Think Your Income is Protected?

01-26-2016

Many people assume there is already a fallback plan to protect their income.
Here are some common ways people think they are covered:

Savings
However 36% of Americans usually live paycheck to paycheck.(1)
Would your savings be enough to cover everyday expenses for an extended period of time?

Government
However Social Security may not cover all your expenses if you become disabled. In fact, from 2003 through 2013, Social Security disability claim denials averages 59%(2). And, the average monthly benefit for disabled workers is $1,192 (3)
Could your family live on that monthly amount?

Spouse’s Income
However many families rely on two incomes to cover monthly expenses.
Could you get by with just one income?

Employer Paid Long Term Disability Insurance
However, this type of group coverage often has limited benefits and not available to you after leaving the employer.
Did you know individual coverage can be used to supplement the employer’s group coverage and you can keep it if you leave the employer?

These options may not provide enough income to cover all of your monthly needs. Adding individual disability income protection can give you peace of mind knowing you have enough to help cover your needs.
