NAIFA Stands for Financial Security

By Suzanne Carawan on 6/8/20 5:42 PM

Last week NAIFA issued a joint statement with industry association partners to denounce racial injustice. NAIFA has always advocated for financial security for all and the responses we received to our statement were overwhelmingly positive.

We are further saddened by the damage done through rioting and in no way condone these activities as a method of protest.
