Individual Disability Insurance for

Software Developers & Engineers


Why Software Developers Need Personal Income Protection


If you move on - perhaps a small firm, a startup, or work on a contractor basis - you may lose your group coverage.  A personal policy gives you the security of guaranteed coverage as your career evolves.

Mental work is what you do.  Individual policies can afford to offer more guarantees and features than group policies - including full mental coverage - because you have to qualify to get one.

Variable Pay

Due to the type and variability of compensation, developers need income protection that can cover all of their compensation - not just base pay - and can be ratcheted up during peak years to lock in the gains.
