Please inquire now, as we often meet physicians once on Active Duty status and this reduces the coverage allowed at application.

If you are active duty and already secured your disability insurance plan, you can suspend your payments; hence suspending your coverage too.
Carriers will require written notice from the client asking to suspend their disability insurance contract and a copy of their military orders calling them to active duty.
Suspension of Insurance:
You may suspend this Policy if the Insured enters active military service of any country or international authority or is in a reserve component of the armed forces of the United States, including the National Guard. To request a suspension of this Policy, You must send Us Your Written Request providing information that Insured is eligible for the suspension. If the Insured is eligible We will suspend this Policy from the date of receipt of Your Written Request for suspension (or a later date if requested by You) and refund to the premium payor any unearned premiums for the period of suspension. This suspension does not apply to active duty for training which is scheduled to last 90 days or less.
During any period of suspension:
this Policy will not be In Force:
no Monthly Benefits, Waiver of Premium, or any other Policy benefit will be available;
