Spartanburg, SC (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
Michael Riffenburg joined 1,000 other professional insurance agents, advisors, brokers, consultants and employee benefit specialists from across the country in Washington, D.C., April 8-9 to meet with U.S. Senate and U.S. House members and staff as part of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors Congressional Conference.
Riffenburg, a local insurance business owner with Riffenburg Insurance Services, is a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, which sponsored the event.
Riffenburg joined NAIFA leaders, including IFAPAC, APIC and Government Relations Chairs; Association Presidents and Executives; NAIFA CEO Dr. Susan Waters; NAIFA President Rob Smith; and members of NAIFA's Board of Trustees for the event.
Congressional Conference attendees talked to their members of Congress about the importance of life insurance, annuities and employee benefits for both their clients and the U.S. economy. Life insurance products account for 20 percent of Americans' long-term savings. The life insurance industry pays out $1.5 billion each day and supports 2.5 million jobs.
“I met with Lindsay Graham and a representative of Trey Gowdy’s office,” said Riffenburg. “It's so important to make these contacts on Capitol Hill and to share with our Representatives and Senators how important the insurance and financial services that we provide to our clients are to families, our communities and our country’s economy.”
Riffenburg was among hundreds of insurance advisors who asked lawmakers to protect preferential tax incentives for life insurance, saying that life insurance can help people with personal insurance needs and can protect those who would otherwise have to rely on entitlement programs.
