Loan Indemnification Disability Insurance
Often times, when a bank lends money to a business, they will require the borrowers to provide disability insurance covering the payments. This is ensures the bank that, should the borrower become sick or hurt, the payments will still be made. The preferred solution would be to prescribe disability insurance that would pay the monthly loan payments and/or pay off the remainder of the loan balance.

- It is not uncommon for the lending firm to require life insurance as a condition to make the loan. Such insurance covers the consequences created by death (3%) and leaves abandoned the greatest hazard to loan default, disability (48%).
- 67% of people who suffer heart attacks, the number one killer in America, survive. Cancer survival has reached the plateau of 56%.

Consider the published observation of Selena Maranjian, who writes in The Motley Fool, “Most of us need disability insurance, yet less than 15% have it!”
- Bankers are becoming increasingly aware of the hazards to their loan repayment potential. Roughly 25% of all bankruptcies are tied to an illness or injury.
