Jim Lentini: Protection for good times and bad

As the Great Recession ends, generations that never experienced the Great Depression of 1929 now see reasons for cushioning their income from the uncertainties of life, including disability, illness and accidents. It was a year of reckoning for Americans in 2009. The dependency on credit and excessive spending, which characterized much of the previous decade, has been replaced by a greater emphasis on saving money and preparing for the unexpected.
