Without you earning a paycheck, how long would you be able to make the mortgage or rent payment, buy groceries, or pay credit card bills without feeling the pinch? If you’re like most, it wouldn’t be long at all: Half of working Americans couldn’t make it a month before financial difficulties would set in, and almost one in four would have problems immediately.
That’s where disability insurance comes in. Think of it as insuring yourself a paycheck. It ensures that if you are unable to work because of illness or injury, they will continue to receive an income and make ends meet until you are able to return to work. – Derived from Lifehappens.org
