Can I Get Disability Insurance for a Pregnancy?

Disability insurance policies offered by Affiliated Financial Specialists, Inc. are not contracts that the insurance company will use to cover people seeking protection for their current pregnancy. Most disability insurance companies do not protect current pregnancies, in other words, if you are pregnant at the time you apply for a personal disability insurance policy, the insurance company will either issue the policy with an exclusion for the current pregnancy, or they may even decline the application all together if the pregnancy is too far along.

Our agency likes to use pregnancy as a wake-up call for people when it comes to disability income insurance. We find couples desperately seeking to obtain coverage from every company under the sun for the current pregnancy all the time, the bottom line is the quality contracts won't cover it because it is a pre-existing condition. We believe your best option is to obtain a comprehensive disability insurance policy with the exclusion rider for the current pregnancy, and after you have delivered the child come back to the insurance company and request they review the policy to remove the exclusion. This way you have one of the most comprehensive disability insurance policies offered on the market today, and if the insurance company does remove the exclusion rider, your next pregnancy could be protected.

Bottom Line for Currently Pregnant Women

Unfortunately, the bottom line is that there is no way this disability insurance company will offer a policy to you with protection for your current pregnancy.
