What is a disability? Accidents or injuries, illness, or maternity that limit you from performing the material and substantial duties of your regular occupation for the period specified in your certificate, and then any occupation for which you are reasonably suited for by education, training, or experience. Why do you need longterm disability? “What are the odds a disability could happen to me?” Three out of ten people between the ages of 35 and 65 will be disabled at some time during their career for three months or longer. (1) Nearly two-thirds of disabling injuries occur off the job and are therefore not covered by worker’s compensation. (2)

What is your biggest asset? Your ability to earn a paycheck! If your paycheck were to suddenly stop due to disability, would any of these options provide a viable solution? Health Benefits – Health insurance covers only a portion of your medical bills, but it does not provide any income protection if you are unable to work and earn a living. Personal Savings – If you saved 10% of your annual income each year, one year of total disability would totally wipe out your personal savings! Social Security Disability Benefits – Approximately 69% of every 1,000 Social Security disability benefits claimants are rejected. (3)

Why should you buy long-term disability insurance? If a disability were to prevent you from earning an income, how will you pay your bills, mortgage, your car payments, and other expenses? There is a lot that depends on your paycheck – that’s why disability insurance is important to consider. Twenty-eight percent of US consumers live paycheck to paycheck; not many have savings or other disposable income they can rely on. (4) What can Voluntary Long Term Disability coverage do for you? Provide a tax-free income Offered guaranteed issue Offer partial disability benefits if you return to work part-time Offer Social Security disability benefits
