Group Long-Term Disability Plus Insurance
Unlike other disability plans, our Long-Term Disability Plus plan has the added protection of the "Own Occupation" clause (member only) up to age 65. This allows you to collect benefits if you’re unable to perform your specific law specialty, even if you’re able to work in another occupation or specialty. It also automatically includes Presumptive Disability, which waives any waiting period in certain situations.
Key features and options:
- Available1 for ABA lawyer members and spouses/domestic partners under age 65 residing in the U.S. and Puerto Rico and who are working full-time.
- Coverage amounts through $12,000 a month for members and through $5,000 a month for spouses/domestic partners.
- Choice of waiting periods helps reduce premiums.
- Your coverage is renewable as long as you remain an ABA member, stay employed full-time, you are under age 75.
- "Own Occupation" (for members only) allows you to collect benefits if you’re unable to perform your specific specialty of law up to age 65, even if you’re able to work in another occupation or specialty.

- Law School Loan Payment option rider will pay up to $200,000 in eligible law school student loans. Members must be under age 40 to apply and must be permanently disabled prior to age 45.
