Summer Fun
Boat Boats – Jet Skis – Motor Cycles MotorcycleSummer is coming (really), this means Boats & Jet Skis will be launched and Motor Cycles will come out of the garage.

Many times we are asked to add a new boat, jet ski or motor cycle to a clients Auto or Home policy and have to explain that this cannot be done.

These items require a separate policy specific to that item. We will be happy discuss coverage and cost with you. Contact us at 302-654-8823 or email us at allen.

May is Disability Awareness Month
If you were disabled and unable to work as a result of an accident or illness, what would you and your family do for income?Disability income insurance, which complements health insurance, can replace lost income. Forty-three percent of all people age 40 will have a long-term (lasting 90 days or more) disability event by age 65.

There are three basic ways to replace income:

  1. Employer-paid disability insurance:
    Many employers provide some short-term sick leave. Larger employers often provide long-term disability coverage, typically with benefits of up to 60 percent of salary lasting from two years to age 65, and in some cases extended for life.
  2. Social Security disability benefits:
    This can be paid to workers whose disability is expected to last at least 12 months and is so severe that no gainful employment can be performed.
  3. Individual disability income insurance policies:
    Other limited replacement income is available for workers under some circumstances from workers compensation (if the injury or illness is job-related), auto insurance (if disability results from an auto accident) and the Department of Veterans Affairs.For most workers, even those with some employer-paid coverage, an individual disability income policy is the best way to ensure adequate income in the event of disability. When you buy a private disability income policy, you can expect to replace from 50% to 70% of income. Insurers won’t replace all your income because they want you to have an incentive to return to work. However, when you pay the premiums yourself, disability benefits are not taxed. (Benefits from employer-paid policies are subject to income tax.)
