How would you pay the mortgage, make the car payment, buy groceries, pay for electricity and water, or handle any of your monthly bills if your paychecks suddenly stopped?
The MAA Group Disability Income Insurance is designed to provide you with a regular monthly income when you are Totally Disabled and unable to work as the result of an injury or sickness.
Even if you have some disability insurance through your employer, it may not be enough. Many employers provide only a short-term salary continuation plan or short-term disability income coverage. This coverage can be used to supplement benefits provided by your employer plan or as primary protection.

When is the coverage effective?
You will become insured on the date specified by New York Life Insurance Company provided the first premium contribution has been paid, satisfactory evidence of insurability has been submitted, and you are actively performing the normal activities of a person in good health of like age on that date. If you are not performing your normal activities as required, coverage will not become effective until the day you are performing such normal activities provided such date is within three months of the date insurance would have been effective and you are still eligible for insurance.
Note: For Residents of NC: Any references to the performance of normal activities by a person in good health of like age are replaced by the requirement that your health status remains the same as stated on your application.
Payment of a premium contribution for insurance does not mean there is any coverage in force before the effective date specified by New York Life Insurance Company.
Note: There are instances where New York Life Insurance Company may be able to offer insurance, at the same cost, by eliminating coverage for a specific impairment or disease.
