Legendary entertainer Rita Moreno brought star power to the NAIC Summer 2016 National Meeting as she discussed her partnership to educate consumers about insurance issues.
Rita shared her personal story with meeting attendees about her struggles to make sense of her insurance and financial situation after losing her husband.
"The work you do on behalf of consumers is so important," said Rita. "I can personally vouch for how hard navigating this stuff can be. Thank goodness for the information you provide."
NAIC President and Missouri Insurance Director John M. Huff toasted Rita during a reception with commissioners, saying "If there were an award given for PSAs, we're confident you'd be taking home yet another golden statue!"
Rita has recorded public service announcements (PSAs) for Insure U in English and Spanish. To date, her PSAs aired more than 10,000 times in 42 states, generating nearly 85 million impressions.
Full coverage of Rita's appearance will be in tomorrow's edition of the Daily News.
