National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors

Certification Overview

Founded in 1890 as The National Association of Life Underwriters (NALU), NAIFA is the oldest, largest, and most prestigious association representing the interests of insurance professionals from every Congressional district in the United States. Our mission—to advocate for a positive legislative and regulatory environment, enhance business and professional skills, and promote the ethical conduct of its members—is the reason NAIFA has consistently and resoundingly stood up for agents and called upon members to grow their knowledge while following the highest ethical standards in the industry. NAIFA certification and designation programs serve consumers by recognizing financial professionals with a mark of distinction and standards of excellence that differentiates them from their peers and to the clients they serve.
