London, United Kingdom (3rd May, 2013) – Expatriate Healthcare, specialist providers of international healthcare plans for expatriates living and working abroad, recently introduced Long Term Disability cover to their product line.
The launch of this new type of cover comes in light of recent advice released by the Council for Disability Awareness, which suggests that over 1 in 4 of today’s 20 year-olds will become disabled before they retire.
As part of their continued efforts to offer policies which are appropriate to all of their customers’ circumstances, Expatriate Healthcare’s new Long Term Disability (LTD) cover will entitle the policyholder to a monthly benefit until they reach the retirement age of 65.
The amount of benefit applied to the policyholder is based on a percentage of salary selected by the customer, and can be escalated to account for inflation. This provides a replacement income for a working lifetime, securing the long term future of any individual and their family.
Lee Gerry, the Group Underwriting Manager of Expatriate Healthcare, commented: “This is a great addition to our existing product line. It allows expatiates the freedom and security to really concentrate on their time overseas with the peace of mind that their salaries will be met if they can no longer work due to disability.”
David Bond, Director at Expatriate Healthcare, agrees, adding: “We understand that our role is to help support people whilst they are away from home, whether permanently or on a secondment; and products like the Long Term Disability benefit provide the excellent level of protection that our customers are looking for.”
