World Poker Association Announces Complete Financial Benefit Offerings to Membership Base

published on 05/05/09 at 1:25 pm

The World Poker Association announced today that it has reached an agreement with UBS Financial Services to be the exclusive provider of various investment and insurance products on an individual and group basis. These services will be offered exclusively to WPA members.

Asked to give some details on this agreement, Board of Directors member, John “The Greek” Leontakianakos stated,

The WPA has created a partnership with UBS. They will be providing complete financial benefit offerings to our membership base. This includes 401K, IRA, estate planning, life insurance, and most importantly, individual and family health insurance plan.

As most poker players are self employed, they do not have benefit packages and in the event of illness most are not covered. Now through the WPA, poker’s governing body, they can get the same benefit package available as if they worked for a major corporation.

The WPA is pleased to extend these benefits to readership base in the US.

Listed below are the products and services that (WPA) members will have access to. Michael Abramo-Vice President and John Gulielmetti-Senior Vice President from UBS will be at the RIO Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday, May 28th from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. to host a seminar for members of the WPA. If you have any questions in regard to the seminar, or if you would like more information regarding the services offered, please contact Michael Abramo at (617) 439-8103 or toll free at 888-606-2387.
