NAIFA Welcomes New Member Nick Romo

By Ronan Friend on 3/18/22 5:43 AM

Nicholas “Nick” Romo knows the impact life insurance can have and works to protect families every day.

Romo didn’t start out in the insurance and financial services industry, but he was drawn to it by two factors. First, he saw two of his friends who opened successful insurance offices. They were helping people who weren’t being served by large investment companies, and he knew that he, too, could make a difference. Second, he saw the real-life effects of not having insurance, as several family members passed away unexpectedly without life insurance—or without enough coverage. He knew that, if they had been covered, it would have been much easier for their families. “I thought it could be my role to help people in those situations,” he says.

By NAIFA-New York on 2/16/22 11:23 AM

Last year, the Appellate Division, Third Department, found Regulation 187 to be unconstitutionally vague. The Appellate Division concluded that “ambiguities in the language employed, coupled with [the regulations] lack of clear standards for how these provisions will ultimately be enforced” bestow upon DFS “virtually unfettered discretion” in enforcing the regulation, thereby rendering it unconstitutionally vague.

Legislative & Regulatory Update - February 2022

By NAIFA-New York on 2/4/22 1:39 PM

Legislative Update

The Legislature this week ratified new lines for New York’s Congressional and state legislative districts. The once in a decade process marked the first time that Democrats in the State Legislature held complete control over the reapportionment process. Preliminary indications point to Congressional Democrats having the opportunity to pick up three seats in New York.

Under the newly adopted State Senate lines, New York City will gain one seat in Brooklyn and Queens. These new lines largely reflect the growth in population in New York City over the last decade.
