About the Definitive Disability Conference (DDC)

On May 16-17, 2013, Barger & Wolen will host the inaugural Definitive Disability Conference in Boston, an industry conference designed for in-house counsel and experienced claim personnel. The conference will be chaired by Martin Rosen, who heads Barger & Wolen’s Disability, Life and Health practice group.

The primary objectives for the Definitive Disability Conference are: (1) to create a conference focused solely on disability insurance issues; (2) to design the conference with the experienced disability insurance professional in mind; (3) to limit the conference to industry-related personnel and their counsel; and (4) to ensure that the conference provides great value for the price.

To accomplish these goals, Marty has secured speakers from the following companies, law firms and other entities:

  • Ameritas
  • Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America
  • Cigna
  • Colonial Life Insurance Company
  • CSC Financial Services Group
  • Disability Management Services, Inc.
  • First Mediation Corporation
  • Funk & Bolton, P.A.
