Dave’s DI Dispatch: Vol. 80

Chance of Disability: Me, Disabled?

You, disabled?  What are your chances?Likely much higher than you think.  You can ignore the problem, but here are the facts:

  • More than 1 in 4 of today’s millennials will become disabled during their working life.
  • Accidents are NOT generally the cause.  Back injuries, cancer, depression, heart disease as well as other illnesses cause the majority of long term leaves.

Would your clients be prepared for this eventuality?  In fact, most Americans don’t have disability insurance.  “Or enough emergency savings to last 34.6 months. THAT is the duration of the average long-term disability claim.” Read the attached Disability Statistics from the Council for Disability Awareness and help your clients avoid serious financial hardship, potential foreclosure or even bankruptcy.
