How are we able to continually surpass the competition as far as coverage and placement? Our in-house team of underwriters is why. With over 50 years of combined experience, our underwriting team works extensively with both our marketers and their producers to ensure every application submitted is accurate, and that no question about medical or financial history is left unanswered or unexplained. Our underwriting team is so well-known for its effectiveness, in fact, that they even have their own recurring column in our newsletter.
