A study conducted by RBC Insurance revealed that half of working Canadians have no disability coverage, either through workplace benefits or personal insurance. Fifty per cent of those surveyed would like to be able to take time off if they became disabled, but feel they can’t afford to do so. And 67% say they would face serious financial implications if a disability impeded their ability to work for three months.

Canadians remain under-insured, despite knowing that they could potentially be exposed to financial risk. Why is this happening?

This webinar that aired on Tuesday, September 24, 2019 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET, is the second of a four-part webinar series presented by RBC Insurance.

Caitlin Bowie explained to advisors how to handle common objections by clients, who often underestimate the risk of a disability and aren’t fully aware of the “what,” “why” and “how” of disability insurance.
