    May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month

    Disability Insurance Awareness Month 2019

    May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM) and every year The Council for Disability Awareness joins forces with others in the insurance industry to raise awareness about the importance of income protection.

    The State of Disability Coverage in America

    Millions of working Americans are facing a growing crisis: a lack of adequate disability insurance coverage.  Today, the absence of emergency savings, rising medical costs, and an overall trend of fewer employers offering benefits to workers has created a critical blind spot for many American workers and their families.  Without some kind of income protection, more Americans are experiencing severe financial difficulty if they need to miss work due to illness, injury or pregnancy.
