Did you know that 60% of adult Americans have no emergency savings? Or that 40% of households with children under 18 would have trouble meeting financial obligations if a primary breadwinner passed away?

Most of us feel infallible, like nothing really bad could ever happen. But if it did? We would want to know that someone has our back. That’s why insurance is so important—specifically, life and disability insurance. In this free, online course offered by LearnVest and Guardian, learn:

  • Where you can get life and disability insurance
  • Who needs life insurance, and how much you should have
  • The best type of disability insurance for you

Because if something bad were to happen, you’ll want to be prepared.
