Long Term Disability - available to doctors under 60

In 2000, UMG instituted an Individual Long Term Disability Insurance program through RBC Insurance, permitting our members to purchase Long Term Disability Insurance without having to undergo any medical underwriting.  As long as an application for Long Term Disability Insurance has not been declined in the past, our members have been able to ensure themselves of purchasing up to $7,000 of tax-free monthly benefit under RBC's Professional Series contract - An Individual contract designed specifically with the physician in mind, and one that is portable throughout the world.  (Larger monthly benefit amounts are available with medical underwriting.)

 The 2000 enrolment period exceeded all expectations with over 150 members taking advantage of this Guaranteed Insurance Program.  In addition, well over 50% of our GFT members are insured under an RBC Long Term Disability Insurance contract, which is the driving influence behind RBC reopening this generous program between now and October 30 th, 2010.The enrolment period will again be run by David Erenberg of R & D Insurance Agency Ltd. of Winnipeg, who was the independent representative who introduced the initial GSI program in 2000 and was instrumental in encouraging RBC to discount the cost of the insurance by 30%.  This discount is the largest discount available by any Insurance carrier for this brand of insurance, and David has again encouraged the underwriting department to provide the same 30% cost reduction. 

Please don't miss this opportunity to make absolutely certain that your disability insurance is up to your standards, both in monthly benefit amount and quality.  If you wish to take advantage of this Guaranteed Standard Insurance program, or have an insurance portfolio "check-up" then contact our office or David Erenberg or 284-9944.
