Permanent Total Disability + Loss of Value
NBA Draft Protection
What happens if your NBA client is a top draft pick and suffers an injury or illness that either ends their NBA career or drops them in the draft ranking? With the draft date extended to October, that leaves the NBA hopefuls exposed to a potential injury or disability. Luckily there are insurance solutions offered through the Excess DI Markets, such as high limit disability insurance protection. This is a specialty insurance product that can help a player hedge against career-ending injury or illness and protect their future income. Additionally, a loss of value rider can be added to the player's policy to protect them from a significant drop in draft ranking due to an injury or disability.

Featured Case Study
Permanent Total Disability Policy & Loss of Value
Given the NBA draft being pushed into October, it's only fitting we share a case study of a marquee high school basketball player with NBA potential. The player was projected to be a top-five pick in the NBA draft, therefore a crippling injury while playing in college would severely, if not permanently, hurt his chances in the draft. The advisor on the case was challenged with securing an adequate amount of disability insurance to protect the player's future income and against a reduced contract value due to a significant injury or illness sustained. Check out the case study to read about the insurance solution that was developed.
