War Zone Disability Income Insurance!

War Zone Disability Income Insurance!

You’ve hear me talk about war zone or dangerous area life insurance for civilian contractors in numerous posts and you may have inadvertently not connected the disability income feature or product that is also available. Just like the military there are far more wounded than killed, often doing something that in the rest of the world would be safe, driving from one place to another. With the...
The 4th Of July Parade of ADD or  ADHD Challenged!

The 4th Of July Parade of ADD or ADHD Challenged!

You got it. Attention Deficit Driving or Aggressive Disoriented Hyperspeed Driving. I thought I could hide these morons behind simple mood disorder terms and get away with talking about mood disorders and life insurance, but alas I, and more importantly, my Dog, were nearly killed by one of these yesterday. I never tire of the beauty and grandeur of the Heart of the Rockies, that area of Colorado...
What’s Clear About That?

What’s Clear About That?

It probably never was simple or clear even when it was just US based contractors simply running around Iraq and Afghanistan rebuilding infrastructure and buildings that our armed forces had methodically dismantled. Now, and maybe back then, there are people serving companies in every conceivable dangerous place and war zone in every conceivable dangerous job including anti terrorism consulting (?)...

Crazy Life Insurance Agent! Run For Your Lives!!

Could it be true? Could the best of the best at mood disorder life insurance have slipped a cog, missed a gear, dropped his paddle in white water rapids and become one of them? One of you? I can tell you that for the last six months my life, my reality has been turned upside down by a little talked about cause of craziness, traumatic brain injury. If there was anything to laugh about in the afterm...
War Zone Life Insurance Buyer Beware!!

War Zone Life Insurance Buyer Beware!!

I only bring this up because a former client of mine, convinced that I had misinformed him, dropped his Lloyds of London Accidental Death and Dismemberment insurance covering him for all acts of war and terrorism. He works as technical support in a forward operating base in Afghanistan and was paying something in the $200 a month range for $500,000 worth of coverage. His wife did her due diligence...
Fool me once!!!

Fool me once!!!

For those wanting to purchase accidental death policies through Hinerman Group life insurance and Risk Life, well, it just got a little tougher thanks to a client who lied to me about her and her husband’s scuba diving activities. I got a call in March from a lady on St Croix asking about scuba diving accidental death coverage. After going through all of the usual questions about certificati...

Is Your Anxiety Really A Life Insurance Mortality Risk?

Is Your Anxiety Really A Life Insurance Mortality Risk?

Mood disorders have varying degrees of control just like any physical disorder. If you are type 2 diabetic and have an A1c that stays in the mid 6’s because you tend to the business of monitoring and treating the disease, it’s considered well controlled by life insurance underwriters and is rewarded with better approved rates than if your A1c averaged 8.5. If you used to weigh 250 poun...
Insurance For Missionaries And Aid Workers Worldwide!

Insurance For Missionaries And Aid Workers Worldwide!

And while we’re on the subject of those who seem more at risk in an increasingly upset and dangerous world, let’s not leave out journalists and civilian contractors. Not that terrorism has ever had a conscience, but with the explosion of groups that purport to be the voice of the world of Islam, Christians and Aid Workers put their lives on the line daily trying to help those displaced...
ADD And ADHD Life Insurance Risk?

ADD And ADHD Life Insurance Risk?

It has occurred to us that while life insurance companies certainly try to squeeze all the minor mood disorders into one box that they either have it wrong or they are using the wrong box. Let’s consider the life insurance underwriting for depression, anxiety and ADD or ADHD. While there are a hand full of top notch underwriters who agree with us, the majority fit this scenario very well. We...
