What is Professional Athlete Disability Insurance?
If you are a professional athlete then you know how devastating an injury can be. Because your profession is largely based on your physical performance, an injury can derail your entire career. An income intended to last for several years is instantly cut off, resulting in a financial catastrophe to you and your family.
Professional Athlete Disability insurance is a specialized insurance program designed to cover an athlete and his/her career. The policy also offers coverage for teams and any endorsement deals an athlete has. Here are some of the coverages offered;
- Temporary total disability
- Permanent total disability
- Accidental death & dismemberment
- Cost of agent and mangers
- Team stop loss
- Image protection for manufacturers of products endorsed by athletes
- Contractual bonus for achieving predetermined goals
- Kidnap, ransom and extortion
- College athletes to be drafted
Please visit our Professional Athlete Disability page to learn more about these coverages and what they entail.
How Do I Qualify for Professional Athlete Disability Insurance?
Not everyone qualifies for professional athlete disability insurance. Unlike most insurance policies that any agent can sell to you, Professional Athlete Disability insurance is only offered to a select group of qualified athletes, or, as in Jadeveon Clowney’s case, select to-be professional athletes.
