Americans with impaired hearing makeless money than those with normal hearing, according to anational study conducted by the Better Hearing Institute (BHI).Conversely, the study also reveals that the amount of incomelost is reduced when those with a reduced ability to hear weara hearing aid.According to the study, a loss of hearing can reduce householdincome by nearly $23,000 annually, depending on the degreeof loss. The good news is that figure is cut by 50 percent whenhearing aids are worn. "Weve known for a long time that [loss of hearing] takes a toll on peoples quality of life and on their ability to socialize and enjoy everyday pleasures like going to a movie or visiting family during holidays," said Sergei Kochkin, Ph.D., Executive Director of BHI. "This study shows how untreatedloss also is a dollar and cents issue.”Kochkin summarizes the study’s findings by saying, "Peoplewith untreated hearing loss [who are] in the workplace maynot realize why they are being passed over for promotion. Theymistakenly believe that hiding their loss…is an effectivestrategy for getting ahead. As a result bosses may overlook the
