Researchers at the Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education, Arlington, Va., have published that finding in a summary of results from a recent survey of 1,007 U.S. residents ages 18 and older.

LIFE commissioned the survey in connection with Disability Insurance Awareness Month, which starts today.
