What You Need To Know About Protecting Yourself From Financial Disaster!
Are you protecting yourself from financial disaster? It has come to my attention, that a lot of agents and advisors are not taking this economy seriously! I have reviewed the forums and Facebook groups to see what agents are thinking about right now. I see a lot of different opinions… some serious… some not. While everyone is entitled to their own opinion, here is the problem!
Most families were hit very hard first by the pandemic, and now by inflation, high gas prices, and a recession.
No matter which end of the spectrum you are on. The fact is that people need your help more than ever. Are you prepared to be the HERO they need?
In our most recent client newsletter, Alex wrote this article to summarize why your prospects need a HERO right now…
Protecting Yourself from Financial Disaster
Unfortunately, protecting yourself from disaster is a priority that will never go away. It has become increasingly more important each year because there are more things than ever before to protect yourself from. The lack of preparation by families across the globe has made this abundantly clear. While there are many things to protect yourself from, today we are going to be focusing on financial protection. More specifically, we will talk about how to protect yourself and your family from the loss of Income.
There is no doubt that someone’s ability to generate an income is their biggest asset. The three biggest culprits that will take away someone’s ability to produce an income: are Death, disability, and job loss. According to a survey by bankruptcy companies, 78% of bankruptcies are caused by a loss of income. In my opinion, that is 78% much too high, since there are simple things that families can do to prevent this from happening. Death is hard to predict and has terrible consequences both financially and emotionally. Many people don’t like to plan for this as it is a sad topic, and no one wants to think about themselves dying. However, people do die!
The second one is Disability (short and long term). Most people ignore this because they think that they will be protected from worker’s compensation or SS Disability. But that is just not the case. Worker’s compensation only protects you if you are hurt on the job. Social Security Disability can be hard to qualify for and could take 2 years or more before it kicks in.
The last major cause of income loss is job loss. This is one that we don’t talk about much since it rarely happens. But today people do lose their jobs for a variety of reasons… from being laid off, caring care for loved ones, and company collapsing. Companies collapsing usually only happen in severe economic conditions such as the Great Depression, the Great Recession of 2008, and the 2020s with the Corona Virus.
However, there are 3 great tools you can use to protect yourself from financial disaster…
The first tool is disability insurance (DI). There are two types of disability insurance (long-term and short-term). This insurance is low-cost and is used to replace your income for a preset amount of time if you cannot perform the functions of your job. It is important to note that you do not have to be permanently disabled to qualify. The other good news is that it doesn’t matter what caused your inability to work (so long as it wasn’t criminal activity). If you are disabled and can’t do your job the insurance will payout.
The second thing you can use to protect yourself is an emergency fund. I recommend 3-6 months of income. Too many people resort to using credit cards which just creates a snowballing debt problem that becomes hard to get out of. However, if you had access to a fund of money that you can use to take care of all your expenses for 3-6 months, it makes you so much more flexible.
The last one is my favorite tool, Life insurance. Life insurance is the “Swiss Army Knife” of financial vehicles. It accomplishes so many great things. Life insurance when set up correctly can replace an income from a loved one if they pass. It can provide an emergency fund to draw from. And can provide extra funds for serious illnesses. Additionally, if you don’t have to use it, (or you repay what you use) you can use it to fund a college education, or generate a tax-free income in retirement!
