Overview

Most things in your life depend dramatically on your ability to earn an income. Your home. Your everyday living expenses. Your children’s child care and educational needs. Your savings. Your hopes for retirement. Your dreams for the future.

So, if your income stops due to a disabling injury or illness, how will you pay your mortgage, your household bills, and the everyday living expenses for you and your family? Will you have to dip into your savings or other assets? And will your savings, the equity in your home, your retirement nest egg, and your other assets be able to carry you through until you’re recovered and able to return to work? And would you even want to use up your current financial resources like that, anyway?
