens.

You know it well, no one is immune to illness or injury. Having the right disability insurance to protect you can make all the difference.

You already insure your home, vehicles and other valuables, so why not protect your income? When a health problem prevents you from working and you lose your income overnight, it is important to be able to rely on disability insurance designed specifically to cover all your needs. Disability insurance provides you with a monthly indemnity that is tax-free if you personally pay for your insurance plan. This valuable payment replaces your income and pays for your expenses. Now that is peace of mind!

Did you know that you should review your insurance coverage at every major stage of your life, so that it continues to match your current and future life goals? For example, your insurance coverage could be enough to cover the mortgage on your first home, in the event of a disaster. But if you decide to have a child, or two, or three, will it be enough to support them, pay for their education, etc.? What if you lose your source of income due to illness, accident or death? You should think about that.

Q&A: How do I identify the best option?

Disability insurance plans have options that are sometimes included and sometimes optional, but the main ones are:

Waiting period: This is the waiting period that you cover at your own expense, often 90 days, before the insurer begins to indemnify you.

Payment term: The period of payments covered by the insurer, which ends at the end of the disability (or at age 70 if you opt for the engineer association group plan).

Indexation: The rate of adjustment of all coverage according to the increase in the cost of living. This option is especially important for young professionals.

Usual occupation: An option that requires the insurer to pay you the full amount if you cannot return to your main pre-disability duties, even if you’re able to practise another profession.

Annual increase options: An option of certain products that enables you to adjust your future coverage without having to undergo new medical tests. It is available during the same window each year.

Other options may also be added depending on the product and the insurer. Because all engineers have different personal and professional realities, choosing the right coverage with the right options is essential.

Sogemec Assurances’ advisors are specialists in working with professionals like you and will guide you in your choice. They have access to all the options on the market, including various individual insurance products. Moreover, they are not linked to any financial institution.

Did you know that...

The disability insurance plan sponsored by Engineers Canada can be used to supplement other disability coverage. If you do not feel adequately covered by your group insurance through your employment, you may purchase additional disability insurance equal to the difference between your group insurance and the amount provided by the Engineers Canada plan.
