UK Accounting Glossary
Disability insurance is an insurance policy that pays supplemental income benefits in the event that the insured person (policyholder) becomes incapable of working his or her job. The incapacity that necessitates disability insurance may be illness, accident, or another trigger; the policy spells out what constitutes a trigger. Benefits from a disability insurance policy will vary according to the coverage selected, as will the definition of disability; policyholders usually aim to receive enough benefits from their disability insurance to let them continue their standard of living and meet their usual expenses. Although Social Security provides a form of disability insurance, it is much more difficult to meet its requirements for disability than it is with a private disability insurance policy.
