So Pot’s Legal Some Places. Does Life Insurance Care?

So Pot’s Legal Some Places. Does Life Insurance Care?

We’ve had a few questions coming from Colorado and Washington about life insurance stance on marijuana use since both states have legalized recreational use. We put the question out to all the life insurance companies we represent and I am writing this as the answers come in. What I think we’ll find is that legality will make some changes but, like alcohol, they are going to roll over...
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...
Who Would Raise Life Insurance Rates More Than 50%?

Who Would Raise Life Insurance Rates More Than 50%?

The answer that pops into our head in the super competitive life insurance market is a company that doesn’t want to sell any more life insurance, or more specifically in this case doesn’t want people to buy any more of one product until they can get it off the market. Genworth Life and Annuity, formerly First Colony has found themselves holding a term life insurance conversion product...

Let’s Meet In The Middle On Business Life Insurance!

It happens all too often so we might as well divulge the antidote to one of the most common problems with business life insurance. What happens when the bank mandates, your partnership, or the board of directors of your company tell you that you need life insurance to protect the liquidity of your company, and your personal health or maybe your lifestyle or hobbies make that task much easier said...
No Life Insurance Late Payment Notice? What Is Protective Thinking?

No Life Insurance Late Payment Notice? What Is Protective Thinking?

We get customer service. It’s a good thing where you go out of your way to make sure things work out satisfactorily for a client. That’s why life insurance companies send out late payment notices during the grace period to make sure that a customer didn’t miss their statement which could lead to an unplanned lapsed policy. I was talking to a Protective Life insurance client, reti...
Life Insurance Over 50 Urban Myth Busted!

Life Insurance Over 50 Urban Myth Busted!

As long as we’ve been involved with life insurance, which puts us in the over 50 and at least one over 60 age categories, turning age 50 has been blamed for everything from being declined for life insurance to prices and assumed risk quintupling if that’s a word. While we would be the last to tell you that life insurance just gets cheaper as you age, the idea that age, any age is cause...
Conversion With American General Hits All Time Low!

Conversion With American General Hits All Time Low!

We are currently working with a CEO of a world wide company who came to the end of his 10 year guarantee term on both his $10 million key man business life insurance policy and his personal $5 million dollar policy. It shouldn’t have been an issue for the American General agent to provide a new term policy, but this executive had developed a few life insurance wrinkles in that 10 years, most...
Compliance Trumps Life Insurance Risk!

Compliance Trumps Life Insurance Risk!

As we were reviewing a new case it occurred to us that how much a client cares about a health issue, how compliant they are with medical recommendations, is more than half the battle in finding the best possible life insurance rates for their situation. This client is an absolutely stellar example of that kind of compliance and how the medical issue he is dealing is, well, not going to be the deat...
High Stress Professionals At Risk Of High Stress Life Insurance Rates!

High Stress Professionals At Risk Of High Stress Life Insurance Rates!

It doesn’t take much imagination to see that we are a nation of stressed out folks. Maybe we’re a little whiny when you consider that as bad as it gets here is probably very comparable to as good as it gets in some other countries, but we’ve created this fast paced, high stress society and if you aren’t a participant in the stress you aren’t participating in the ups...
When The CEO Isn’t A Life Insurance Poster Child!

When The CEO Isn’t A Life Insurance Poster Child!

Executives of companies, in spite of the fact that they have professionally “made it”, don’t necessarily have every life category nailed and like the rest of us who are over age 50 or 60, may not be a poster child for $12 a month life insurance. The truth is that depending on the company only about 10% to 15% of people qualify for the best life insurance rates and in spite of C...
