How many of us plan for disability in our lives?
« on: December 17, 2018, 07:20:10 AM »
Disability is a subject you many read about in the newspaper, but not think of as something that might actually happen to you, but your chances of becoming disabled are probably greater than you realize.  Studies show that just over 1 in 4 of today's 20 year-olds will become disabled before reaching age 67.
While we spend a great deal of time working to succeed in our jobs and careers, few of us think about ensuring that we have a safety net to fall back on should we or a family member become disabled.  We need to be more aware that this is threat to long term financial well being.  Do you have a financial plan for disability your life?

This is an are where Social Security becomes valuable to each of us.  (Citation from Social Security:  https://www.ssa.gov/planners/disability/index.html
