The demanding pace of today’s workplace leaves little room for individuals whose ability to function is impacted by an illness or an injury, making long term disability insurance more important than ever before. A CEO who once would have devoted one afternoon a week to playing golf, hosted long business luncheons and enjoyed a leisurely pace of decision making in the 1950s would be out of a job in less than two minutes today.

Emergency Room Physician
Equity floor trader
Insurance Company Executives
