News & Announcements

On May 22, 2018, NAIFA leaders voted to modernize the association’s national bylaws with a new structure that will create a more powerful and collective voice in insurance and financial services. This event marked a watershed moment in NAIFA’s history, with a New NAIFA that will benefit you, companies, the industry and consumers.


NAIFA is now poised to transform into a thoroughly modern association, with state and large local chapters relationships across the states. The new structure will simplify operations while improving the membership experience for ALL NAIFA members, regardless of their state and local chapter affiliation. Local activity will continue to thrive and engage members through programs coordinated by the local chapter or state association. The result will be more local activity with less local bureaucracy and a more positive and rewarding membership experience.

New York Life Signs on to the NAIFA Capital 50 Fund for State Advocacy 

FALLS CHURCH, Va. -- New York Life Insurance Company has agreed to provide a supporting gift to the NAIFA Capital 50 Fund, an initiative launched by the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors to strengthen advocacy by the life insurance industry at the state level. 

“Part of being there when our policyholders need us most is advocating for sound public policy,” said George Nichols III, Senior Vice President in New York Life’s Office of Governmental Affairs.  “There are no better public policy advocates for our industry and clients than our agents, whose job it is to advise and serve the constituents of elected officials.  By supporting the NAIFA Fund, we can help more life insurance agents educate elected officials about how our industry provides financial security to millions of Americans. ”
