The Leazer Group is not the most well-known insurance provider, but they have a range of services for those that need life insurance coverage, mortgage protection, and more.
The founder of The Leazer Group is Art Leazer. He comes from a long background in the multi-level marketing business, specifically Amway.
Here’s a listing of the products that The Leazer Group sells.
Term life insurance
Over a set period of time, TheLeazer Group’s term life insurance products will pay out to your clients (not to their hospital), to make sure that their family has the funds that they need in case of an emergency.
Whole life insurance
Whole life insurance protects your clients for their lifetime, ensuring that their family gets the agreed-upon premiums and the financial proceeds they accrue over time.
These policies are generally free of income taxes, but as a Leazer Group financial advisor or agent, you will inform them on the specifics to make sure they understand how whole life insurance works.
Indexed universal life
Indexed universal life plans are flexible enough to guarantee protection with a death benefit and tax-deferred growth on clients’ investments.
As an agent, you will offer clients options when setting up waivers, riders, and premium options. Tax-free withdrawals on retirement income and policy loans are other options available in these plans.
The Leazer Group’s annuity options provide policyholders with an income stream during their retirement with a guaranteed interest rate on repayments.
Final expense coverage gives clients’ families options to soften the financial burden related to their death.
This plan is designed to make sure that their family doesn’t have to empty its savings account to pay unexpected costs after your client’s death.
When disability, employment, or death causes a family economic strife, they may lose the family home if they’re unable to pay off the mortgage and associated costs without your client’s income.

The Leazer Group pays based on performance and is 100% straight commission.
Starting commission levels vary, depending on the Leazer Group recruiter.
We have heard agents have commission levels between 60% and 80%.
Leazer Group is one of the newer insurance firms around, and have reviewed as an insurance MLM.
Now that you know a little bit more about The Leazer Group, I’d like to provide my perspective.
Just so you know a little bit about my background:
I have sold final expense insurance since 2011 and have run a national insurance agency since 2013 specializing in final expense, Medicare Advantage, as well as annuities.
Lower Commissions Than Other Organizations
As is very common in the insurance business, a lot of organizations pay significantly less commission than others.
In the case of The Leazer Group, their commission payouts are lower than other organizations.
While commission isn’t everything, it does make a big difference. The more your commission rate is, the more take-home you make on each individual sale.
Emphasis On Recruiting
Like a lot of insurance organizations, The Leazer Group does put an emphasis on recruiting insurance agents.
For example, many organizations encourage new recruits to actively begin recruiting their close family and friends.
This need to bring contacts to the table often overrides the virtues of building an agency, creating passive income, and increasing their overall welfare in the business.
The problem with that thought process is it’s very difficult to train somebody when you have no experience yourself.
Inadvertently, many of these organizations that follow this process have a high attrition rate, with many agents quitting well in advance before they could get started. Simply because opportunities weren’t there.
So be mindful of that before joining The Leazer Group or any other organization.
Ask yourself how important it is to recruit versus learning how to sell. Make your judgment based off of what matters most to you.
Bottom line, The Leazer Group is a great organization and is perfect for the right agent. Regardless of which organization you decide to join, always do your due diligence first.
While there are great organizations out there, no organization is perfect for everyone. What one person may find is a perfect match, another may find as being the worst match possible.
