Can Your Employees Survive the Financial Crunch of an Illness?
Date:10/3/2008

STERLING, Va., Oct. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- As the population ages, a big question employers must start asking is: "Can their employees survive the financial crunch of an illness?"

In most cases the answer is no. 95% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck and now need two incomes to provide for their families. What happens when one of the spouses becomes critically ill and unable to work?

Medical Insurance

Group Life Insurance

Shot Term Disability

Long Term Disability

Dental

Vision

401K

An employee that is provided with these types of benefits was considered to be fully insured and covered. But a Harvard bankruptcy study shows that a family that makes $90,000 with 2 incomes will face bankruptcy when one spouse faces a catastrophic illness and the other needs to take time off to attend to that spouse's needs. The income of the family drops from $90,000 to $50,000 within weeks and the family can no longer pay their bills.

The solution is to realign the money spent on insurance to protect the income of the employees through supplemental income insurance.

Using the same dollar amounts employers can realign the insurance package to be re-allocated to the following:

Medical Insurance

Group Life Insurance

Short Term Disability

Long Term Disability

Supplemental Income Protection

401K

Using this model of replacing the Dental and Vision insurance with a Supplemental Income Protection, the employee is now financially ready to face a catastrophic
