What does Dave Ramsey say about supplemental insurance?

ANSWER: Some supplemental insurance is good, but most of it is not. I don't believe in cancer insurance because your health insurance covers that. I don't believe in short-term disability insurance. You shouldn't pay for that; you should have an emergency fund built up to cover short-term disability.

Just so, what type of insurance does Dave Ramsey recommend?

If you've listened to Dave Ramsey for more than five minutes, you've probably heard him say term life is the only life insurance policy you should get. We recommend you purchase a term life insurance policy for 10–12 times your annual income. That way, your income will be replaced if something happens to you.

Also, does Dave Ramsey recommend disability insurance? ANSWER: Yes, you should have long-term disability and carry it your entire life. You should carry all you can get – which is usually 60% - 70% of your income. Don't buy disability insurance pre-tax. If you get it through work, pre-tax, then your disability income is taxable, and you don't want that.

Besides, is employer supplemental life insurance worth it?

You'll get portable coverage that you know will last for the entire life insurance term. For older adults, or those who are less healthy, the employer-based coverage is likely to be the cheapest option around. But, still, if a limited supplemental life insurance policy is pretty expensive, it may not be worth it.

Does Dave Ramsey recommend Aflac?

QUESTION: Michelle on Twitter wants to know what Dave thinks about supplemental insurance like Aflac. ANSWER: Some supplemental insurance is good, but most of it is not. You should do long-term disability insurance. You should not do accidental death because you are not double-dead if you die by accident.
