Guardian’s ProVider Plus individual disability insurance policy is the most comprehensive product with the best contract terms in the industry. Disability insurance is different from other types of insurance in that whether a claim is paid is solely based on the definitions and terms within the contract. Life insurance is simple – you are either dead or not dead and a claim is paid if you die and isn’t paid when you live. Disability claims are more complex and you truly get what you pay for when it comes to disability insurance.
