Some call it the commission that keeps on giving. For some, Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. (NYSE: PPD) associates, it might be described as "life saving" or "life savings" income.

Albert Lewis (Chicago, Illinois)
On October 2, 2009, Mr. Lewis suffered a stroke and was hospitalized for 30 days. One thing the former truck driver turned Pre-Paid Legal associate did not have to worry about during his recuperation was income for his family. During his hospital stay, Mr. Lewis received a monthly residual check that amounted to approximately 15 percent of the annual income he once received as a truck driver.
