I used to not pay attention at all to what insurance policies I had.  I pretty much just signed up for anything that came across my desk at work.  I was 30 years old when this happened, that’s plenty old enough to think about insurance.  But I had no kids and was unmarried, I think those things kinda make you think about insurance policies more.  I’m assuming there are other young adults out there like me, that don’t think about insurance.  Well, all I can say is THANK GOD I signed up for my work’s long-term disability plan and was paying into it.  Thank God, without it I would have been really, really, really, really, really screwed.  At the age of 29,  I couldn’t have told you beyond medical what insurance I had.  It’s kind of embarrassing to say that but it’s true.  At the age of 30 everything changed and I became disabled.  Pay attention to insurance.

  1. How true, luckily I had chosen the 65% vs. 50% coverage, price difference was something like $.64 a paycheck. I only used 1 month because I had saved sick days of 5 months over 30 years and had to go back to work at 6 months.

    • Back to work in 6 months huh? The only thing I remember about my 6 month mark was stopping the Coumadin. This meant no more regular blood tests and I could drink alcohol again.

  2. Amy – thank you for your post. We are the same age, and while I don’t like telling stories like this (I sell insurance, including disability insurance), people need to realize that life can change in an instant. With your permission, I’d like to share this. Wishing you good health in the future!
