Take a moment to consider this scenario: Tomorrow, you will be unable to get out of bed and go to work.
Not because you’ve lost your job – but because you suffered from a sudden illness or accident, preventing you from being able earn the income you need to meet your monthly expenses.
Think it can’t happen to you? Men have a 31% chance of being out of work for 3 months or longer due to a serious illness or injury – women have a 40% chance.* So, your income has stopped. How long could you last before the bills start stacking up? How would you continue to pay your mortgage or rent, groceries, utilities, and other monthly expenses?
Savings may not cut it. Most people overestimate what they have to cover their expenses.
According to a LIFE Foundation survey, half of working Americans say they couldn’t make it a month before financial difficulties would set in. Yet, disabling illnesses/injuries can last for months, even years.
Consider these realities:
- 90% of long-term disabilities are a result of non-work related incident, and therefore wouldn’t qualify for state-based Workers’ Compensation programs
- 65% of those who apply for Social Security disability benefits are initially denied – while the ones who are approved receive an average monthly benefit of just $1,065, an income barely above the poverty line.
It is time to take action.
