    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Life Insurance Disability Waiver

    I'm not sure how many of us are on Social Security Disability (or any kind of disability for that matter), but I just found out that some insurance companies will pay your life insurance premium while you are on disability. Some of them even go back to your date of diagnosis, not your date of approval for disability. As much as I hated to do it, I knew it was time to re-evaluate my policy because of all of my medical bills, etc. I contacted my representative and he told me that "yes" I would qualify to have my life insurance premiums paid! YAY! I had no idea that anything like that even existed! My husband and I are meeting with this man next week to go over a few things.....I will post any other info that I think may be helpful to any of you. Every penny counts!

    Hugs to all
    Mindy
