NAIFA Take 3 Video: Our Advocacy at Work

This week, NAIFA’s ability to educate and influence Congress was on display when the Senate passed H.J. 66, a bill that assures state-sponsored plans will not have a free pass from providing protections afforded all other retirement savers. President Trump will sign it into law shortly.

NAIFA sent letters to all 535 lawmakers and urged members to contact their senators to support the bill. NAIFA key contacts also made personal phone calls to top congressional leaders, while NAIFA representatives met with members of Congress and their staff on the issue.

This is a significant victory, but there’s more work to do. As your CEO, I will join industry partners to impress on the Department of Labor’s new Secretary, Alex Acosta, that the DOL’s fiduciary rule must be delayed in its entirety.  Retirement readiness is a top priority, and we will continue to use all NAIFA’s resources to ensure retirement savers have access and choices in planning for their futures.

Watch the latest installment of NAIFA Take 3, and share this video with your colleagues.

  1. Government-run retirement plans need to comply with consumer protections.
  2. NAIFA's strong grassroots influences policymakers.
  3. Invite a colleague to join NAIFA, so they can help us improve the retirement rules.
NAIFA’s grassroots is one of our greatest strengths, and we’re happy to work in coordination with top industry trades to make a difference. Thank you for your involvement!

Best regards,

Kevin M. Mayeux, CAE
Chief Executive Officer
