RESEARCH SHOWS THAT MANY PEOPLE ARE UNAWARE OF THE LIKELIHOOD OF A LIFE-CHANGING DISABILITY:  THE "COUNCIL FOR DISABILITY-AWARENESS" REPORTS THAT JUST OVER ONE-IN-FOUR OF TODAY'S 20-YEAR-OLDS WILL BECOME DISABLED BEFORE THEY RETIRE.  AND, APPROXIMATELY 90-PERCENT OF THOSE DISABILITIES WILL BE THE RESULT OF ILLNESSES--NOT ACCIDENTS.  "STATE FARM" BELIEVES THAT, FOR MANY AMERICANS, THE ABILITY TO EARN A PAYCHECK IS THEIR MOST-VALUABLE ASSET.  THEREFORE, 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 A DISABILITY, 65-PERCENT OF WORKING AMERICANS SAY THAT THEY COULDN'T COVER NORMAL LIVING-EXPENSES--EVEN FOR A YEAR--IF THEIR EMPLOYMENT-INCOME WAS LOST; 38-PERCENT COULDN'T PAY THEIR BILLS FOR MORE THAN THREE MONTHS.  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.
