Your veterinary degree is one of your most valuable assets. Without it, how would you earn income to afford daily living expenses like groceries, gas, or utilities? Throw medical bills into the mix, and you may find yourself in a tough financial situation. Insuring your income provides more than a monetary safety net; it helps keep your dreams intact.
Disability income insurance through the AVMA LIFE Trust provides support for you and your family in the event a covered accident or illness keeps you from returning to your profession. You can use this benefit toward:
"It's the best coverage I've found. I've kept it for over 30 years."
—Dr. Richard L. Runyon, Eastridge Animal Center
"I ended up developing a chronic illness that forced me to retire early from my veterinary practice. I believe that having disability income [insurance] helped keep me alive and from falling into poverty. The AVMA Trust representatives treated me with respect and support [and] as part of their family."
—Ken Gorczyca, DVM
