Ameritas Kaizen Premium Financing Webinar

Date: March 16, 2021
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm (EST)
Presenter: David Murphy, Ameritas, Advanced Sales

Please click HERE to register.

Think you know Premium Financing – the Ameritas Kaizen product takes it to the next level:
  • Traditional retirement plans are typically insufficient for high-income earners.
  • This strategy helps clients maintain their current lifestyle in the event of a chronic illness, premature death, or an inability to sufficiently save for retirement.
  • It’s the ONLY strategy that uses leverage; its unique fusion of financing and life insurance offers more protection and the potential to earn more for retirement than could be obtained without leverage.
  • This strategy is specifically designed so that the participant is not required to go through financial underwriting or sign any loan documents.

Noteworthy Briefs
Principal: Automatic Standard Approval Program (ASAP), also known as “Table 3 to Standard”, to be discontinued effective April 1, 2021. Principal would eliminate the step of shopping the case to reinsurers, while still getting to the same underwriting outcomes. But over time, the use of table improvement programs has diminished. To be eligible for ASAP consideration, formal applications (both new business and adjustment) must be dated prior to April 1, 2021 and received in our home office by April 15, 2021.

Transamerica: Discontinues standalone long-term care (LTC) business effective March 31, 2021. Applications under approved MultiLife cases (worksite and association) will end June 30, 2021. LTC riders on life insurance policies are not affected. The only impacted products are TransCare® II and TransCare® III. Clients with existing policies are not impacted. Read More Here

John Hancock: Beginning May 2, 2021, every producer's anti-money laundering (AML) course-completion date on file at John Hancock must be on or after January 1, 2020, and prior to the signing date of a new business application.

Important reminder for producers selling the JH LTC rider: Most states have adopted the training requirements outlined in the Deficit Reduction Act of 2006 and the NAIC Long-Term Care Model Act. These require producers selling LTC products, including LTC riders, to take an initial 8-hour NAIC Partnership training course, followed by a 4-hour refresher course every two years. All courses must be approved by ClearCert in order to be accepted as valid training. To determine if a course is approved, please visit ClearCert.com/search-courses
