NAIFA-TEXAS: IFAPAC

What is IFAPAC?

Your Business Protection Insurance.

The Insurance and Financial Advisors Political Action Committee IFAPAC’s mission is to help NAIFA advance the legislative and regulatory interests of NAIFA members and their clients by supporting campaigns of candidates for both state and federal public offices. Regardless of party IFAPAC supports legislators who understand the important role agents and advisors play in protecting the financial future of 90 million American families across the country. 

 IFAPAC describes collectively the PACs sponsored by NAIFA at the federal and state levels.  Each PAC is a separate fund dedicated to supporting legislators at their jurisdiction.   Of approximately 5,000 political action committees registered with the Federal Election Commission, your federal PAC, NAIFAPAC ranks in the top tier and is the insurance industry standard-setting PAC.   In the last election cycle, the NAIFAPAC contributed about $1.3 million to federal candidates.

 The power of IFAPAC comes from You, our members!  By combining the resources of  NAIFA members we can reach legislators on both sides of the aisle in Austin and Capitol Hill.  This ensures our grassroots advocates (YOU) and professional staff are able to educate lawmakers on issues important to insurance agents and financial advisors and their clients.
