New! Text message notifications for SecureCare tele-interview

We are excited to announce an enhancement to the SecureCare Universal Life underwriting process: Beginning June 1, clients can receive text message notifications directing them to schedule their tele-interview. The tele-interview itself will still need to be completed over the phone, but the texts can be helpful reminders that a tele-interview is needed, making it easier to schedule an assessment and get in touch with an interviewer. How will this work? LTCG will still contact customers the same amount of times they do today, however, a contact attempt will now be defined as either a phone call or text message.
