May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM). Throughout the month, ISN Network will join many other concerned stakeholders in efforts to boost awareness of the risk of disabling illness or injury, the financial risk of work disability, and how private disability income protection safeguards working Americans against these risks.
Working Americans who rely on earned income to support themselves and their families need disability income protection. Yet about twice as many Americans working in private industry lack private disability income protection as have coverage.
If you are not already fully aware of – or fully protected against – the financial risk of disabling illness or injury, take advantage of Disability Insurance Awareness Month to give yourself peace of mind and your family improved financial security:
- Make sure that you know whether you and your family have disability income protection.
- If you have disability income protection through your employer, do the math to figure out if it is enough.
- If you don’t have disability income insurance – or don’t have enough – speak with an insurance professional about acquiring coverage.
