Life Insurance Awareness Month


WHEREAS, the vast majority of Virginians recognize the importance of life insurance as a safeguard for the financial security of their loved ones; and

WHEREAS, life insurance industry pays roughly $9 billion to Virginia beneficiaries each year, providing a tremendous source of financial relief and security to families experiencing the loss of a loved one; and

WHEREAS, the life insurance industry generates more than 32,000 jobs in Virginia; and

WHEREAS, despite the peace of mind that life insurance brings to hundreds of thousands of Virginia families, there are still too many Virginians who lack adequate life insurance coverage; and

WHEREAS, during the month of September the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors celebrates Life Insurance Awareness Month; and

WHEREAS, Life Insurance Awareness Month is an opportunity to encourage individuals eligible for life insurance to seek advice from a qualified insurance professional, and to take the actions necessary to achieve a financially secure future for their loved ones;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Terence R. McAuliffe, do hereby recognize September 2015 as LIFE INSURANCE AWARENESS MONTH in our COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, and I call this observance to the attention of all our citizens.
