Even before I started researching insurance for my fabulous & frugal journey, I loved the Aflac insurance commercials. My all time favorite is the one with the duck in speech therapy—it gets me giggling every time.
Advertising geniuses somehow have me laughing about disability insurance. And even better, when I stopped giggling, I realized how much I needed disability insurance. But, their advertising wasn’t sure-fire…I shopped around for my disability insurance.
There is only so much emergency savings I can put aside. God-forbid, I might need a chunk of cash to take care of me while I recover.
Monthly, I pay tiny amounts towards my disability insurance, so if needed I can receive cash to replace a portion of the income I am missing out on while I recover.
As always, insurance gives me assurance than my finances won’t shrink when life happens.
