Marcus has group long term disability coverage through his employer, but he never thought much about the amount of income it replaces. Recently, after he accepted a promotion to a position that includes incentive pay, he found out that his group disability insurance only covers 60% of his base pay and none of his incentive bonus. And since his employer-paid group benefits are taxable, his coverage is even less.
