Disability Facts

About two-thirds of the American workforce has no private disability insurance. This leaves them vulnerable to the financial consequences of an illness or injury that prevents them from earning an income. Without insurance, most long-term disabled American workers are forced to rely on government programs, primarily Social Security Disability Insurance.

The benefits provided by these programs are inadequate for most earners to continue to meet their financial obligations and maintain their standard of living. Even those experiencing a short term illness or injury can quickly run out of money without a backup plan for their income.

Disability insurance and other income protection insurance products can help working Americans protect themselves against this risk and alleviate the financial consequences.
