Income Protection Through Every Stage of Life
Disability Insurance Awareness Month 2016
Last updated: April 25, 2016

May is Disability Insurance Awareness Month. Each year, The Council for Disability Awareness joins forces with others in the insurance industry to raise awareness about the importance of income protection. The tools and resources on this page are designed to help advisors, employers, consumers, the media, and anyone else interested in understanding the need for every working American to protect his or her income.

This year, The CDA campaign theme is "Income Protection Through Every Stage of Life." We will take a different focus each week-beginning with millennials and working up through the generations to those nearing retirement.
