Yes! We are firm believers that your income is the strongest predictor of health outcomes and how long you live. Statistics also show a high likelihood of people becoming ill or injured during their working years that would prevent them from earning an income. Just take a look at some stats:
- 1 out of 3 people will be unable to work due to wellness complications at some point before retiring
- By age 42, people are 4x more likely to have an injury or suffer health complications than they are to die during their working years
- Women have a 54% chance of becoming seriously ill or injured during their working years
We recommend asking yourself if you could cope financially if you were too ill to work for an extended period. Could you pay your bills? If the answer is no, then you should consider getting an income insurance policy. Insuring your income not only guarantees your well-being, but it also ensures a bright future.
