We have the coverage you didn’t even know your firm needed
Why The Westport Group?
Less than a decade ago, if a highly compensated professional realized their standard group disability insurance coverage would not be enough for their family to live on if anything should happen—well, there was absolutely nothing they could do about it.
The Westport Group changed all that.
The first firm in the U.S. to realize the disability exposure of highly compensated corporate executives and professionals and to create a viable solution, The Westport Group looked outside the U.S. insurance markets—to England’s insurance giant Lloyd’s of London—to provide approved, guaranteed-issue disability insurance that, together with your firm’s insurance plan, provides highly compensated executives and employees up to 60% of their monthly income—that’s up to $250,000 per month!
But we didn’t stop there.
Collaborating with Actuaries and Claims experts, The Westport Group developed a mathematical model, based on a study by the Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), that researched the experiences of highly compensated professionals who had filed disability insurance claims. Through that study, we learned that many professionals were being significantly over-charged for their insurance needs. As a result of that study, The Westport Group—with its Lloyd’s of London product, the Executive Income Assurance Plan® (EIAP®)—became the first insurer in the United States to offer a 10-year, monthly benefit with an optional lump-sum disability feature… the longest monthly benefit period Lloyd’s of London had ever written at that time.
What makes us different?
