Final Expense Telesales Broker Onboarding Overview
Watch this video below *completely* before proceeding
Please Follow Each Step In The Order Described Below
Phase 1: Onboarding
Phase 2: Submit Carrier Contracts
IMPORTANT: First, watch the video directly below. Then, read everything below to submit your carrier appointments on SuranceBay!
When prompted, ONLY Choose The Following 4 Carriers To Start!
Select the following 3 carriers in SuranceBay: Click here to access (will say David Duford at the top right-hand corner)
- SBLI Final Expense
- AIG/American General (same company – may be listed in SuranceBay as one or the other)
- Trinity/Family Benefit Life
Make SURE you also request CICA below using the pre-contracting link (CICA is NOT available in SuranceBay):
- CICA: Click here to complete pre-contracting (you will get an email within the next 48 business hours to complete the rest of contracting)
NOTE: If any carriers are locked up, please contact email@example.com for alternates.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Please check the carrier state availability guide here to ensure the suggested carriers above are available. If not, check the “Telesales Friendly Carrier” tab for other carrier ideas you can use instead.
For New York Resident Agents: You cannot sell final expense over the phone in New York – you’ll have to sell over the phone to residents of other states, so please choose the carriers according to those states you’re intending to market in.
Did You Select Carriers That Are NOT On The Approved List Above?
You MUST request approval from contracting for any carriers you select *other than the primary and backup carriers listed above.*
Understand that overloading yourself with carriers is not a smart idea. More complication equals a higher failure rate. Keep things simple!
Please note that we do not accept appointments for the following carriers for new agents to DIG until we have several months of solid production history:
- Royal Neighbors Of America
- Aetna/American Continental
Please watch the video below for a step-by-step process to create your SuranceBay Account and submit your carriers:
Important Note About Direct Deposit Setup
We are not able to accept starter/convenience checks, deposit slips, or direct deposit forms.
Please submit a voided check with a valid check number, which matches the Account Name, Bank Name, Account Number, and Routing Number in SuranceBay.
If your account does not have checks, please provide a letter from your bank on bank letterhead, signed by a bank officer with their title clearly indicated, stating the bank account owner name, the ABA/Routing number used for direct deposits, and the bank account number and type.
How To Complete AML Training
Many carriers will also require you to complete Anti-Money Laundering Training. See the video directly above for guidance on how to do that.
SuranceBay also has one available for free inside of your account once you’re in the AML section as well you can complete.
