I am so excited to share with you that May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month.
Life Happens created and coordinates the Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM) campaign every May because disability insurance can be said to be the most misunderstood of all major insurances.
Do you talk to your clients about what would happen if suddenly, due to an illness or injury, they are unable to work and what would they do? The ability to earn a living is important to everyone and the most important “asset.” How do they to protect their income if they become unable to work in the event of an injury or illness.
Here is an easy way to help them to understand.
Have them think of it as insurance for your paycheck. Then go ahead educate them on Disability insurance how it a percentage of their income if an illness or injury prevents you from working and earning a living. And don't be shy to, just say “you insure your home, car and phone, so why wouldn’t you also protect what pays for all those things—your paycheck.”
I challenge you, each client you speak with in the month of May tell them about Disability Insurance
