What does disability mean?
The term "occupational disability" is defined as if the employee can no longer pursue his profession before entering the pension age for health reasons.
Diseases that may lead to this condition include, for example, mental illness. Cardiac and back problems, cancer or severe restrictions of the movement apparatus can also be counted.
One in four must give up their profession prematurely
Even serious accidents leading to permanent disability can be responsible for this. According to statistics, it happens to every fourth person that he has to give up his profession for one of these reasons prematurely.
As the state can hardly expect sufficient financial support, so that the unemployed can suffer enormous losses, a disability insurance should be available.
Why a hedge can be important
The insurance is especially important for all those who, according to the 01. January 1961 are born. Since the reform of the pension system, they have not been able to secure adequate coverage by statutory pension insurance.
The statutory incapacity for work or the incapacity for work which resulted in the pension benefits were replaced by the reduction in earning capacity. This has resulted in a considerable supply gap, so that private security can be regarded as extremely important.
Disability insurance is of limited use
The full disability pension is paid only by the employee, who is able to pursue a profession less than three hours a day. The amount is around 34 percent of the last gross income.
Anyone who is able to work for three to six hours must be content with about 17 per cent, who can work for more than six hours, does not receive any benefits. It may also be required that the employee pursue a profession which is completely unrelated to the sector.
Private occupational disability insurance
If a private security exists, this immediately provides benefits for a professional and proven restriction and this in the agreed pension level. It is not necessary to pursue another profession which has nothing in common with what has been learned.
However, it is important to make a comparison before the conclusion, in order to get the best offer for the most reasonable contribution. Above all, attention should be paid to the fact that the payment of the pension is selected in such a way that no financial losses have to be made.
Attention abstract reference
In addition, the term should be chosen until the retirement age. In addition, care must be taken to ensure that abstract referral is in principle excluded.
This is for the reason that benefits can not be refused on the grounds that the insured person can carry out another profession despite his limitations.
