NAIFA Thanks America's Veterans

Dear NAIFA Members,
On behalf of NAIFA I would like to thank all of our nation’s veterans. Your service has guaranteed our freedom and provided your fellow Americans with stability for the present and hope for the future. In particular, I would like to send our heartfelt gratitude to NAIFA members who have served our country in the armed forces.
It’s no surprise to me when I see references to military service on the resumes of many insurance and financial advisors. NAIFA members are professionals dedicated to serving and protecting their clients. The instincts and sense of duty that lead them to look out for clients’ best interests extend naturally from their military service. They exhibit a truly admirable dedication to helping American families and small businesses navigate life’s contingencies and plan for the future.
Scott Wolf, past president of NAIFA-Minnesota and a United States Air Force veteran, explains that the military teaches skills – leadership, adaptability, resourcefulness, and discipline – that provide a strong professional base and readily transfer to a post-military career as an advisor. That’s why NAIFA has actively promoted initiatives to encourage veterans to pursue financial services careers.
For example, we have worked with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and state insurance commissioners to increase the number of states participating in a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs program that reimburses qualified veterans and their dependents for the cost of insurance licensing exams. Largely thanks to the efforts of NAIFA’s advocacy, both at the national level and by our state associations, the number of states participating in the program has grown from six at the beginning of 2017 to nearly two dozen. We will continue our work and expect additional states to come on board soon. It’s the least we can do to show our appreciation for your service.
With sincere thanks and respect, from myself and the entire NAIFA family, we hope you have a wonderful Veterans Day.
Best regards,
Kevin Mayeux,
