Protecting Your Retirement Assets
A disability impacts more than just your paycheck. If you became disabled and no longer received a salary, you may not be able to:
- Contribute to your retirement plan
- Receive an employer match on those contributions (if available)
- Contribute to social security
DI Retirement Security from Principal Life Insurance Company helps you continue saving for retirement in the event of a disability.
- If you become too sick or hurt to work, your Individual Disability Income insurance policy would begin paying monthly benefits to you (after the elimination period has been satisfied) to help pay daily living expenses.
- At the same time, your DI Retirement Security benefits are invested on your behalf into an irrevocable trust – helping you continue saving for retirement.
- At age 65 or 67, you receive payments from the trust – helping you enjoy your retirement. These benefits are paid until the funds are depleted.

- Any remaining assets go to estate if you die while receiving benefits.
DI Retirement Security is issued as non-cancelable, guaranteed renewable, individual disability income insurance policy. It is not a pension or retirement program or a substitute for such a program. DI Retirement Security is not available for government employees, individuals with Group LTD coverage that includes a "retirement supplement" or anyone who is over insured based on Principal Life's current Issue and Participation guidelines. It may not be available or the benefit may be reduced for certain occupations if there is existing DI coverage with lifetime benefits. Additional underwriting guidelines may apply. DI Retirement Security is not available in California.
