By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Insurance Weekly News -- This episode of A.M. BestTV looks at insurance industry-related topics making headlines, including the Senate Banking Committee's approval of a seven-year extension to the federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Program Reauthorization Act, and a Nationwide Financial Retirement Institute survey that finds that health care costs will increasingly outstrip Social Security benefits of many retirees. David Giertz, president of distribution and sales for Nationwide Financial, said optimizing Social Security benefits will become even more crucial as health care costs continue to escalate.

The episode also wraps up A.M. BestTV coverage of the 2014 Bermuda Captive Conference, with emphasis on Bermuda's prominence in the insurance and reinsurance industries. Insurance executives and Bermuda government officials, including the territory's new premier, talk about the hot topics that dominated the conference, such as private equity and captive development in Latin America and Africa.
