As an engineer, you fall into the best risk category from more insurance carriers which means you can obtain an individual disability insurance policy at the best available rates.

When requesting a quote comparison, make sure to disclose if you are a member of an association as there may be available discounts.

Some companies offer a select discount for engineers as well.

The following categories of engineers qualify for the best available risk class:

  • 1 Chemical engineering
  • 2 Civil engineering
  • 3 Electrical engineering
  • 4 Mechanical engineering
  • 5 Systems engineering
  • 6 Interdisciplinary
