Education & Disability Designations

    Congratulations - We are pleased that you are interested in the one of the three designations for Disability Professionals offered by AHIP. 

    Here is the information you will need to register for the courses and complete your designation (s). 

    We have a strong partnership with AHIP, which offers courses for the DIA, and DFP, and the new IDIS and AHIP designation, the Disability Income Fellow (DIF). Our members get a 20% discount for all courses offered by AHIP, excluding the agent/broker training for the Federal Marketplace, Medicare + Fraud, Waste and Abuse Training, taxes, and shipping charges. Here are the three available DI designations and specific information about cost of each course to fulfill the requirements.

    You have to be a member of the IDIS to receive the discounts on tuition; it is one of many member benefits. If you are interested in joining the IDIS, use the JOIN button on the DI Society Website Home Page. Currently dues are $295.00 per year. Once you become a member you will be sent a coupon code with your welcome letter.

    You can still get your designation without being a member. Simply log into

    http://ahipinsuranceeducation.org/ and click on the Shopping Cart icon.

    After you click Continue Shopping, you will be prompted with

    AHIPs course/event catalog and you can choose the courses you wish

    to enroll into. Once you get to the Summary Payment screen, you can

    enter the coupon code (if you join, if not proceed without entering any

    code) into the designated field and click apply. You will then see the

    discount applied (if you join) and be able to complete your enrollment.
