Disability insurance provides a monthly income in the event you become totally disabled as the result of a covered accident or illness (including pregnancy). Since most of your expenses will continue during a time of disability, it is vitally important that you have a plan that covers those commitments.
The State Bar of Texas Member Group plan offers several disability insurance plans that will enable you to build a solution that fits your individual needs. For attorneys, these plans also include benefits for periods of partial disability. (Partial disability coverage does not include requirements that claimants demonstrate any period of total disability to qualify for benefits.)
The approval process takes approximately 30 days, depending upon additional information requested by The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential).
