Business Overhead Expense Disability
As a practitioner (doctor, lawyer, engineer, and similar) if you become disabled the expenses continue to roll in. Staff salaries need to be paid even if you’re not earning income. Rent, utilities, all the maintenance bills don’t stop when you do.
As a result, should you become disabled not only do you lose your income, but you can actually end up paying for these expenses out of pocket or business reserves.
In the event of a long-term disability of a practitioner business-owner, a business overhead expense policy will pay many of your fixed and ongoing business expenses such as rent, utilities, and staff. This allows you to either resolve the disability and come back to work and start earning again, or gives you sufficient breathing space to sell your practice. The alternative is to drain your personal or business savings while trying to sell your practice under time pressure.
How It Works
A business overhead expense policy treats the practitioner as the insured. Coverage amount is based upon adding up eligible monthly expenses. In the event of a long term disability of the insured, the policy will pay a monthly amount to cover the eligible expenses. Durations range generally from 1 to 2 years.
