Our industry’s agents are there for American families when they need it most, and a national pandemic is no different. This week, ACLI is proud to join National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) agents as they come together virtually for Impact week. They are discussing ways COVID-19 has impacted Main Street America, and how agents are working with American families.
Agents provide the reassurance to families that things are going to be okay financially after the loss of a loved one. They offer solutions that will protect workers’ paychecks in case of a disabling illness or injury. They help workers seeking comfort and security in retirement. They guide businesses so they can take care of and retain their employees. They also can help with business continuation plans so that a family business stays within the family.
Over the past few months, agents have even furthered their inspiring commitment to their communities by #MeetingTheMoment. They have stepped up to donate food to health care workers. They have delivered meals to families in need. They have made masks to ensure people have the protection necessary. And they have volunteered their services as financial experts. Each of these examples has an impact that goes beyond the call of duty. And each of these examples is why I am #NAIFAProud.
The strength of the partnership between ACLI and NAIFA has been vital as we advocate in the halls of Congress and state capitals to ensure policymakers know how great our industry is. I am looking forward to joining NAIFA to discuss how we can continue to partner together to serve their policyholders during these uncertain times.
