On Monday, March 20th, the IAFF Financial Corp. will host a virtual information session to introduce the IAFF Wealth Management Initiative.

The Wealth Management Initiative was created to assist IAFF members and their families to not only avoid the stress that comes from making bad decisions, but to also give firefighters the tools they need to create generational wealth while simultaneously developing a plan to empower them to retire with the dignity a career’s worth of service to our communities deserves.
