► If you have group long-term disability insurance through your employer, that’s a valuable foundation and a good start. But income from group long-term disability insurance is taxable and is sometimes not enough.
► You might not want to rely on Worker’s Compensation either. Most (95%) disabling accidents and illnesses are not work related, so Worker’s Comp doesn’t cover them.1
