Enhancing the client experience with LTCG
Our Care Solutions interview vendor, LTCG, will soon make it even easier for clients to schedule interviews online, and OneAmerica is the first company to utilize this new option. Currently, LTCG uses emails (when an email address is provided) to reach out to clients for interview scheduling online. Starting May 1, they will add texting to this process for OneAmerica customers, when a cell phone number is provided, offering clients another option for how to schedule their LTCG interview online. Online scheduling is the fastest, most convenient way for a client to schedule their interview!
Attention Rhode Island: Best interest is here!
Rhode Island has updated the requirements around best interest and suitability in annuity transactions. New training courses will be required to be able to submit applications for any annuity products, including Asset Care annuity funding whole life. The changes for Rhode Island went into effect April 1, 2021. Producers selling any annuity products, including Asset Care Annuity funding whole life in Rhode Island, must take these new training courses to sell these products. These courses can be taken using your usual training platform or https://www.oneamerica.com/alproducttraining. Existing producers have until July 1, 2021, to update their training, and new producers must take the new Best Interest Annuity Suitability four-hour training before solicitation of applications. An email was sent on April 9 to those affected by these changes.

Reminder: Grace period in place to assist policyholders receiving late billing statements
We have become aware that due to pandemic and weather-related mailing delays, some policyholders are receiving their premium notices very close to the payment due date. The attached stuffer has been added to all client billing statements to help educate on our grace period and other practices. We continue to monitor the USPS situation and identify process improvements to mitigate some of these challenges.
