May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month (DIAM)
Updated for May 2014

The Council for Disability Awareness has developed the tools and resources on this page to help advisors, employers, consumers, the media, and anyone else interested in disability, understand the need for every working American to protect his or her income.

Disability Insurance Awareness Month was created by and is organized by the nonprofit Life Happens. CDA is proud to support Life Happens, our member companies, and others in the industry in educating and inspiring the public to learn about their risk of disability and the importance of income protection planning.
