What Steps Should I Take Today?

Many of my clients aren’t aware of how financially devastating a disability can be to their future. Oftentimes people who become disabled will stop making contributions into retirement plans or, even worse, make withdrawals early to cover expenses. Without proper protections in place, a disability before retirement can deplete your accumulated retirement savings. Being properly prepared can help guarantee that your retirement accounts continue to be fed so that the impact of your loss of income doesnt extend well into your retirement years.

Many employers offer disability insurance, but knowing whether or not it’ll be enough requires you to look into the type of plan, the fine print and compare the amount of coverage to all of your expenses. This should include your retirement account contributions as well. If your current disability insurance doesnt cover retirement, there are options we can explore.

While disability insurance is important for everyone to consider, if you’re predicting a sudden change to your job situation or have any health issues looming, its something we should discuss right away.
