What is The Difference Between an Accident Policy and Disability Insurance?

2011 April 25

Accident policies are typically known as “indemnity plans,” which simply pay a fixed amount of benefit if you become injured by an accidental event. They have limited value and are a poor substitute for disability insurance.
