The Insurance Science of Disability

The Insurance Science of Disability

If you are young and healthy, you probably have given little thought to the notion of disability insurance. Most employees in this age-range may even scoff it off as negligible in view of their youth.

“Disability insurance? “Compensation if I become unable to work?” they may exclaim. “Why, this is coverage that I do not really need.”

If you would speak to the professionals – those in the trenches when it comes to related liability and insurance claims, you would hear a very different story. In fact, the discussion would lead you to be ever so grateful that you are covered!

Deep down, every person understands that any blessing we have in life should never be taken for granted. Car accidents, business mishaps, home devastation – all these things happen. Likewise no one can guarantee that sickness or illness will not disrupt a life once devoid of it – regardless of the current station one finds oneself in.

Need more on the matter? Here are the sobering facts:

• 1 in 4 young people in the age bracket of twenty years suffer from a long-term illness or injury.

• Each year, there are over 700,000 paid workers and employees that are awarded social security disability insurance benefits.

• In general, 1 in every 15 employees files a short-term disability claim per year.

• Almost fifty percent of all Americans do not have the money to fund a four hundred dollar medical emergency.

• Breaking or fracturing a leg may cause a three month or longer employment disruption.

• On the average, a long term disability insurance claim lasts longer than two years and six months.

• A work related physical disability can be the result of varying factors, including chronic headaches, ongoing backaches, cancer related treatments, treatment, the birth of a new baby, loss of eyesight, heart disease, mental and emotional illness and stokes as well as other maladies and situations.

• The average income of newly graduating higher education students is approximately $1,101. Weigh that with the average long-term disability maximum claim of $125,450 of loss of income.

With the current available data about young working people, a disability that renders someone incapable of working would have devastating effects without the proper insurance coverage.

• Close to 70 percent of all US citizens do not have even a thousand dollars in savings.
