Strength Must Be Earned – Even in the Insurance Industry

When we offer a product, we know we’re staking a century’s worth of hard-won reputation on it. So we know our IUL products have to be honest and simple.

We’re Strongest When We Work Together

Nothing is More Powerful than Passionate People Working Together. Recently, we’ve seen the IUL industry beginning to use complex product features to enhance their hypothetical illustration values. This has taken the focus off of doing what’s right for clients and put it on to which company can manipulate their product to illustrate better values. Choosing a product based on these illustrated values might be appealing, but it may not be what’s best for our industry in the long run. We need to get back to selling IULs based on what they were designed to do and provide customers with a

Initial Premium Bank Draft Update

We recently informed you of a technical issue with our initial premium payment drafts. We have fixed the issue and the bank drafts for initial premium are functioning like normal. When your client requests a specific date for the first premium draft, their bank account will be drafted on the day they requested – not a few days later. If your client picks the second Tuesday of each month – their payment will come out on the second Tuesday of each month. Don’t forget to let your clients know they have options when selecting the date their payment comes out.
