According to the National Organization on Disability, nearly one-fifth (54 million) Americans have a physical, intellectual, or sensory disability. When a disability happens to someone, their general well-being is usually affected. They may be forced to live below their standard of living that they enjoyed before the disability and have to let go of their life and career goals.
Sometimes, a spouse might have to work more than before just to keep the home together, and, in some instances, they may even have to sell their property. The Mortgage Bankers Association revealed that a good number of Americans annually lose their homes as a result of disability because it is one of the top primary drivers of delinquencies and foreclosures in the country.
The good news is that life doesn’t have to become financially miserable because of disability. With a portable disability insurance policy customized for podiatrists, you stand to maintain your standard of living even when you can no longer work because of disability.
A disability insurance policy is a financial vehicle that provides you income if you become disabled and can no longer earn a living.
