One of the core principles of financial planning is protecting against loss. Before you ever start investing in the market to try to grow your assets, it is important to make sure that you have something in place to protect what you already have. These are the things that you cannot afford to lose in the case of an accident or injury that would result in you not being able to work and provide for your family or even worse. If an accident took you away from your family altogether, how would they make it financially without you?
The Social Security Administration estimates that when someone enters the workforce, they will have a 25% chance of being disabled before they reach full retirement age, and it is not just from accidents and injuries. Other studies, such as the Annual Statistical Report on the Social Security Disability Insurance Program, show that 75% or more of all disability claims are related to illness.
If you have questions about whether you have adequate life and disability insurance coverage, give us a call to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our professionals either in person or virtually. We will sit down with you to help determine what you need and how to make sure that you are protecting your income, your family, and your peace of mind.
