Disability insurance producers have set up a new group for all participants in the disability industry.
The new International DI Society will serve insurance company executives, educators and regulators as well as producers, according to Ron Cohen, a Barker, Texas, DI specialist.
Programs will include both group disability and individual disability content, he adds.
Cohen says he spent 8 months working on message boards at DisabilityInsuranceForums.com, a site managed by Steve Crawford, to set up the society.
The group is incorporated in Nevada, and W. Harold Petersen, the Valencia, Calif., disability insurance luminary, is the president, Cohen says.
Some of the other organizers include Bill Barrett of Capistrano Beach, Calif., and Caryn Montague of North Miami Beach, Fla.
