A disability can strip you of your ability to make a living for you and your family. It is important to understand your rights while dealing with a disability. Many are unable to support themselves without consistent income while disabled. Long-term disability insurance can provide you with income for an extended period to help you to continue to provide for yourself and your family. If you are currently disabled and collecting short term disability insurance, you should be prepared after the general period of three to six months is over. Depending on the policy, most long-term disability insurance plans pay about 60 percent of your yearly salary. While policies vary on the number of years you can remain under long-term disability, generally benefits last until you are able to return to work or your full retirement age.
