Anybody know if Long term disability insurance is available in any form to pilots.

That is if being "disabled" would be considered as a loss of medical.

thanks,

DK

UPS and many airlines have it set up through the company and/or union. Not sure how it applies to corp guys or independant contractor types.

About $100/month for an RJ captain to get 48 months of 2/3 of his pay.
