Academy 2020 Election Guides Offer Insight on Key Issues
With the 2020 Iowa caucuses just over two weeks away, the Academy released 2020 Making Issues Count, offering voters information on key issues of interest in areas of health insurance, Social Security, and more. The election guides give key background information and sample questions for presidential and congressional candidates about financial challenges and public policy reform options for major insurance and retirement systems and programs such as Social Security and Medicare, along with health insurance coverage, lifetime income and retirement risk, climate risk, and long-term care.
“Financial security issues are top-of-mind for millions of Americans in this important election year, and the Academy considers it paramount to provide nonpartisan information about the issues based on our profession’s unique expertise in analyzing risk to voters ahead of next month’s Iowa caucuses,” said Academy President D. Joeff Williams.
