Elimination Period (Also Known As "Waiting Period")

Next » « Previous


In order to be certain that you are disabled rather than temporarily sidelined, a common provision in disability policies is an “elimination period” – the period of time between leaving work on disability and the start of benefit payments to you.

Commonly this period is 6 months.

The longer the elimination period, the lower the premiums.
