INSURED RETIREMENT INSTITUTE’S CAPITOL HILL VIRTUAL FLY-IN THIS WEEK

Posted on March 8, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) is conducting a virtual fly-in with its Board of Directors this week on March 9-10. Across the two-day event, board members will meet with Members of Congress to discuss next steps to further strengthen retirement security for America’s workers and retirees.

IRI’s Board of Directors comprises senior-level executives from life insurers, broker-dealer firms, and asset management companies. IRI board members will meet with nearly 30 Members of Congress and Senators or their staff to discuss IRI's 2021 Retirement Security Blueprint, which details the association’s public policy agenda. The Blueprint contains 30 bipartisan, common-sense proposals to address the retirement anxiety that many workers and retirees have about their ability to accumulate adequate savings to produce sustainable retirement income.

“The solutions offered by the Blueprint will help our nation’s workers and retirees build economic equity, strengthen their financial security, and protect their income during their retirement years,” said Wayne Chopus, IRI President and CEO.
