20/20 Money Episode # 42 – The ABC’s and 123’s of Disability Insurance

August 26, 2019

On this episode of 20/20 Money, it’s all about the ABC’s and 123’s of disability insurance for optometrists. We’ll discuss what disability insurance is, the different kinds of disability insurance an OD can get, how much of a benefit you can get, and what riders you should make sure are on your policy (including the most important rider of all). I’ll also share with you some of the carriers that we’ve seen write good policies for optometrists and talk you through the underwriting process and how to find a good agent to help you shop for a policy. We wrap up the show talking about some of the mistakes and shortfalls I’ve seen on optometrist’s policies so that you don’t make the same mistakes.
