Disability insurance is a necessity. Life throws unexpected curve balls. You can keep your body healthy by eating a nutritious, balances diet and staying active. Most medical conditions are caused by an unexpected illness. Having disability insurance protects you from the costly medical bills.
According to the Council for Disability Insurance:
Here are some statistics to consider from the Council for Disability Awareness:
Just over 1 in 4 of today’s 20-year-olds will become disabled before they retire.
Over 37 million Americans are classified as disabled (about 12% of the population). More than 50% of these Americans are in their working years (aged 18-64).
The average healthy 35-year-old female has a 24% chance of becoming disabled for 3 months or longer during her working career; a 38% chance that the disability would last 5 years or longer.
The average disability for a healthy 35-year-old female lasts 82 months (over 6 ½ years).
The average healthy 35-year-old male has very similar statistics as his female counterpart with the only difference being a 21% chance instead of 24% in regards to being disables 3 months or longer.
