Disability Insurance


From doctor to acute care patient to doctor again

“A quadriplegic ER physician? How is this even possible?”

Dr. Ian J. Rigby credits his family and peers for his comeback from a serious accident.

The Alberta Medical Association's Disability Insurance plan provides a monthly income if an accident or illness prevents you from working.

This income means that you can avoid using your retirement savings to take care of everyday expenses such as your mortgage, household bills, costs of your children’s education and other expenses.
