Standard Insurance, one of the leading disability insurance companies, recently introduced the Platinum Protector Disability Insurance policy.  Platinum Protector has many of the same “bells and whistles” as Guardian’s industry-leading ProVider Plus disability policy, which until recently was completely unrivaled.

The Platinum Protector policy from Standard includes the following benefits:

  • True “own occupation” definition of disability
