Group long-term disability insurance*

Insure yourself and your career. Many insurers only consider you disabled if you cannot work in any capacity. A.G.I.A, Inc. believes that a doctor of optometry should start receiving disability benefits if they are unable to maintain their current occupation. This own occupation benefit could be the critical difference if an accident ever occurred.


Group term life insurance*
