Safety doesn’t happen by accident

February 2014

“Those who fail to plan, plan to fail.” –Winston Churchill

28 years old, athletic, and outdoorsy, Stephanie felt invincible. She’d just started a new job as a physical therapist, and had the option of applying for an Aflac insurance policy, but thought, “What could happen that I would need Aflac accident insurance or Aflac short term disability insurance?”

Thinking about her active lifestyle (Stephanie enjoys snowshoeing, skiing, hiking, and kayaking), and her commute to work, she decided to apply, just in case.

Sure enough, right after her policies went into effect, Stephanie tore her ACL and meniscus while cross-country skiing. Recovery meant surgery and three months off work, but Stephanie was able to breathe a sigh of relief after calling her Aflac agent.

She was relieved to hear that her accident policy would deliver exactly what she needed, allowing her to focus on recovery.

Her advice for anyone who thinks they may be too young or it won’t happen to me: “Apply for Aflac, and thank me later.”
