LIMRA's 2012 Retirement Industry Conference is rapidly approaching and industry insiders are expected to discuss how insurance agents can help improve their life insurance leads' ability to save more for retirement.
Robert Baranoff, senior vice president of member benefits at LIMRA, stated that many insurance customers are struggling to plan for retirement due to the rough economy and the financial fallout that's resulted.
"Today's economic and market uncertainties are exacerbating consumers' struggles to adequately save and plan for retirement," said Baranoff. "Not surprisingly, LIMRA's recent survey found that 67 percent of non-retired Americans are not confident that they will have enough money saved to last throughout their lifetime. This problem is going to grow as the number of retirees expands by 15 million, reaching 65 million by 2025."
To help agents better reach their insurance leads, the Retirement Industry Conference will feature some of the most successful industry experts, who may be able to offer advice for insurance agents with regards to how they can advise their clients, he added.
The conference is scheduled for April 25th through the 27th in Orlando, Florida, with "Rising to Today's Challenges" as this year's theme.
