You probably have life insurance to protect your loved ones from financial strain caused by your death, but how will your family be protected if you become disabled and are unable to earn an income? Disability may pose a serious risk to you and your family's financial well-being.
According to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the odds of becoming disabled are much higher than the odds of dying at any given age. Every year, 12% of adults in the U.S. suffer a long term disability. And before the age of 65, one out of seven workers will suffer a five-year or longer period of disability. If people had substantial savings, these odds would not be a problem. People could draw out of their savings, but this is usually not a possibility. More than half of U.S. adults would be unable to meet their expenses if they couldn't work for a year.
