Guard yourself and your family with disability insurance.

Share

Like life insurance, disability insurance is protection for you and your family, providing the ability to receive an income should you become disabled.

In many ways, when you are young and active, disability insurance can be more important than life insurance. Why? Consider the following:

  • According to the Social Security Administration, one out of four 20-year-olds will become disabled before they reach the age of 67.*
  • 69% of the private sector workforce has no long-term disability insurance.*

Furthermore, you may not have enough income or savings to cover monthly living expenses — utilities, house and car payments, groceries — if you are unable to work. Disability insurance provides a safety net should you find yourself in this position.

Disability policies are either short-term (up to two years) or long-term (up to age 65 or for life). The amount of disability insurance you need often depends on your current income requirements. Policies often limit coverage to a percentage of earnings or to a maximum dollar amount.
