Your Most Valuable Asset is Your Ability to Earn an Income!

Most people think they are insulated from a life-changing disability:

"It won't happen to me."

Leading causes of disability

 

Many people associate disability with accidental injuries. But, approximately 90 percent of disabilities are caused by illness rather than accidents. 5

 

A recent industry survey on the causes of disability found that fewer than 10 percent of long trem disabiy claims were caused by accidental injuries (as illustrated below). The single biggest cause is musculoskeletal problems, such as chronic back trouble.

 

The same survey found that disability claims increase with age. More than one-third of long-term disability claims in 2008 and 2009 were from people age 50-59, by far the largest percentage of any age group.
