Below are illustrations of disability company definitions and how they might differ!  When you request a quotation from us, we will always supply you with the best choices of carriers for your particular goals and objectives. Thus a complete set of choices will be available to you. The rule of thumb is that the more liberal the definition the higher the premium. This is because of the increased contractual liability the company has if you should become disabled.
