Disability Needs Analysis
  The Objective of the Disability Needs Analysis Is to Help You Answer Two Basic Questions:

How much money will you and your family need when you are disabled?
and
Where will that money come from?
 
  The Fact Is - Your Health Is Your Wealth

Based on a current monthly household income of $7,000, these are your potential earnings to age 65, assuming a 5% increase each year.

Disability Needs: Sources
 
Where Will the Money to Live on Come from if You're Disabled?


Let's consider the sources . . .

SOURCES OF MONEY THE PROBLEM
Savings If you saved 5% of your income each - six months of total disability could wipe out ten years of savings.
Borrow You might have difficulty securing a loan when you're disabled. And where will the money come from to repay the loan?
Spouse works Can one person be spouse, parent, private nurse and employee all at the same time?
Liquidate assets Can you get a fair market price when you are forced to liquidate?
Disability income plan If you qualify.
 
     
  There's Only One Logical Answer:
An Adequate amount of Disability Income Protection, if You Can Qualify.

Wouldn't You Agree?

The risk of disability is great

Consider the chances of at least one disability lasting more than 90 days before age 65.
Out of 1,000 people, the number who will be disabled before 65:
