My father became disabled when I was in middle school. He, like you, wanted to be prepared in the event that he became disabled and could not support his family. He purchased a long-term disability policy through USF&G. I remember the monthly trips he made to his doctor, asking for the appropriate long-term disability forms to be completed service benefits would continue. I remember my mother’s fear that the long-term disability benefits will be suspended.
