National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors

Planning for the Modern Family

NAIFA Webinar
June 2015

According to the U.S. Census only 1/5 of American families today are considered traditional families – two married, opposite sex parents with one or more children under the age of 21. As non-traditional families are frequently less financially secure and are less likely to feel knowledgeable about how to reach their goals, they present a tremendous opportunity to the insurance and financial advisor. Join Kristen MacKenzie and Kirsten Waldrip as they provide you with a detailed overview of retirement planning and estate planning considerations for the broad variety of non-traditional families.
