Many people receive variable income because they’re small business owners, salespersons, freelancers, or receive performance-based commissions or bonuses. If your income is variable on a day-to-day, week-to-week, or month-to-month basis, you may be concerned about the potential impact on your disability insurance benefits. Insurers are always looking to minimize their costs, and if you have a variable income, they may try to underestimate your income to lower your benefits. As the insurance policyholder, however, you are entitled…
