A

a. People purchase the long term disability insurance policy in order to protect themselves from any kind of unexpected disability for a long period in future because any serious illness or injury can impact negatively on his or her ability to work. At that time, the long term disability insurance policy can help the policyholders by giving all living expenses when the policyholder will not be able to work. That type of insurance policy sometimes gives the policyholder some required tanning for the improvement of his her injury or illness.

In that situation, Annie got long term disability insurance with her job, and the long term disability insurance policy defines total disability as ‘any gainful occupation.’ That means in case of total disability, Annie will get compensation, and the compensation amount will be like any gainful occupation. Here it has been given that Annie can not use her hands to type for six months because of her injury, but the job requires her to do a lot of typing and editing on a computer. It is not total disablement. Since her long term disablement insurance policy is for total disablement and her injury is not total disablement, she is not able to receive her disability benefits from her long term disability insurance. She can get only the tanning given by her long term disability insurance provider to use voice-activated software instant of using her hands to type, but in case of a job, there is any negative effect of her disablement, she can get her disability benefits from her long term disability insurance.

b. Financial planning is an important aspect of the firm’s operations because it provides road maps for guiding, coordinating and controlling the firm’s actions to achieve its objectives. In the case of the financial planning process, cash planning and profit planning are very important. To establish a financial plan and to implement it, various elements such as a) man, b) machine, c) money, d) market, e) methods, and f) models. But every element will be valueless without man, and these elements sometimes can not perform perfectly because of their illness. As a result, the firm faces some financial losses because of giving compensation or treatment expenses by the firm.

To protect against those kinds of losses, the firm can purchase a health insurance policy. In case of personal risk consideration, a person can also purchase a health insurance policy, which will help to protect him or her at the time of illness by giving the required treatment expenses. Hence to utilize the money, market, machine, models and method, the man is essential, and for man, the health insurance policy is also essential.

That’s why this study wants to say that the health insurance policy is one of the integral parts of a financial plan.
