Most families have their home and vehicles, as well as their farm or business, insured. Many individuals even carry life insurance. We do this to make sure that when unexpected things happen we are protected. What if the unexpected is a disabling injury preventing a spouse from returning to work for an extended period of time? Would you have money saved to cover such an event? Could you get by on one income for a year? What about 5 years? Illness or accidents will keep 1 in 5 workers out of work for at least a year before the age of 65. People need protection if they are unable to work due to a disability. A disability income policy can provide protection to an individual while he or she is disabled from injury or an illness. This type of policy can provide peace of mind just as a homeowners or auto policy would. Many of us would not even consider driving to the grocery store in an uninsured car; however, we take for granted our ability to go to work every day and do so without protection. Your earning power is one of your greatest assets; don’t leave it unprotected. Call our office to discuss a disability income policy with one of our agents today.
