Disability Insurance Awareness Month 2020
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 Importance of Disability Coverage in Uncertain Times
Millions of working Americans are facing financial uncertainty this year. The absence of emergency savings, rising medical costs, and an overall trend of fewer employers offering benefits to workers has created a uniquely challenging time. But now as much as ever, it’s important to understand that without some kind of income protection, more Americans could face severe financial difficulty if they need to miss work due to illness, injury or pregnancy.

In doing so, the CDA aims to help people understand that some form of income protection is a critical part of a responsible financial plan.
