Preparing In Case Of Disability: Long Term

If You Are Not Working And Are Part Of An Economic Unit

Next » « Previous


If you are not working and are part of an economic unit (either a marriage or other family type relationship based on caring), there may be no need for planning if you have health insurance coverage through your spouse or partner as well as economic resources.

Even if you have health insurance, think about how solid your relationship is. The more solid, the less need to secure health insurance on your own.

If you don't have health insurance, or if it isn't good enough for your needs (see Evaluating a Health Insurance Policy), get health insurance on your own. To learn about health insurance available in your state, see: offsite link

If you choose to go to work to obtain health insurance:  Ideally, look for an employer that also provides long term disability and life insurance and contributes to a retirement fund.  To learn about seeking work, click here.
