NAIFA’s Robert Miller on ‘Educating the SEC’

“Since taking a sabbatical from his New York City-based firm and beginning his one-year term as NAIFA’s president last September, Miller figures he’ll have spent the better part of 300 days away from his home in New Canaan, Conn., taking care of NAIFA business.”

The current issue of Life Insurance Selling magazine profiles Robert Miller. Click here for the full story.

In the article, Robert describes how he has worked closely with NAIFA-National to educate legislators and regulators on major policy issues and challenges that affect NAIFA members today, including the SEC and DOL’s approach toward standard of care, NAIFA members’ unique role in serving middle-market consumers, and the need to educate Congress about the tax-advantaged status of life insurance products.

Says Robert: “I think the only fair thing you can ask from your legislator is to listen to your story. We just want our members to be able to tell our story about who we are, what we do, the impact that we have on the American economy, and what role insurance plays there. Isn’t that all you can really do, is to make sure they understand who you are?”
