May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month
Disability insurance is the most misunderstood of all major insurances. That’s why Life Happens created and coordinates Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM) every May. They also provide 120+ resources. Get the resources here .
The Council for Disability Awareness has created fact sheets and social media content available for you to use. Don't start from scratch when they already have what you need. Access the resources here.
The CDAs consumer microsite, Realty Checkup , is designed to encourage people to consider the reality of missing work as well as to identify the steps to insure themselves against this possibility. Take some time to become familiar with the content and share it with your clients.
