May’s Power Session LIVE brings you TWO Disability Insurance Specialists! Both John and Camille have personally dealt with a disability. Hear their compelling stories first-hand, and how they approach their own clients with income protection strategies.

In this session, you will learn: 

    • How to position Disability Insurance with your clients
    • How to respond to “I can’t afford it” and other common objections
    • How to ask trust-building questions to help your clients understand the risks and take action
    • Both John and Camille’s personal stories when dealing with a disability, and what they want you to know

Some of Camille’s Trust-Builder Questions:

    • What are your dreams and goals? What keeps you up at night?
    • What do you believe is your #1 asset?
    • What’s the biggest financial issue causing your stress right now? How would your life change if we can take that off the table?
    • What would your family have to change or give up if you lost your income? Would that be acceptable to you?
    • If we could find the money for the premium, would that be helpful?
    • What do you think puts someone in the position of being unable to work? (90% of disability claims are illness)
    • Additional for business owners:
      • Tell me about your business.
      • If you were too sick or injured, how long could you continue to take money from the business?
      • Could you still make retirement contributions?
      • How long would your business be able to stay in business?
      • Where will your partners get the money to buy you out?
      • If a key employee couldn’t work, would you feel obligated to continue their pay? How long would you be able to do that? Do you have a funding vehicle to make that possible?
    • Bonus question sequence from attendee James Goodacre – thanks for sharing! These are excellent:
      • How long did you go on vacation last year? Why didn’t you go on vacation longer than two weeks or a month? If you can’t take more than 2-4 weeks off for vacation, then how would you take 6 months or 5 years off to recover from an illness or accident?
