North American Applications Reminder

Most consumers who buy life insurance toss the policy in their document file and never look at it again assuming everything is fine and they are covered. This attitude can lead to big issues down the road as often times what a consumer thinks they bought isn’t what they bought or it’s not performing the way they thought it was supposed to. In addition to this life happens and the individuals who were named as beneficiaries at the time of the application might not be who the insured wants to be beneficiaries now. Doing policy reviews is a great non invasive way to add value and uncover new business. Call today to request a complimentary policy review guide.
File and Suspend
Don’t forget that anyone who is age 66 or older has until April 29th to file and suspend their benefits. Beginning April 30th that option will no longer be available.
