It’s an old tradition. Loved ones gather around the Thanksgiving table, ready to serve the turkey, stuffing, and mashed potatoes. But first, they take a few moments to share with each other the things they are most thankful for.
Surveys indicate, not surprisingly, that Americans are most likely to be thankful for three things: their loved ones, good health, and financial wellbeing. Perhaps that is why Thanksgiving, of all our holidays, is the one that most reminds me of NAIFA. Our members have dedicated their careers to helping clients protect their families, maintain their health, and attain their financial goals.
When your clients are thankful for their families, you offer them life insurance to alleviate the financial burden should they unexpectedly lose a source of income. You offer college savings plans to ensure bright futures for their children. And you offer retirement products, as well as disability and long-term-care policies, so they won’t create future financial burdens for the ones they love.
When they are thankful for their health, you offer health plans that provide them the best opportunity to remain well and receive medical treatment to return them to health should they become sick or injured. When they are thankful for their financial wellbeing, you offer planning and investments so they can continue to prosper and grow their wealth.
We at NAIFA have much to be thankful for this holiday season. We serve the best, most dedicated insurance and financial professionals in the world. The work you do ensures that American families and small businesses manage life’s inevitable risks, achieve their goals, and reach heights of prosperity that would be unattainable without your efforts. It is an honor for NAIFA to serve you and help you succeed.
On behalf of myself, the NAIFA Board of Trustees and every member of the NAIFA staff, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
