Situation and Outcome
The meeting was very productive. The planners reviewed short and long-term disability provided by the couple's employers to be certain coverage was sufficient, the definition of disability appropriate, and the carrier an A+ rated company. They stressed the importance of proper coverage to protect them if a long-term disability occurred, which may be financially devastating without ample coverage.
Results & Lessons Learned
Benchmark Strategic planners provided objective advice because they are not tied to any particular insurance company. The end result was to obtain proper coverage, help minimize annual costs wherever possible and acquire insurance through high quality companies.
The Moral of the Story: Being properly insured results in peace of mind.
