Many told a survey team that they thought the only way to get disability coverage was through an employer.
LIMRA is participating in Disability Insurance Awareness Month 2020 by releasing a new disability awareness fact sheet — and a batch of data from a survey it conducted with Life Happens.
Life Happens, the Council for Disability Awareness and other organizations organize the annual awareness month campaigns to try to remind Americans that the ability to earn a paycheck is the most valuable asset that most of them have.
The LIMRA Disability Insurance Awareness Month fact sheet is available here.
LIMRA and Life Happens have joined to field the 2020 Insurance Barometer Study survey.
At one point, the participants were asked how they’d cope, financially, with a loss of the ability to work due to illness or injury.
