"We are proud to participate in this year's annual awareness campaign," said Carol Springsteen, president of Foresters Life Insurance and Annuity Company. "Life Happens® has done an excellent job over the years in building awareness about the benefits of life insurance as one of the best ways to safeguard a family's financial future."

"In the true spirit of this annual campaign, we hope that people will take the time to learn more about how life insurance can help protect them and their family," Springsteen added. "Specifically, we encourage them to speak with a Foresters Financial Representative who can help choose the life insurance coverage that's best for them."
