Buy-sell agreements found in partnerships, sole proprietorships, and close corporations. Either the business entity or the surviving members of the business agree to buy out the interest of a disabled member according to a predetermined formula funded through insurance. Disability buy-out insurance can be more important to a business than death buy-out insurance because the chances of becoming disabled are 7 to 10 times greater than death, depending on the age of the individual. The mechanisms available for the disability buy-out are the same as those found under business life and health insurance.
