According to the Social Security Administration, a 20-year-old has a 25% chance of becoming disabled before reaching age 67.(1)

Loss of income for such a duration has the potential to cause significant financial hardship.

Disability coverage may be available through your employer, who may pay all or a portion of the cost for your coverage.
