When it comes to political advocacy and protecting the interests of its members, NAIFA Massachusetts is one of the best in the business. 

NAIFA Massachusetts Government Relations Committee partners with The Suffolk Group to lobby on behalf of the issues important to our industry, our products and services and our clients.

NAIFA Massachusetts and The Suffolk Group work hand in hand with NAIFA's national law department to positively impact state legislation and regulation. Together they develop lobbying strategies, comment on key issues, implement uniform policies and participate in litigation. Our many successes have hinged on NAIFA's favorable relationships with the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC), the National Conference of Insurance Legislators (NCOIL), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws (NCCUSL).
