Almega Life Solutions is paid a commission by the insurance company once the insurance policy is issued and premiums are received by the insurance company.
How much the commission is varies by company. We work with a lot of different companies and as such we don’t pay attention to who pays what. We use the insurance company which makes the most sense for the task at hand.
Some insurance companies pay volume bonuses. Again we don’t factor into our decision of which insurance company to recommend based on our incentives. We do the right thing!
Once you select an insurance policy you wish you apply for we will send you an application to complete. Typically we pre-fill as much information as we can, highlight those areas to be completed, and place tabs where signatures are required. The application is sent to you with a pre-paid priority mail envelope to return it to Almega Life Solutions once completed. In certain instances the application will completed in person with Almega Life Solutions or sent to you to be completed electronically.
Upon return receipt of your application we will scrub through the application for areas which may need further clarification, errors, and completeness.
From there you will receive a telephone call from a nurse or paramedic who will come to your house, or wherever you are comfortable, to complete a quick medical exam (height, weight, blood pressure, and blood draw). The cost of this exam is paid for by the insurance company. If any supporting documentation is required from your doctor we will order this information as well. Life Insurance policies with higher death benefits may request additional medical underwriting (ie. EKG, Stress Test, etc.).
With everything completed the insurance company will review the insurance application and medical underwriting and make a decision to issue the policy as applied, issue at a higher or lower rate, or decline the coverage. From there you will make the decision to accept the policy or not.
If you accept the policy, you will then be required to pay the initial premium and/or send in automatic draft information. Many insurance companies will now accept credit card for payment and monthly draft. Please note Almega Life Solutions does not typically collect monies with the application as this gives you the ability to accept or reject the policy before the insurance company issues the insurance policy.
When insurance companies issue a life insurance policy they will either issue the policy as applied for, issue at a higher rate or lower rate, or decline coverage.
In cases when the insurance company issues the policy at a higher rate than applied for or declines the policy you will be provided with their reason. Also you will be given all of the information the insurance company used to make its determination. Often times we will “shop” the information provided back to you with other insurance companies.
Just because you are rated higher or declined doesn’t mean you are doomed to pay higher rates or will never get coverage. This simply means your application did not fit who the insurance company wants to issue policies to. For example, certain insurance companies we work with will issue insurance policies to US Navy fighter pilots at phenomenal rates when others companies will decline the coverage.
Fortunately we know which companies don’t like certain jobs and health risks and which ones to avoid. We also know which insurance companies work better for certain situations like estate planning, or Life + LTC combo insurance. Hopefully we can save the time upfront.
If you do get declined, or rated a higher premium, don’t take it personally. It just means we are going to have work a little harder to find the right fit.
Yes and no.
Some insurance companies for example don’t like to insure police officers while others love to insure them. Often times the insurance just doesn’t understand the risks the occupation carries and shys away from those professionals.
There are certain professions which are simply going to require paying more money for life insurance. Examples are: Deployed Military Personnel, International Military Contractors, Hyperbaric Welders, and Alaskan Crab Fisherman.
Fortunately, Almega Life Solutions prides itself on its ability to help clients Realize Impossible. We know which companies accept certain occupations and which companies do not. Plus our track record for helping get insurance for risk professions speaks highly of our professionalism.
