Most people recognize the need for life insurance, but many don't understand the need for disability insurance.  When you are disabled because of an injury, your income stops - but your bills don't.  An average of 1 in 3 people will be disabled for 90 days or more at least once before they reach age 65 and can last for months or even years.
