When you watch fireworks in July, you can almost be certain you’ll hear, “God Bless the USA,” by Lee Greenwood. Such a powerful song, and a great reminder that we have those brave men and women in our military to thank for our freedom.
Let’s face it: Men and women actively serving in the military carry larger risks than most clients. In the event of a disability, they have benefits to cover their base pay, but that’s pretty much it. The majority of disability income carriers won’t give them any additional coverage.
Peterson International is an exception. They’re able to give active military physicians and dentists additional coverage – 65 percent replacement of bonus income, housing and food allowances, and moonlighting income. They even offer partial benefits, and an “own occupation” definition.
It will never be enough to truly compensate them for their bravery and sacrifice, but the extra protection can help spread your military client’s paycheck a little further, making their family feel more secure.
Put it in Practice: Ask your active military physician and dentist clients if they have their protected their bonus income, housing and food allowances, or moonlighting income in the event of a disability. If not, Peterson International – and Ash Brokerage – can help.
