Each person who buys disability insurance has his or her own particular reason to get income protection with their own disability insurance policy.
And these reasons differ widely. They all buy it to protect their future income, but the reason that triggers the purchase varies widely.
Over the years, people in all walks of life have bought disability insurance but, looking at some records, I was struck by how much the reasons differ. Here’s a small sample.

Reason: The hospital provides none at the moment, but I need disability insurance before I commence doing surgeries.
