New Survey Finds Overwhelming Majority of Working Americans Not Financially Prepared for Disability, Would Rely on Sources Other than Themselves for Support
Date:5/12/2008

, on average, Social Security pays out just

over $1,000 a month, just barely above the poverty line.

-- 13% say they would turn to Workers' Compensation. Workers'

Compensation only covers you if you get injured, ill or die as a

result of your job and only 10 percent of disabilities actually occur

on the job. Even if the disability occurs at work, Workers'

Compensation payments are sometimes quite modest, and some applicants

won't qualify for any benefits at all. Having disability coverage --

through work or on your own -- is the best way to ensure that you'll

be financially protected in the event you become disabled outside of

the job.

-- 11% would rely on disability insurance they had purchased on their

own. The risks of suffering a disability are real - nearly 1 out of

every 3 workers will suffer a disability that keeps them out of work

for 90 days or longer at some point in their career. Despite the

statistics, there are only 6 million individual disability insurance

policies in force for a U.S. workforce of 146.3 million. Just as you

would insure your home, car or other valuable asset, it's important to

insure your paycheck, as well.

Making sure you have sufficient disability income protection could be a daunting task if you had to do it on your own. Fortunately, there are resources available that can help.

You'll also find an online calculator that allows you to determine for yourself about how much disability insurance you need. Just go to http://www.lifehappens.org/di
