Think you’re Superman? Think again.

Posted by Dairel Denton Posted on Jan 20 2015

It’s easy to get in the mindset that you will never get too sick to work or you will never not be able to get up each morning and go to work.  Let’s face it - with technology and the ability to work from anywhere, I can see where you would start to think you’re invincible.  It’s hard not to. 

But I want you to ask yourself some hard questions AND I want you to be honest with yourself.  Do you really think it’s wise to live this way?  Do you not want to protect your family?  Don’t you think you should plan to have income coming in if something actually does happen to you? 

If you think you should then you’re right, my friend. 

Disability insurance can be the glue that holds everything together, financially.  Let’s be honest – we hope we never need disability insurance, but we will be really happy to have it if we do need it. 

I’d like to share some key points about disability insurance and why this is something you must consider having in your financial journey.

1) In 2012 an estimated 12% of the United States reported a disability, that’s over 37 million people.  More than 50% of those disabled Americans are between the ages of 18-64. 

2) Nearly nine in ten workers believe they should plan in case an income limiting disability should occur. 
3) Only 50% of all workers in America have actually planned for the possibility of a disability happening to them.


Still think your Superman?  It’s time to start planning and preparing to protect yourself and your family’s future.  Give us a call at 573-686-3053 to schedule your meeting.
