What is it?
What is the most valuable asset you own? Think about it. The answer is, your ability to earn a living. What would happen if you became ill or injured and could no longer work?
Your earning potential is a far more valuable asset than a home or car. Disability insurance is there to replace your lost income. What’s the chance that you’ll lose the ability to work? It’s more likely to happen than you’d imagine.
Why would you need it?
Most people recognize the need for life insurance, but some don’t truly understand the need for disability insurance. The fact is, when you are disabled, your income stops – but your bills don’t. Worse, if you have family who will take care of them?
Did you know that:
- 1 in 3 people, on average, will be disabled for 90 days or more at least once before they reach age 65?
- A disability can last for months or even years?
