The National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) is encouraging members to use NAIFA members to use the new NAIFA Advocacy Action Center to get involved with shaping financial services policy.

The center is on the web here.

Members can use the center to learn about federal and state issues, contribute to a political action committee, and sign up to serve as grassroots contacts for legislators, according to a recent NAIFA blog entry.

Kevin Mayeux, NAIFA’s chief executive officer, said in a statement in the blog entry that many NAIFA members see building political influence as an important part of their jobs.

“They promote the best interests of consumers with members of Congress and state legislators, just as they do when helping clients achieve financial security and prosperity,” Mayeux said.

A “take action” section on the center’s website gives members links they can use to support the SECURE Act bill and the Middle Class Health Benefits Tax Repeal Act of 2019 bill. The section also includes a link members can use to ask their senators and representatives to join the congressional Retirement Security Caucus.
