Could you make ends meet if your paycheck went away? Sadly, 50% of Americans couldn’t meet expenses after just 1 month without a paycheck! (1)
Did you know that illness - not accidents - account for 90% of disabilities that keep people out of work? Disability insurance is NOT just for those in high-risk areas of work.
In fact, of today’s 20 year-olds, one in four will become disabled at some point in their career. (2) Another alarming statistic is that 95% of disabilities happen outside of work, which means they are NOT covered by workers’ compensation. (3)
This reality, coupled with the fact that 70% of private employers don’t offer long-term disability insurance, (4) means that individuals need to acquire their own coverage.
Disability insurance can provide an income to you and your family if you are unable to work because of illness or injury. If your family and future plans are counting on your ability to earn a paycheck, be sure to protect your loved ones and your dreams with disability insurance.
