Disability Insurance: Protection When Illness or Injury Strikes

Disability Insurance: Protection When Illness or Injury Strikes

When asked to list their most valuable assets, many people would place a home, car, or 401K at the top of the list. And they’d be wrong. While those are important - even vital - pieces of living life, a person’s most valuable asset is actually the ability to make a living, working to pay their mortgage, fuel their vehicle, and fund that retirement account. If unexpected illness or injury derails those efforts, life quickly begins to unravel on all fronts. Research indicates that millions of Americans lack adequate savings to handle a medical emergency, even as healthcare costs continue to skyrocket.

Without MFA, clients risk non-renewal or a retention hike of 100% or more.
