RESEARCH SHOWS THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF A LIFE-CHANGING DISABILITY.  THE "COUNCIL FOR DISABILITY AWARENESS" REPORTS THAT ONE-IN-THREE WORKERS WILL BECOME DISABLED FOR THREE MONTHS OR MORE, DUE TO ILLNESS OR INJURY.  AND, 90-PERCENT OF THOSE DISABILITIES WILL BE THE RESULT OF ILLNESSES--NOT ACCIDENTS.  ACCORDING TO "STATE FARM", FOR MANY AMERICANS, THE ABILITY TO EARN A PAYCHECK IS THEIR MOST-VALUABLE ASSET--AND ANYONE WHO WORKS NEEDS TO HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE, TO HELP PROTECT THEIR PAYCHECK.  IF THEY DON'T, THEY COULD BE PUTTING THEIR FINANCIAL-FUTURE AT RISK.  WHEN FACED WITH THE THOUGHT OF A DISABILITY, 62-PERCENT OF A RECENT SURVEY'S RESPONDENTS WEREN'T CONFIDENT THAT THEIR FAMILY WOULD HAVE ENOUGH MONEY TO MAINTAIN THEIR CURRENT LIFESTYLE--AND NEARLY ONE-THIRD DIDN'T FEEL THAT THEY COULD EVEN COVER BASIC EXPENSES, IF THEY BECAME DISABLED.  TO LEARN MORE ABOUT HOW YOU CAN HELP PROTECT YOUR PAYCHECK--AND YOUR FAMILY'S FINANCIAL-FUTURE--SEE A "STATE FARM"-AGENT OR VISIT "STATE-FARM"-DOT-COM TODAY.
