    Facts about...Buying Disability Insurance

    in Entertainment

    The host of Lets Chat Radio has been a licensed insurance benefits counselor for 6 years working in the life and health insurance markets and today will discuss disablilty insurance.  Get your pencil and paper ready !

    Nearly one-third of U.S. workers will become disabled at some point in their career before reaching retirement, according to a 2009 estimate from the Social Security Administration. Yet the federal agency says that 70% of employees aren't covered by private long-term disability insurance. Social Security disability benefits are available for certain disabled workers, but the average payout is only 40% of a person's income and the allowance rate for initial claims can be as low as 30% in some areas of the U.S. 

    Individual disability insurance is truly a basic concept. It is an insurance product designed to replace anywhere from 45-60% of your gross income on a tax-free basis should a sickness or illness prevent you from earning an income in your occupation. Your most important asset is your ability to bring home a paycheck, DI makes sure that regardless of any adverse changes to your health, you are able to provide for yourself and your family. Every disability insurance policy from every insurance company is very different, this is not a product to simply shop for the most competitive rate. To buy the cheapest disability insurance policy on the market is to throw money away. The odds of getting paid a monthly benefit under a cheap contract may be significantly lower than receiving benefits from a quality contract. The goal of this show is to provide you with information to make an educated decision on your own.      I will provide you with information regarding the major features of a disability insurance policy so that you may better understand how to read a disability insurance policy.

    Why Aspies don't have a disability

    in Education

    The DSM manual puts it out there that the Autism Spectrum is a disablity.   Some would consider Autism as a "Social disability."  As someone who lives with AS herself I see things in a different light.
