Imagine this… One day, you become disabled and you can’t go to work. It could happen to you! In fact last year millions of families found themselves in this situation according to the Council for Disability Awareness. In fact 80% of Americans who do not have short-term disability insurance will file bankruptcy after 90 days of no income. How would you pay the mortgage? Buy groceries? Make your car payment? And pay all the other bills that won’t go away just because your paycheck is gone?
Did you know 3 out of 10 Americans will enter the work force today and become disabled before retirement age? Did you know that nearly 90% of disabilities are not work related which means you will not qualify for worker’s compensation benefits? Lastly 100 million Americans are not protected by private disability insurance! That is where Aflac’s short-term disability insurance can make a difference. The difference that means you will still have a source of income that will help take care of your bills while you are taking care of yourself.
