Does paycheck protection make you nervous? You might not be alone.
Some brokers seem to get uneasy when it comes to bringing up paycheck protection with their clients. Maybe they don’t know what to say. Maybe they’re worried they don’t know enough about the product. Regardless of the reason, they hesitate to broach the topic. As a result, a lot of people go without paycheck protection. For some of these people, the lack of coverage could lead to major financial devastation.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 27.2% of people living in the U.S. have a disability. That’s about 85.3 million people. Although disability rates increase with age, working aged people are not immune. In fact, 15.9% of people ages 25 to 34, 19.8% of people ages 35 to 44, and 28.5% of people ages 45 to 54 have a disability.
The high odds of disability make paycheck protection an important discussion. If you’ve been afraid to bring it up with your clients, it’s time to move past this fear so you can give your clients the protection they need.
