The Life and Health Insurance Foundation for Education is gearing up to make May a new Disability Insurance Awareness Month.
LIFE, Arlington, Va., says it will be trying to focus more attention on protecting paychecks, rather than on negative thoughts about disabling illnesses and injuries.
“We need to make getting disability insurance as reflexive an act as getting car insurance,” LIFE President Marvin Feldman says. “If you have a car, if you have a job, you need disability insurance. It’s just that simple.”
