Do you have a plan to pay the bills if you suddenly become disabled? At American Fidelity we are celebrating Disability Insurance Awareness Month by teaching our Colleagues how this product can help protect them and our Customers. AFA automatically provides our Colleagues with disability insurance as part of our standard benefits, and this helps bring me great peace of mind. American Fidelity’s founders, C.W. and C.B. Cameron based our Company on a fundamental belief: The most important asset anyone has is their ability to work and earn a living. We want to help workers protect that asset by offering disability insurance. Together, our Association Worksite Division (AWD) and American Fidelity Educational Services (AFES) write more business for disability insurance than any other single product line. “More than a quarter of today's 20 year-olds will suffer an income-interrupting disability at some point during their working careers,” said Barry Lundquist, president of the Council for Disability Awareness. If your paycheck suddenly vanished due to an illness or injury that prevented you from working, how long would you be able to buy groceries or pay your monthly bills before feeling the pinch? Probably not very long. That‘s why disability insurance is such an important part of a solid financial plan.
