Why do you need disability cover?
You are your greatest asset and if you become disabled you will not only lose your income but also all future income. This can make a huge impact on your living standards because you will not be able to pay the debt on your home and car. By protecting your health with one of the types of disability cover, you will thus ensure your potential income loss!
Statistics that you can keep in mind are:
- About 10% of the world’s population lives with some disability (UN: website)
- In South Africa, only 25 out of every 10,000 people who get disabled can be rehabilitated to work again
