I received a call from a close friend who asked me to review his employer-sponsored disability program with him. In review of his firm’s group plan, we found that the benefit was 60 percent of income to a monthly maximum of $3,000 per month. This plan would cover an individual making $60,000 a year or less for a full 60 percent of their monthly income. However, my friend is an associate partner in a law firm making well over $60 thousand per year, and is severely underinsured in case of a catastrophic accident or illness.
