Most consumers believe that accidents are the primary cause of disabilities, but research shows that over 95% of disabilities are not work related; therefore workers’ compensation cannot be used.
As you can see from these statistics, it is crucial to educate consumers about the risk of income loss and how to better prepare for it.
Nearly 70% of consumers think that it’s important to start planning for a loss of income at any age – so there’s certainly an opportunity to connect with young consumers on how they intend to plan and maintain their financial independence if an illness or injury prevents them from earning an income.
