How Long Could You Live Without A Paycheck?
SCRIPT: In the Know, I'm Brian Osuch. An illness or injury can put you out of work for weeks and set you back multiple paychecks. The Prudential Insurance Company of America's Jake Biscoglio says true financial wellness includes protecting yourself financially from unexpected risks that render you unable to work.
CUT: (Biscoglio) A 2014 American Payroll Association survey found 66% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Is that you? Now, lets say something unexpected happens and you need a herniated disk repaired, the average amount of time out of work is about six weeks, that's three paychecks. Can your financial house withstand that loss?
SCRIPT: May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month, time to think about how you would manage if you could not work to earn a paycheck.
CUT: (Biscoglio) A disability can happen to anyone. The Prudential Income Protection Plan is a short term and long term disability insurance coverage that helps ensure you get a paycheck while you're off the job because of an injury or illness.
