Members of Congress Providing Leadership on Financial Security

Approximately 850 insurance and financial advisors recently visited Washington, D.C., during NAIFA’s annual Congressional Conference. They met with their senators and representative and told the lawmakers about the financial risks and challenges their constituents in communities across the United States face. They explained how advisors provide clients with basic financial literacy education.
However, NAIFA members unfortunately cannot reach everyone.

In fact, two out of three Americans fail a basic financial literacy quiz covering such topics as insurance, investments, and retirement accounts. Their poor financial understanding leaves them and their families vulnerable. They lack basic skills to assess their financial risk and plan for the future.
An important group of federal lawmakers is addressing this problem as members of the bipartisan Financial Security and Life Insurance Caucus. Members of the caucus are forward-thinking on savings, risk protection, and retirement preparedness and are committed to improving the financial literacy of their constituents and all Americans.
Basic financial literacy is a life skill crucial to anyone who wants to buy a home, retire comfortably, or protect themselves and their families from life’s inevitable financial risks. Promoting it should be a priority for all of our elected leaders.
NAIFA commends and thanks the Financial Security and Life Insurance Caucus co-chairs – Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-GA), Rep. Richard Neal (D-MA), and Rep. Erik Paulsen (R-MN) – as well as the following members of the caucus:
