Disability Financial Underwriting
One of the complexities of disability underwriting is medical and financial reporting. Illinois Mutual has simplified this for cases with benefit amounts of $3,000 or less. If the applied for amount falls at this level or less, the client will require no paramed examination and no income documentation is required if they are a W2 employee. See the attached Simplified Underwriting flyer for details. Call the Allegis disability department for assistance with your cases where this may be helpful.
If your clients are part of a partnership, a properly executed buy-sell agreement is important in the running and maintaining of the business relationship. “Do It yourself” buy-sell agreements are not a proper way of running a business. One of the important factors of the this document is business valuation. Principal offers a complimentary service to review business financial documents and buy sell agreements for correctness and current values. Principal will then provide you with the colored report customized to your client’s business (download PDF below). This then assists you in applying for buy sell insurance funding in the event of death or disability. It is worse to have a disabled partner than a deceased one. Talk to your clients about their business partnerships, offer them this free service and then you can move forward with applying for disability buy sell or life insurance. See the Allegis disability team to request quotes for your clients for this valuable coverage.
