Causes of long-term disability

One in three people will become disabled before they retire.

There are many circumstances which can lead to disability that are not top-of-mind when people think of long-term disability. Some of the most common causes of disability include mental health problems, heart disease and stroke, diabetes, nervous system disorders, and musculoskeletal problems such as arthritis.

While many individuals believe that injuries sustained in accidents are the leading cause of disability, this is actually incorrect. Less than 10 percent of disability cases are accident-related. Instead, many disability claims today come from individuals diagnosed with cancer, which is the fastest-growing cause.
