Life Insurance AntiMissionarianism!

Life Insurance AntiMissionarianism!

I remember when I learned to spell antidisestablishmentariansim. 6th grade. I was way proud of myself even though I had no clue what it meant. I think that came in about the 10th grade and by then, even though I knew what it meant, I didn’t care. So now I make up words, mostly for the blogs, and sometimes just to get looks. All of that is to say that my most recent word, at least according t...
When You Climb Higher Than Most SkyDivers Jump From!!

When You Climb Higher Than Most SkyDivers Jump From!!

Since the first half of the twentieth century, about 7,000 people have attempted to climb the tallest peak in the world, and almost 300 of them have perished doing so.  In the high elevations of the Himalayas, death befalls climbers due to a number of different causes including altitude sickness, falls, avalanches and rope accidents.  The slopes of Mount Everest have proved deadly for many decad...
Acts Of War Or Terrorism Life Insurance!

Acts Of War Or Terrorism Life Insurance!

I don’t like to play on people’s fears when helping with life insurance, but let’s be practical. If you are a missionary, business person or civilian contractor with ties to the US and you’re working in areas of the world where bad people are playing the wreaking havoc game and being American targets gets them the most points, life insurance that speaks directly to acts of...
More Opportunities for Missionary Life Insurance!

More Opportunities for Missionary Life Insurance!

While we’ve been able to offer life insurance for missionaries world wide for some time, with just one company we’ve been restricted to their products and pricing. While the pricing and products are fair, for some, especially younger missionaries, being restricted to a 10 year term isn’t optimal. Recently we contracted with another life insurance company that, while not world wid...
Breathing New Life Into Missionary Life Insurance!

Breathing New Life Into Missionary Life Insurance!

We get that life insurance companies aren’t really against Christians and we understand that’s not why they are so wary about underwriting missionaries. The underwriting truth with traditional life insurance companies is that Christians are persecuted all over the world and in some parts of the world that persecution can lead to an untimely death. They will decline to offer coverage. M...
I Will Never Know Enough To Do This Job!

I Will Never Know Enough To Do This Job!

It occurred to me after I had finished getting information for quotes from a man who only had half a diaphragm that gave him less than perfect pulmonary function on that side, coming right on the heels of getting life insurance approval on an HIV+ case, which was preceded by binding coverage for a company CEO to have $1 million in coverage to do counter terrorism work in Iraq and helping another c...
Foreign National Business Life Insurance Hoops!

Foreign National Business Life Insurance Hoops!

We never cease to be amazed by the way the pendulum of requirements swings for legitimate foreign national business owners who want to buy US life insurance. We get that the pendulum follows the US State Department’s feelings about the safety of countries, but that part of it seems to stay more stable than the issue of the foreign national’s ties to the US. One year life insurance comp...
Sorry! Can’t Do Life Insurance For Mercenaries!!

Sorry! Can’t Do Life Insurance For Mercenaries!!

Obama has declared no boots on the ground enough times that we can be sure of one thing. If boots are seen on the ground he won’t have directly ordered that to happen. And I’m not saying that Obama lies, very often, but is it a coincidence that we got a call the other day from a Civilian Contractor who had put together a small army of ex US military guys that were going to work as sold...
Breaking The Life Insurance Ice With Alaska’s Fishermen!

Breaking The Life Insurance Ice With Alaska’s Fishermen!

We’ve been a leader in acquiring life and accidental death and dismemberment insurance for people with dangerous hobbies and dangerous careers for years and recently we helped a crab fisherman from Alaska get $100,000 in coverage, something that he and his girlfriend had kind of written off assuming no one would do it. For us and the underwriters with Lloyds of London there wasn’t a hu...
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...
