|Disability Income Protection|
Disability Income Protection Insurance is a contract established between you and an insurance company that helps preserve your lifestyle by providing income if you can’t work for a sustained period because of illness or injury.
Why It's Important
For most people, the biggest asset they will ever own is the ability to work and earn an income. If income were to stop because one could not work, this would create a financial hardship for most individuals, families or law firms.
Protecting your income should be a fundamental strategy for everyone who works.
Most people think injury or accident is the leading cause of disability, but almost 90 percent of disabilities are caused by illness.* More than 25 percent of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before they retire.**
