This is a great organization which fights for injured people all over the United States. Jon Arbay the CEO is a great guy, who is an injured worker himself. I myself have RSD Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy since 2008 from a work related injury. This organization will eventually be based in every state. I was recently named the director of the state of New York. This is startup organization which main focus in to let people know the services out there for the injured worker. I am happy to be a part of this organization as a director and a advocate for disabled people everywhere, especially in NY

My name is Jon A. Arbay and I am the president & founder of NAIDW - The National Association of Injured & Disabled Workers. I hope to empower other injured workers with the knowledge in which I have acquired in the last four years of struggling through the workers' compensation system! We hope to provide short term financial assistance to injured workers who are experiencing financial difficulty. Our goal is to some day be the largest advocacy group for injured & disabled workers.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have seen the organization come together in such a way that I could never have imagined. From the day my wife and I were sitting at the dinner table and found out that once again my benefits had been canceled, we said to each other this is crazy! How can they keep doing this? Something needs to be done!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change a thing it is progressing into what we had wished it to be through the help and kindness of many different individuals!

I have worked with NAIDW since it was founded as both the webmaster and a board member. I have watched it grow from the idea of 1 injured worker into a full-fledged organization that is in one of its biggest growth periods. Each day we gain more of the exposure and experience that we need to fulfill our mission. One day soon NAIDW will be able to support injured & disabled workers in the many ways that they need it. From financial support, to moral support, and to medical and legal advice, I strongly believe that NAIDW will be on the forefront of injured worker advocacy.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching it grow into a viable organization. NAIDW is growing and becoming

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help to spread the word and get it the exposure that it deserves.
