Review and suitability process
Once we receive the application(s), we'll review for accuracy and completeness. We'll also verify that the application meets suitability requirements for select carriers. 

Issue process
After we’ve reviewed your annuity application, we’ll send it to the appropriate point person at the insurance carrier. Then, we’ll follow it through the process until it’s issued.

This three step process can help you get business issued FASTER, which means your clients will receive their policy FASTER and you’ll get your commission FASTER.
