A persons ability to earn an income allows him or her to purchase a home, drive a car, fund a childs education, save for retirement and accumulate wealth. Without the ability to earn an income, our lives are put on hold and our finances are likely to falter. Owning a long term disability insurance policy may ensure that your income will continue, even if an injury or illness prevents you from working.
The Value of Long Term Disability Insurance
Most professionals understand the importance of protecting their income, but few fully grasp how valuable their income really is. Consider the following examples:
- A 35year old professional earning $100,000 will earn $3,000,000 throughout a career that extends to age 65 provided that he/she does not receive any increase in income.
- A 35year old professional earning $250,000 will earn $7,500,000 throughout a career that extends to age 65, provided that he/she does not receive any increase in income.
