Can a Disability Derail Your Retirement?

| May 09, 2024

Most of us take for granted our ability to earn an income and save for retirement. But what if something happens to you and you can no longer work? Not only would your day-to-day expenses start piling up, but your retirement contributions would also be in jeopardy.

Many clients aren’t aware of how financially devastating a disability can be to their future. A disability can make contributing to a retirement account difficult or, even worse, may force early withdrawals to cover expenses. Without proper protections in place, a disability before retirement can really hurt your retirement plan.

While many employers offer disability insurance, employer-sponsored disability insurance often comes with some caveats. For example, you could lose coverage if you separate from your employer!
