Between the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the recently passed SECURE Act, there are many changes that may impact your or your client’s existing life insurance policy.

Slashed interest rates and the stock market plunge have further exacerbated an already deteriorating situation whereby the client’s non-guaranteed life insurance coverage is expiring prematurely as a result of client neglect & inaction caused by their not understanding their current life insurance portfolio.

I am honored to have been asked to conduct an upcoming webinar for the New York State Bar Association entitled ” The Impact of COVID-19 on Client’s Life Insurance & the SECURE Act. ” The webinar addresses the challenges and considerations an attorney or other advisor should consider as it relates to life insurance, COVID-19, and new legislative changes. The webinar will take place on May 12, from 12:00PM to 1:00PM, and participants can earn 1.0 CLE.
