Urges All Americans to Save for Their Retirement Every Payday

Manasquan, NJ – LA Senator Dan “Blade” Morrish, NCOIL President, applauded the recognition of this week as National Retirement Planning Week:

“As someone who is closer to retirement than the beginning of my career, I recognize that sound retirement planning contributes significantly to the quality of life for Americans. As NCOIL President, I applaud National Retirement Planning Week and encourage all Americans to plan and save appropriately so their golden years are just that.”

NCOIL routinely discusses retirement issues. At the 2018 NCOIL Summer Meeting in July the Life Insurance & Financial Planning Committee heard a presentation on industry trends in retirement planning, and at the 2018 NCOIL Annual Meeting in December, the same Committee heard a presentation on the impact of President Trump’s Executive Order on Strengthening Retirement Security in America.

Morrish concluded “Because of sound planning, my wife and I can travel, visit our children and grandchildren and enjoy this important time in our lives.”

NCOIL is a national legislative organization with the nation’s 50 states as members, represented principally by
legislators serving on their states’ insurance and financial institutions committees. NCOIL writes Model Laws in
insurance and financial services, works to preserve the State jurisdiction over insurance as established by the
McCarran-Ferguson Act seventy four years ago, and to serve as an educational forum for public policymakers
and interested parties. Founded in 1969, NCOIL works to assert the prerogative of legislators in making State
policy when it comes to insurance and educate State legislators on current and longstanding insurance issues.
