American Council of Life Insurers Honors Larson
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) received the 2017 Financial Security & Life Insurance Caucuses’ Freedom & Dignity Award from the American Council of Life Insurers, alongside Senator Johnny Isakson (R-GA).
“I’d like to thank ACLI for this great honor. As we face a looming retirement crisis, it is more important than ever that Congress advance public policies that promote economic security for all Americans. As a member of the Ways & Means Committee and the Ranking Member on the Social Security Subcommittee, I look forward to working with bipartisan leaders like Senator Isakson on this critical issue. Congress must prioritize policies to help people prepare financially for retirement and to safeguard their loved ones, because nobody should have to retire into poverty or worry about leaving their loved ones with the burden of debts. I’d like to thank Governor Kempthorne and ACLI for the services and education they provide to countless Americans planning for their and their families’ financial futures,” said Larson.
The awards were presented on behalf of Americans to Protect Family Security, a partnership of America’s financial advisors, life insurance agents, and life insurance companies that is dedicated to educating policymakers about the role life insurers’ products play in the financial lives of 75 million American families. Coalition members include ACLI, Association for Advanced Life Underwriting (AALU), American Fraternal Alliance (the Alliance), GAMA International, Insured Retirement Institute (IRI), National African American Insurance Association (NAAIA), National Association for Fixed Annuities (NAFA), National Association of Independent Life Brokerage Agencies (NAILBA), National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA) and Women in Insurance & Financial Services (WIFS).
