INDIANAPOLIS – The Society of Professional Journalists has partnered with WestPoint Financial Group to provide benefits programs to SPJ members. This partnership gives members the opportunity to enroll in individual life, health, disability, long-term care, personal liability, property liability and errors & omissions insurance programs. The disability and long-term care products, offered through MassMutual, carry a 10 percent lifetime premium discount to SPJ members.

Based in Indianapolis, WestPoint Financial Group is a full-service financial firm, offering products and services in all 50 states. Its primary insurance products are available through MassMutual, but WestPoint has relationships with other financially strong companies and it strives to offer competitive rates.

SPJ members now have “one-stop shopping” for all of their insurance and financial planning needs. While this benefits program, called SPJ Solutions, will be most attractive to SPJ’s freelance journalists, all SPJ members are eligible for the program, easing some of the uncertainty during job transitions like downsizing and lay-offs. Members will have one phone number (317-627-4753) and email address ( to reach a WestPoint financial advisor to provide them with personal service within two business days of the initial contact.

“We’re pleased to partner with SPJ to offer a broad range of benefits to its members and to help them navigate the complicated world of insurance products,” said Scott Biggs, a financial advisor with WestPoint Financial.

SPJ president Sonny Albarado commented on the new relationship, “This service should help SPJ members achieve professional and personal financial security. I am excited that SPJ can offer journalists extra value for their membership in this way.”
