When asked to list their most valuable assets most people include their home, retirement account, or car but fail to consider their ability to earn a living.
A 35 year old earning $50,000 who retires at 65 could earn $1,500,000 and that does not take into account promotions or raises.
Did you know that 1 in 4 people entering the workforce today will become disabled before they retire? Approximately 90% of all disabilities are caused by illnesses rather than injuries.
While many employers offer group disability insurance, most group plans cover only 60% of your base income for only a few years. Can you live on half a paycheck?
