NAFA, the National Association for Fixed Annuities, is asking agents, brokers and others to help it sound the alarm and warn the public that the baby boomers are continuing to get older.
NAFA wants financial professionals to cut through the COVID-19 pandemic blahs and tell consumers about this month’s National Annuity Awareness Month outreach campaign.
The Washington-based group has organized a Coalition for Annuity Awareness to support the month, and it’s distributing an awareness content toolkit.
The toolkit includes fliers, white papers, social media content, a sample presentation, digital marketing materials, a coloring book and “We Love Annuities” stickers.
NAFA hopes to drive home the message that the financial hardship caused by COVID-19 has made planning for retirement income more important than ever.
Jean Statler, the CEO of the Alliance for Lifetime Income, said in a comment on the awareness month campaign that more Americans will turn 65 in the next three years than ever before.
