Important element of disability policies

Most people in California do not ever expect to become disabled. Nonetheless, there is no way to ever completely eliminate this from potentially happening. For this reason, many people do look into buying insurance policies that can provide them with some income should they unexpectedly be unable to work for extended periods of time. These are called long-term disability insurance policies and they do differ from short-term disability policies. 

Multi-count lawsuit alleges ERISA violations

When people in California elect to participate in their employer's retirement account program, they should be able to trust that their money and best interests will be properly taken care of. Every fund that falls under the jurisdiction of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act is supposed to be administered in a way that meets the rules of the program. Unfortunately, this does not always happen and innocent people can be at risk of losing valuable retirement savings or paying too much for their plans.

Is long-term disability insurance worth the expense?

Like many California residents, you may have experienced an increase in your living costs over the last few years, especially in medical expenses. Even if your employer pays for a portion of your health insurance, chances are you have seen an increase in premiums recently. In many cases, this is because employers are pushing health care and insurance costs back to their employees when possible. This also means fewer employers are offering insurance benefits such as long-term disability. However, even if you do not get long-term disability insurance in your employee benefits package, it may be worth the expense to pay for it yourself.
