The 2022 Individual Annual Open Enrollment Period is Extended!

AEP continues through January 15th, 2022 for February 1st, 2022 enrollments. If your client still needs coverage for January 1st, 2022, they may still qualify through a Special Enrollment. A Special Enrollment Period may exist for your client due to a qualifying life event or if anyone in their household lost qualifying coverage in the last 60 days or will lose coverage in the next 60 days!

We are here to help in any way that we can. We're looking forward to making this a successful Annual Enrollment Period for 2022.

Life Division

Life Insurance Underwriting Update:

Currently, most carriers still have some temporary restrictions in place.  However, we are starting to notice these restrictions loosen; and carriers are offering coverage to more individuals than earlier this year.  Guidelines are still subject to change but if you have someone who has been declined or postponed, now may be an excellent time to revisit these cases (i.e. clients who would be higher rated or older individuals who tend to have more minor concerns).

Secondly, carriers have expanded their capabilities to underwrite cases without traditional exams typically using electronic applications.  As a broker of Resource Brokerage, you are able to access a tool called “iGO” which integrates with most of our Life carriers and products. This tool is the fastest way to get an application in front of an underwriter.  In addition, it not only allows you to take applications remotely using "DocuSign"-like functionality, but it GREATLY reduces the time spent taking applications by reducing data entry to one time per client.
