Loss of income is one of the most significant risks facing any employee. The average American worker does not have more than $1,000.00 set aside for an emergency. Even a short-term loss due to an accident or extended illness can cause significant financial problems. Disability insurance, sometimes called paycheck protection, is an excellent way to help your employees be protected.
