May is Disability Insurance Awareness month, a time designated for us to reflect upon the important role Disability Insurance plays for our Customers, Colleagues and Company.
Did you know that according to the Council for Disability Awareness, more than 25 percent of American workers will at some point miss three months or more of work due to an injury or disability? Did you also know that more than three fourths of workers claim they could not pay their bills for more than a year without income?
Statistics like these can be alarming but are a good reminder about the importance disability insurance plays in protecting your income.
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. As part of this belief, our Colleagues automatically receive disability insurance as part of our standard benefits package.
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.
