You Need NAIFA

Tax Increases Cloud the Horizon

As an insurance and financial professional, you and your clients face unprecedented legislative and regulatory threats. Both state and federal lawmakers seek revenue to cover trillions of dollars of COVID-19 relief measures, infrastructure projects, and other programs. All of this spending will add to a colossal government debt. Who’s going to pay for all of this? It would be foolishly naïve to think lawmakers will ignore our industry and the products and services vital to the financial security of American consumers. They are looking at us, and we need to be ready. Taxation needs representation!

NAIFA Represents You!

Fortunately, as a NAIFA member, you are part of the foremost advocacy association in our industry representing agents and advisors as well as their clients and Main Street consumers. Our advocacy ensures that policymakers know our industry provides products and services vital to our nation’s economic health and to the financial security of American families and businesses. We help them understand that additional taxation of our industry and our clients' financial security solutions is not the answer.

It’s clear that members of Congress and state legislators need to hear NAIFA’s advocacy messages now more than ever. Our strength as an advocacy association comes from the involvement and active participation of our members. That includes engaging in grassroots activities, serving as a legislative contact, and contributing to IFAPAC.
