Lake Park rep joins Life Insurance Disclosures committee

ATLANTA, GA (WALB) -

State Representative John Corbett, a Lake Park republican, has been appointed to the House Study Committee on Life Insurance Consumer Disclosures by House Speaker David Ralston.

“As legislators, we are held to a certain standard of transparency by our constituents, and the insurance industry should be no different,” said Rep. Corbett. “Our seniors should have full-knowledge of the benefits available to them, and I look forward to working with my colleagues to ensure the best possible access to this information for them.”

This seven member Study Committee, Chaired by State Representative Carl Rogers (R-Gainesville) is established by House Resolution 806, and will study the need for life insurance consumer disclosure of long-term care and senior living benefits of life insurance policies to help seniors better understand their legal right of ownership, as well as options available to them under their policies.
