Why take advantage of it?
Disability insurance is a means of protecting a student-athlete’s future earning potential while enrolled as a collegiate student-athlete.
Typically, you must be a high draft projection to be eligible for disability insurance. Olympic sport athletes need to be a premiere standout in their sport.
What does it cost?
It is permissible for a student-athlete to secure a loan for disability insurance. A general rule for premium costs is about $1 to $2 for every thousand dollars.
What does the insurance cover?
The insurance will in most cases be full extensive coverage for any injury that happens to the student-athlete on or off the field. It is important to note as for all the general rules there may be some exclusions due to previous injuries.
