Sam Cook, a top sales person at his company, fell off a ladder over the weekend while spring cleaning. His back is sprained, and he is expected to be out for at least eight weeks. How will Sam and his family get by if he is not working?

Disability Insurance provides supplementary income in the event of an illness or accident resulting from a covered disability that prevents an individual from working at their regular position.

If they were injured or ill and couldn’t work, half of Americans wouldn’t make it more than one month before financial difficulties set in. Are you and your family protected? Your income is critical to your financial security, and yet you rarely think about how a non-work related illness or accident puts you at risk. In fact, 95% of disabling accidents and illnesses are not work related, so Worker’s Compensation doesn’t cover them.

Having Disability Insurance can add peace of mind during distressing times. Contact Alper for information on Short- and Long-Term Disability products or for a personalized product proposal for your company.
