An insurance marketing organization recently brought 300 agents and brokers to Prior Lake, Minn., to increase their interest in protecting workers’ incomes against the threat of disability.

The Plus Group/U.S. L.P., Pasadena, Calif., set up the DI Day 2008 event, which attracted speakers from many different insurers and support organizations.

Joe Sevcik, a senior vice president at Assurant Employee Benefits, Kansas City, Mo., a unit of Assurant Inc., New York, told attendees that 43% of today’s 40-year-olds will experience a disability lasting more than 90 days by age 65, but he noted that only 36% of U.S. employees have employer-sponsored disability insurance.
