Need for Life Insurance

  • Help protect what is priceless
  • What would happen if an employee suddenly died?
    • Could their family live without their income?
    • Would their family be able to cover the medical expenses associated with a terminal illness?
    • Would their family be able to cover burial and funeral expenses?
slide20

Need for Disability Insurance

Beliefs about Disability:

People insure —

Their possessions

  • Houses
  • Cars

Their lives

  • Income protection for their survivors

Their health

But they don't think about insuring or protecting their income.

Disability: The Odds

The incidence and consequences of disability are greater than most people think. Consider these statistics:

  • Almost 3 in 10 of today’s 20 year olds will become disabled before reaching age 67 (Social Security Administration Fact Sheet 2009)
  • Every 90 seconds in the United States someone files for bankruptcy in the wake of a serious illness (The American Journal of Medicine, Vol 122, No 8, August 2009)
  • 27 percent of Americans say they would have difficulty supporting themselves financially immediately following a disability. Three out of four (74 percent) say they would face financial trouble within six months (The Disability Survey conducted by Kelton Research on behalf of the LIFE Foundation, April 2009)

How Disability Insurance Helps

Disability insurance provides income replacement when insured employees experience a covered illness, injury, or pregnancy. The coverage can help with bills such as mortgage or rent payments, groceries, utilities and tuition – expenses that health insurance won’t cover.

Employees

  • Safeguard lifestyle
  • Protect loved ones
  • Peace of mind

Employers

  • Retention/recruiting tool
  • Good will — when employees understand the benefit, they appreciate the “safety net”
  • Plan provisions (like Return to Work) can help your valuable employees get back to a more productive and rewarding life
