Many people give little thought to the possibility of an accident—and disability—happening to them. But accidents or illnesses that force workers into disability do happen. Millions of people in the U.S. are receiving Social Security disability benefits—many of them younger than 50. Employers who want to provide information to their workforces about disabilities, their causes and prevention may find it useful to link from their intranets to the Council for Disability Awareness. The site has useful information, as well as links to resources such as the American Heart Association, the Social Security Administration and DisabilityInfo.gov.
