'Tis the Season to Sell Sage Term

These winter months create opportunities to help your clients meet their goals with affordable coverage for 10, 15 or 20 years. Let the planning begin:

People are getting engaged. The most popular days for marriage proposals are Christmas Day, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day. It’s a perfect time to send congratulations and schedule a policy review. 

Couples are getting divorced. The New Year always ushers in the highest rate of annual divorce filings. Spouses who become single parents may need additional insurance to protect their children.

New home sales will rise in 2021. Single-family construction starts are expected to increase to 940,000 in 2021, which is the highest level since 2006. Affordable term insurance is a great way for clients to protect what may be their largest investment.

SecureCare
UL Sales Idea
Since SecureCare Universal Life’s maximum payment age is now age 80 in most states, this allows older clients to take advantage of longer payment duration options and — potentially — a new premium funding strategy. If a client doesn’t need to rely on required minimum distributions (RMDs) from their qualified accounts for retirement income, they could use their RMDs to fund SecureCare. If you have older clients who are late to the long-term care (LTC) planning game, then this is a sales idea you’ll want in your repertoire!
