Imagine how difficult it would be if you unexpectedly couldn’t work. Could you afford to take a few weeks off? What about a few months? Or a year? 63% of Americans would find it difficult to meet their current financial obligations—groceries, utilities, mortgage/rent—if their next paycheck was delayed for just one week.* Group Disability Insurance from New York Life pays a portion of your salary if you must take time off work for a limited period due to disability.
