Real Life Stories: A Burden Relieved

As Joe approached his 65th birthday and his disability insurance was about to expire, James suggested long term care insurance.

You will see there has been no difference in the participation rates and caps on our inforce policies and our new policies. Many carriers don’t publish their renewal rates.

Critical Illness Has Built-in Return of Premium

A Critical Illness policy provides a direct payment to policyholders if diagnosed with a covered condition. And, if you have clients who are worried about paying premiums for something they may never use, a built-in return of premium can help ease their concern.
