Disability Often Keeps People Out Of Work:<br />An illness or accident will keep 1 in 5 workers out of work for at least a year before the age of 65. - Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education, November 2005<br />One in 7 workers can expect to be disabled for five years or more before retirement. - "Commissioners Disability Table, 1998," Health Insurance Association of America, the New York Times, February 2000<br />The average long-term disability absence lasts 2.5 years. - Commissioner’s Individual Disability Table A<br />
    8. 8. Disability Can Cause Financial Hardship:<br />71% of American employees live from paycheck to paycheck. - American Payroll Association, "Getting Paid in America" Survey, 2008<br />Unexpected illnesses and injuries cause 350,000 personal bankruptcies each year. - "Illness and Injury as Contributors to Bankruptcy," Health Affairs, February 2, 2005<br />Disability causes nearly 50% of all mortgage foreclosures, 2% are caused by death. - Health Affairs, The Policy Journal of the Health Sphere, 2 February 2005<br />

    13. 13. Facts on Disability<br />48% of all home foreclosures are the result of disability, while only 3% of all foreclosures results from death.<br /> Source: Housing and Home Finance Agency of the U.S. Government, 1998<br />Disability is the cause of nearly half of all home foreclosures.Source: Compton Insurance Marketing, 2002A fatal injury occurs every 5 minutes. A disabling injury occurs every 1.5 seconds.Source: Injury Facts®, 2003There is a death caused by a motor vehicle crash every 12 minutes. There is a disabling injury every 14 seconds.Source: Injury Facts®, 2003<br />
    14. 14. Facts on Disability<br />Income lost through disability is 2 times as great as auto accident losses, and 3 times as great as fire losses.Source: National Safety Council, 20031 in 5 people will be disabled for one year or more before age 65. Source: Compton Insurance Marketing, 2002Women between ages of 35 and 65 are 40% more likely than men to become disabled for 90 or more days. Source: Compton Insurance Marketing, 2002<br />
    15. 15. Facts on Disability<br />For 30-year-old males, the risk of a long-term disability is 4.1 times more likely than the risk of death. For 40-year-olds, it is 2.9 times more likely. And at age 50, it is 2.2 times more likely.Source: National Safety Council, 2003Leading contributors to disability burden are road traffic accidents, alcohol use, cardiovascular disease, major depression, and ischemic heart disease.Source: World Health Organization, 2003<br />
    16. 16. Facts on Disability<br />Nearly half of small employers (5 to 100 workers) believe that the likelihood of an employee becoming disabled is one in 50. The actual likelihood, ACLI reports, is one in three.Source: American Council of Life Insurers (ACLI), 200332% of the workforce has no savings set aside specifically for retirement.Source: Social Security Basic Facts, July 2004Only around 68% of workers have actually set aside some money for retirement, and only 58% are doing so currently.Source: Employee Benefits Research Institute and Greenwald & Associates, April 2004<br />
    17. 17. Disability -vs- Death<br />There are two threats to your ability to earn an income - Death and Disability. <br />We don't know exactly when death will occur, but we know it is inevitable. Disability, on the other hand, isn't a certainty. But what are the chances that you will be disabled before age 65?<br />1985 CIDTA, Male, 30 Day Elimination Period, Top Occupational Class, and the 1980 CSO<br />
    18. 18.

    23. 23. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Social Security Disability Payments<br />Qualifying for Social Security benefits is very difficult because the disability must prevent you from doing any kind of work - not just your usual job. The definition of disability for social security states that one must be completely disabled with no hope of recovery for a period of at least one year, or have a disability expected to end in death.<br />
    24. 24. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Worker’s Compensation<br />Workers Compensation only covers job related sickness or injury. In addition, these benefits are limited. <br />
    25. 25. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Personal Savings<br />Add up your monthly bills, then multiply by 12 and you can see how fast even substantial savings can be depleted by unexpected illness or injury. <br />If you saved just 5% of your income each year, a six-month disability would wipe out 10 years of savings, and when savings are gone your other assets would begin to dwindle as well. <br />

    27. 27. ARE YOU PREPARED WHEN DISABILITY STRIKES?<br />Disability is the cause of nearly half of all home foreclosures. Source: Compton Insurance Marketing, 2002 <br />A fatal injury occurs every 5 minutes. A disabling injury occurs every 1.5 seconds. Source: Injury Facts®, 2003 <br />Income lost through disability is 2 times as great as auto accident losses, and 3 times as great as fire losses.

    28. 28. Disability<br />You may have saved for the rainy day.<br />But have you saved enough for a hurricane?<br />
    29. 29. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Family & Friends or Bank Loan<br />After your savings depleted rapidly, would family and friends be so willing to help you out? <br />Even a bank wouldn't want to give a loan to a disabled person with no income and no guaranteed prospect of being able to repay. <br />
    30. 30. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Group Long-Term Disability Insurance<br />Availing of a disability income plan offered through your employer is a start. But workplace disability benefits often times cover only about 50% of your income. <br />Can your family survive on half of your paycheck?<br />
    31. 31. Alternative Sources of IncomeDuring Disability<br />Here are the other reasons why Group Long-Term Disability (LTD) may not be enough:<br /><ul><li>Group LTD usually covers only a portion of an employee’s compensation
    32. 32. LTD benefits are generally taxable if the employer pays the premiums
    33. 33. Many plans don’t cover bonus or incentive compensation
    34. 34. There is often a maximum monthly cap and, as a result, an employee's monthly after-tax income during a disability may drop by 50% or more!</li></li></ul><li>The Financial Impact of DisabilityAre You Prepared? <br />Disability can drain your family's savings and jeopardize your financial security. When you're disabled, you may not only lose your ability to earn a living, you could also lose your savings, your retirement funds and even your home.<br />A recent Harvard study* found that over half of all personal bankruptcies and mortgage foreclosures are due to disability. <br />If you became disabled and your income suddenly decreased or stopped, would you be able to pay your bills? Could you pay your rent or mortgage, make your car payment, or continue contributions to your 401(k) account? Most people are too busy or just don't want to think of the unthinkable. <br />* Health Affairs, the Policy Journal of the Health Sphere, February 2, 2005 <br />
    35. 35. The Financial Impact of DisabilityAre You Prepared? <br />A recent Parade Magazine study** found that most Americans are living paycheck to paycheck and have little or no money left after paying their everyday living expenses. <br />Planning ahead in case disability strikes makes good sense. Building a personal financial security plan can help you get an idea of the financial hardship disability may cause you and your family. It can also help you better prepare for the unthinkable.<br />Why not start building your plan today?<br />** Parade Magazine, April 24, 2006<br />

    38. 38. Three Ingredients in aDisability Income Policy<br />THE RULE<br />COST<br />The insurance company will always allow you to pick any two of the three ingredients as long as they reserve the right to pick the third.<br />BENEFITS<br />VERBIAGE<br />
    39. 39. Three Ingredients in aDisability Income Policy<br />FOR EXAMPLE<br />Suppose you want to spend X amount of dollars per year in premium and want to receive $5,000 per month if you become sick or injured and unable to work. <br />The two ingredients you have chosen are Cost and Benefits. <br />COST<br />BENEFITS<br />VERBIAGE<br />The Insurance Company now picks the third – Verbiage or Policy Language.<br />
    40. 40. Three Ingredients in aDisability Income Policy<br />FOR EXAMPLE<br />The company then says, “In exchange for your X dollars per year, we will pay $5,000 per month if you are unable to work because you are hit by a train at 11:35 p.m., Christmas Eve, as it crosses R.M. 620, in Austin, Texas.”<br />COST<br />VERBIAGE<br />BENEFITS<br />You Picked<br />
    41. 41. Three Ingredients in aDisability Income Policy<br />FOR EXAMPLE<br />But you say: “Wait a minute, I want $5,000 per month if I am unable to perform the substantial duties of my occupation, no matter what the cause, when or where it occurs.”<br />VERBIAGE<br />BENEFITS<br />You’ve Picked<br />The Insurance Company <br />Now Picks<br />COST<br />
    42. 42. Three Ingredients in aDisability Income Policy<br />FOR EXAMPLE<br />You’ve Picked<br />VERBIAGE<br />Consequently, they tell you “In exchange for Ten Dollars per day ($300/month), we will pay you $60,000 per year or $5,000 per month, if you are unable to perform the substantial duties of your occupation, no matter the cause, when or where it occurs.”<br />BENEFITS<br />The Insurance Company <br />Now Picks<br />COST<br />
    43. 43. What Really is Covered?<br />What the Client thinks is covered<br />What the Insurance Company thinks is covered<br />What the Policy say is covered<br />
    44. 44. Definitions of Disability<br />
    45. 45. Pure Own OccupationDefinition of Disability<br />TOTAL DISABILITY occurs if you “unable” to perform the "substantial and material duties" of your occupation or recognized specialty, due to injury or sickness. You must be under a doctor's care.” <br />Note: If while unable to do the "substantial and material duties" of your occupation or recognized specialty and you choose to work in another occupation, the Full Benefit is Paid. <br />However, If you are able to do some of the "substantial and material duties" of your occupation or recognized specialty, you are not considered totally disabled, but would receive proportionate residual disability benefits based on the percent of income lost between 20%-75%. if loss exceeds 75% the Full Benefit is payable. <br />
    46. 46. Modified Own OccupationDefinition of Disability<br />TOTAL DISABILITY occurs if due to injury or sickness, you cannot perform the main duties of your occupation, and are "not working" in any other occupation. You must be under a doctor's care." <br />Note: It is your choice to work in another occupation, if you choose not to work the full benefit is paid. <br />If you choose to go back to work, as long as your income loss is greater than 75% of your Indexed Pre-Disability Earnings, you will receive 100% of the monthly benefit. (Extended Partial/Residual Disability Rider)<br />This means you can earn up to 25% of your Indexed Pre-Disability Earnings and still receive the Full Benefit. If you are working and earning 25% or more of indexed pre-disability earnings, you will receive a proportionate benefit based on the percent of income lost between 20% and 75%. If loss exceeds 75%, the Full Benefit is payable. <br />
    47. 47. Any OccupationDefinition of Disability<br />TOTAL DISABILITY occurs if due to injury or sickness, you are Unable to perform the main duties of your occupation, and you are "unable" to work in another occupation. You must be under a doctor's care." <br />This means if you are "able to work" in another occupation you are not totally disabled! <br />REMEMBER:<br />The Opposite of Unable is Able!<br />
    48. 48. Disability Income InsuranceToo Expensive?<br />If a 40-Year Old Male, Non-Smoker<br />Buys to Age 65 Plan<br />Buys a $250,000<br />Life Insurance policy<br />Buys a $5,000 a month<br />DI Insurance policy<br />and suffers a disability<br />lasting 90 days or longer,<br />and dies,<br />His Life Insurance policy will pay $250,000<br />Death Benefit.<br />His Disability Income Insurance policy will pay up to $1,500,000 in Total Benefits<br />
    49. 49. Price –vs- Cost<br />We need to understand the difference between Price(Premium) and Cost(Premium/Potential Benefits).<br />In Disability Income Insurance, there is an inverse relationship.<br />
    50. 50. Price-vs- Cost<br />The premium structure of disability insurance is deceiving. <br />What appears on the surface to be the least expensive is actually the most expensive, and <br />The benefit period that looks to be the most expensive is actually the cheapest.<br />
    51. 51. The Exponential Curve ofDisability Income Insurance Premiums<br />ASSUMPTIONS:<br />Benefit = $5,000/Month; Male, Age 40 Class: 4A<br />Non-Smoker, 90-Day Waiting Period, No Residual & No COLA<br />Annual Benefit: $60,000<br />TWO-YEAR BENEFIT<br />Maximum Pay-Out: $120,000<br />Annual Premium: $796<br />Cost per Thousand: $6.63<br />10 YEAR BENEFIT<br />Maximum Pay-Out: $600,000<br />Annual Premium: $1,431<br />Cost per Thousand: $2.39<br />TO AGE 65<br />Maximum Pay-Out: $1,500,000<br />Annual Premium: $1,758<br />Cost per Thousand: $1.17<br />FIVE YEAR BENEFIT<br />Maximum Pay-Out: $300,000<br />Annual Premium: $1,161<br />Cost per Thousand: $3.87<br />
    52. 52. Disability Income InsurancePremium Cost per 1,000 Comparisons<br />The Two-Year Benefit Plan Costs:<br />5.80 times as much as the to Age 67 Benefit Plan<br />5.66 times as much as the to Age 65 Benefit Plan<br /> 2.78 times as much as the 10-Year Benefit Plan<br /> 1.71 times as much as the 5-Year BenefitPlan<br />The Five-Year Benefit Plan Costs:<br />3.39 times as much as the to Age 67 Benefit Plan<br />3.30 times as much as the to Age 65 Benefit Plan<br /> 1.62 times as much as the 10-Year Benefit Plan<br />The Ten-Year Benefit Plan Costs:<br />2.09 times as much as the to Age 67 Benefit Plan <br />2.03 times as much as the to Age 65 Benefit Plan<br />

    54. 54. A Thought About Value<br />Paying Too Much, Paying Too Little<br />IT IS UNWISE TO PAY TOO MUCH... BUT IT IS WORSE TO PAY TOO LITTLE.<br />“When you pay too much, you lose some money... that is all. <br />When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was supposed to do.<br />The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot. It can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidders, it is well to add something for the risk you run. And if you do that, you will have enough to pay for something better.”<br />- John Ruskin 1819-1900<br />
    55. 55. Price-vs- Cost<br />A wise person once said…<br />“When you buy the very best, you only wince once?”<br />
