Set for Life Insurance has discounts available for physicians, medical residents, dental students, fellows and employees of Harvard University.
When shopping for disability insurance, it is important to look at all of your options available. In addition for looking for the right coverage for your needs, it is important to see if you have discounts available to you. This can save you a significant amount of premium over the course of your career.
Rates are based on several factors including age, gender and occupational class . Female rates tend to be approximately 40% more expensive than male rates. Therefore, if women are able to obtain unisex discounts, they will save significantly. Men will also receive a discount, but the change won’t be as dramatic as their rates start out at a lower premium than their women counterparts.
