Planning for the unexpected is the best way to help safeguard your financial security if your regular income is interrupted due to a period of disability resulting from an accident. While medical insurance pays your doctors and hospital, it doesn’t pay you. It may be surprising to learn that nearly 3,000 Americans become disabled every hour and medical bills contributed to 62 percent of all bankruptcies in 2007 even though three quarters of American families filing for bankruptcies were insured.*
Our Income Protection Direct supplemental insurance plan is simple. It pays a monthly cash benefit directly to you for up to 12 or 24 months during times when an accidental injury results in total disability leaving you unable to work. This money can be used for anything you choose. It’s your money, your decision.
Cash Benefits Can Be Used For
Copays or Coinsurances
Rent or Mortgage
Everyday Living Expenses

Why do I need supplemental insurance from SureBridge if I already have medical insurance?
Medical insurance is very important but it is only part of the protection you need. You also need coverage to help fill financial gaps such as out-of-pocket medical expenses and other daily living expenses. Supplemental insurance pays you a cash benefit directly to you to help fill financial gaps.
Will I be paid according to the amount of time I am away from work or according to the cause of my inability to work?
You will be paid depending on the amount of time you cannot work, regardless of the injury or illness causing your absence.
