AALU, GAMA Launch COVID-19 Action Center: Navigating the Crisis Together

Online resource tool to help financial security professionals serve their clients and operate their business during the novel coronavirus crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C.—AALU, the Association for Advanced Life Underwriting, and GAMA International today launched the COVID-19 Action Center. The Action Center features best practices and tools for advisors to navigate this time for their businesses and their clients. It includes timely updates on COVID-19, member insight on remote work or client management, and the latest policy news that will impact the profession.

“This is an unprecedented time when Americans need the financial security profession most,” said Marc Cadin, president and CEO of AALU. “Our members and this entire profession are a light in the dark for so many, and we are here to support them and their critical mission. With increased restrictions and market swings every day, we created this resource center as a guide available to all financial security professionals to continue doing business and serving their clients.”

“Although businesses may be physically shutting their doors, they need all the help they can get to continue operations,” said Bonnie Godsman, CEO of GAMA International. “This is new territory for our members and our country, and more than ever, it shows the importance of this noble profession. We felt it was important to equip them with resources, tools, and information to navigate through this new normal.”

The action center is available to the entire financial security profession. Webinars, podcasts, and exclusive content will be added to the portal weekly with curated news updates daily. The website can be accessed here.
