Members of the Life Insurance and Annuities Committee — an arm of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) — have agreed to set up a new working group that will focus on retirement security.
The committee named Stephen Taylor, the insurance commissioner for the District of Columbia, to serve as the working group’s first chairman.
The committee members agreed unanimously to create the working group Sunday in New York, at a session at the NAIC’s summer national meeting.
Taylor has been the NAIC’s insurance commissioner since 2015. He has a bachelor’s degree from Fordham University and a law degree from Georgetown University.
He is already chair of the NAIC’s Consumer Liaison Committee and its Consumer Participation Board of Trustees. He is vice chair of the NAIC’s Life Insurance and Annuities Committee.
The Insured Retirement Institute has been asking the Life Insurance and Annuities Committee to create the working group.
