This policy is designed to help protect those who need help covering day–to–day living expenses if they are disabled due to sickness or injury, under the care of a physician, and unable to work.

Policy Features

You have the option of choosing a combination of coverages that best meet your needs. Your selection of the options below helps determine the cost of your policy.

  • The monthly benefit amount
  • The benefit period — the length of time benefits are paid to you
  • The Elimination period — the length of time you must be disabled before benefits begin


This is a summary of what benefits may be available to you. For a more detailed understanding, meet with your State Farm agent.

Monthly Benefit Amount

This is the monthly income that you would receive if you became totally disabled as defined in the policy.

Partial Disability

If your sickness or injury prevents you from returning to work on a full-time basis after receiving benefits for a period of total disability, State Farm will continue to pay part of your monthly benefit amount.

Waiver of Premium

When you meet certain requirements, your premium for this policy is waived (paid by the Company). Ask your agent for more details.

Rehabilitation Expense

If you participate in a vocational rehabilitation program while you are disabled, State Farm pays for part, if not all, of those expenses. The level of support you receive depends on your monthly benefit amount.

Additional Purchase Option

Over time, coverage needs change. If you find you need more Disability Income coverage, this option allows you to purchase more on your fifth policy anniversary with an abbreviated application process. You'll need to meet certain requirements, so ask your agent for more details.
