    Are you this business?

    How does Policygenius Disability Insurance work?

    Policygenius' agents know that insurance is confusing and full of jargon and unclear pricing. To make the disability insurance shopping experience simple, Policygenius built an easy-to-use tool with clear definitions and a simple interface to guide customers to the best option.

    Customers fill in basic information about their age, health, career and coverage needs, and Policygenius gives a quote range for disability insurance policies in less than five minutes. At each step of the questionnaire, Policygenius provides simple definitions for terms that customers may not understand and makes recommendations for coverage options. Policygenius presents the best quotes after scanning 17 trustworthy providers. Some recommended companies may need further information and medical exam results before locking in a specific price.

    For any customers who still have questions, Policygenius has a learning center for disability insurance that answers common questions about coverage and cost. Customers can also reach Policygenius representatives by chat, phone or email almost any time of day. They can help you understand your options and help you find the most cost-effective plan for your needs.

    Can I trust the disability insurance companies Policygenius recommends?

    Yes, all of Policygenius' partners have an excellent reputation for customer service and a long-standing history of financial stability. Policygenius only provides quotes for disability insurance from:

    • Ameritas
    • Assurity
    • Fidelity Security

    Policygenius Disability Insurance coverage options

    Although not a disability insurance provider, Policygenius' aggregator tool provides customers with coverage options. The tool connects them with the most economical providers with the right amount of coverage. Policygenius allows customers to choose coverage preferences for:

    • Waiting period: Instead of a deductible, disability insurance providers require customers to wait for a period of 30, 60, 90, 180 or 365 days before receiving coverage. The shorter the waiting period, the more expensive the plan. Policygenius generally recommends that customers select the 90-day wait period.
    • Monthly benefit: If you cannot work, you receive a monthly payout that equals a certain percentage of your pretax income. If you want a higher payout, you need to pay a higher monthly premium. Policygenius allows customers to choose up to 60%, which is the amount the company recommends.
    • Benefit period: An injury or health problem can come at any time, so Policygenius recommends choosing a plan that lasts until retirement. However, some customers want the lower premiums that come with limited-time coverage. With Policygenius, customers can choose coverage for two, five or 10 years or until retirement at 65 or 67.
    • Riders: Policygenius offers add-ons that increase the price but add further protection. These include:
      • Own occupation disability insurance covers disabled persons if their injury precludes them from working in their specific industry but allows them to work in another.
      • Residual disability policies cover disabilities that inhibit one or more of your occupational duties and result in a significant loss of income.
      • A non-cancelable insurance policy ensures that an insurer cannot cancel, increase premiums of or reduce the benefits of a policy as long as the policyholder continues to pay premiums.
      • Future purchase option allows you to increase your monthly benefit amount annually when your income increases.

    How much does Policygenius Disability Insurance cost?

    Disability insurance bought through Policygenius typically costs between $30 and $700 per month, depending on personal information and coverage needs. In general, people with high coverage and a higher likelihood of becoming disabled pay more than the average. Younger people with healthy living habits and an accident-free career have the lowest rates. In contrast, older, less healthy people with dangerous jobs have higher premiums.

    Though age, career and health are not often in your control, you can cut monthly premiums with coverage options. With long waiting periods, low monthly benefits, short benefit periods and minimal riders added, you can significantly lower premiums.

    However, cutting out too many benefits could be problematic if you don’t end up getting the coverage that you need. We recommend sticking to middle-ground benefits for generous coverage at a reasonable price.

    Excellent, straightforward service throughout the insurance process! If I had a question, I would receive an answer within 24 hours. You can work with them over the phone or email and receive the same great service! It could not have been easier as they take care of everything for you, exactly what I was looking for: someone to search multiple insurance companies and then walk me through applying at the best option for me without having to contact multiple different phone numbers or emails to get the insurance done.

      I was researching disability insurance and came across Policygenius on my Google search. It was very straightforward and clear in asking me what I was looking for and I promptly received 4 quotes from 4 different companies as well as the recommendation for which company they would recommend that had all I was looking for at the best price. I was a little slow on responding back and was continuing to do my own research on what exactly I wanted in a policy, and they were more than happy to talk to me on the phone on my schedule and clarify any questions on what I was shopping for. Ultimately ended up selecting a company and policy slightly more expensive than the one they recommended and after a brief phone call interview and few documents signed I now own an individual policy that overall took about a month of time! Overall an extremely easy process and I would have no hesitation in recommending policygenius in shopping for insurance!

      My PolicyGenius experience was a breeze. During the same time period that I got long-term disability insurance through PolicyGenius, I was getting another kind of insurance with a different broker, and by comparison, my experience with PolicyGenius was much more enjoyable! PolicyGenius is well organized, communicates status updates, was prompt with next steps, and contacted the insurance provider directly on my behalf multiple times when I had very detailed questions. I also spoke with PolicyGenius agents quite a few times over chat and phone with concerns and questions. They were fantastic at explaining details and helping me feel comfortable. They never made me feel dumb for having lots of questions. I will definitely use PolicyGenius in the future to shop for insurance.

      Policy Genius paid attention to details and got me the best deal. They backdated my application by a few weeks to put me in the age bracket where I would get lower rates, even though I dropped the ball and didn't get back to them for like forever once my application was approved. Also, the people I dealt with were good listeners and took time to find out answers to some questions I had about the policy I was considering. Thanks Policy Genius.

      Quick, fast and easy and fast updates! Loved the customer service. Always asked me if I had any questions or concerns. The rate and the breakdown of my payments was amazing and so much affordable. I would recommend Assurity to any of my friends.

      I've worked with Policy Genius team for my life insurance and now disability. They have been responsive and have guided through the process. I work fulltime and am constantly on calls and working in a team that has my full attention; having a member of the policy genius team keep in contact with updates and accessible through email, it's a wonderful experience.

      Applied for long-term disability insurance with their help. The process was seamless and they were great at following up to make sure I had all documents and information ready to go. They offered information on different insurers and recommended the best options for me. Highly recommended.
