Disabilities in the 21st Century

It’s 2017, and technology has become part of our everyday lives. We’re plugged in at work, at home and on the go. These advances have made our lives easier, but it’s a double-edged sword because the same technology we rely on to help us be productive and connected can also cause us harm.

Unfortunately, many people don’t realize the risks, or the statistics around the possibility of experiencing a disabling injury or illness. Take this opportunity to educate your clients and their employees on the importance of having additional financial protection in case a disabling illness or injury should occur.

As an industry leader, and #1 disability carrier, Cigna is focused on improving the health well-being and sense of security of our customers. That’s why Cigna's disability program focuses first and foremost on prevention. But if a disabling illness or injury does occur, we help connect employees with our expert health coaches and vocational resources who work together to help get customers back on their feet – and on the job – faster.
