National Life Insurance Day
May 3, 2021 by National Day Calendar
National Life Insurance Day each year on May 2nd marks the anniversary of the first day that life insurance became available in the United States. The observance also brings awareness of the benefits of life insurance.
The sale of life insurance in the U.S. began in the late 1760s. The Presbyterian Synods in Philadelphia and New York City created the Corporation for Relief of Poor and Distressed Widows and Children of Presbyterian Ministers in 1759.
