    i would recommend buying some supplemental DI, i think the ups employee plan only covers 67% of your lost income if you are disabled, and that pays out after an elimination period.
    it scares me to see people in a physical line of work who arent adequately covered.

    I have Combined. I am covered for sickness/accident/disability 24/7 for about $100/month.
  3. In California you have your doctor verify you are disabled and you are paid a very good percentage of your normal pay while you are out. Why would you need to buy any thing more than that?

    Because we all don't live in California?

    Ive had Aflac for 4 years, everything is all good and paid for if I get hurt. Don't understand why more idiots who have more than 10 years left don't get disability insurance, beats the hell out of me. Nothing in life is guaranteed especially your health with this crazyasczz job.
