COVID-19 Resources for IIAG Members

What does COVID-19 mean for you and your customers?

The news about the COVID-19 coronavirus is in constant update, and at this point the impact is spreading. From cancelled events, business interruption, gossip and fear, and—at its worst—illness, your customers, agency, and family will feel its effects. But there's no need to panic.  Information is power, and we're curating some of the best resources to help you plan and maintain your well-earned position as the trusted source for your customers.

IIAG remains open for business and fully functional.  We will continue to be available to our members when you call or email.   We are part of your team, and we will always have your back through successes and challenges—like this coronavirus outbreak.

We've put together several resources to walk you through how this affects you:

COVID-19 Business Resources

CARES Act

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act has numerous provisions that impact Big “I” members, businesses both large and small, and individuals. The legislation focuses on four urgent priorities: delivering aid to small businesses to avoid insolvencies and to keep paychecks flowing, providing recovery checks and unemployment insurance directly to the American people, appropriating additional funding and resources for the healthcare fight against COVID-19, and stabilizing key industries to prevent mass layoffs.

Families First Act

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act or FFCRA requires certain employers to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19.  The Department of Labor’s (Department) Wage and Hour Division (WHD) administers and enforces the new law’s paid leave requirements. These provisions will apply from the effective date through December 31, 2020.

Recovery Fund

The Covid-19 Business and Community Continuity and Recovery Fund (the "Recovery Fund") is modeled after a streamlined version of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund legislation, with important distinctions designed to simplify the application process and speed payment to COVID-19 impaired business, while reducing the potential for fraud. This is another tool to provide tailored federal assistance to keep businesses solvent and workers employed. The Recovery Fund would leverage private sector contractors, and potentially insurers and producers on a voluntary basis, to facilitate both expedited applications and interim payments as well as auditing ongoing relief.
