According to an ACLI-backed report by the Women's Institute for a Secure Retirement, disability income insurance is absent from many working women's benefit portfolios. The missing disability income insurance is due in part to women who leave jobs, get divorced and lose their spouse's benefits, or are unable to afford the insurance. The report, which found that 82 percent of Americans either have no long-term disability insurance coverage or have inadequate coverage, was based on a survey conducted by ACLI and the Consumer Federation of America.
