COVID-19 Resources for Insurance and Financial Planning Professionals

In December 2019, the first human cases of a never-seen-before coronavirus were identified in Wuhan City, China. Named coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus spread rapidly to pandemic proportions. The United States, which saw its first cases on Jan. 20, 2020, is now the epicenter of the pandemic, with the case count surpassing China and Italy. In trying to stop the spread of the disease and lessen its potentially catastrophic impact on the economy, federal and state officials have made unprecedented moves, from issuing social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders to passing a $2.3 trillion rescue package and closing schools and nonessential businesses. Just as your clients rely on you for support during the crisis, you can rely on Senior Market Sales® (SMS) to carry you through. Here is a list of resources for additional information on COVID-19.
