Quick Life is a multi-carrier platform. Offering the “best of class” carriers in the term life insurance marketplace, a multi-carrier platform reduces your liability as it relates to suitability and offering the client the best product for their needs. The financial model is Revenue Share. No fees or out of pocket expenses for processing before revenue is generated. Marketing Support. Quick Life has recently launched its Playbook called, “How to Win at Quick Life.” It is a compilation of best practices including sample letters, emails, professionally designed ads, sales contests, tracking mechanisms and more. We will share, guide and administer a “Flight Plan” we create together. The Quick Assist. With Quick Life an advisor can identify a candidate for life insurance, engage that candidate with the life insurance experts at Quick Life and be done. No rate classification questions from the client, no awkward medical questions to ask and no paperwork to handle. Send the client to your life insurance experts and the Financial Advisor is done. Quick Life offers the combination of an Advisor portal and a full service consumer interface. Quick Life focuses on determining accurate rates up front to ensure higher placement ratios and a better customer experience. Electronic Applications make data entry faster and more accurate. This reduces issues in underwriting and administration set up on each case which makes the entire process faster. Quick Life offers the best of both worlds when it comes to quickly issued, simplified life insurance products and the lowest cost, fully underwritten ones. Both are good; alone each ignores a segment of the marketplace and together they make a complete package that allows you to offers the clients the best product for their individual leads. Extreme Case management: o Case Management, The Old Way = If additional information/forms are needed, the carrier posts the case status on their website. The Agent logs into the carriers’ website to check the case status each week (at best) and proceeds with chasing the client for the required signatures or forms. o Extreme Case Management, The Quick Life Way = After the carrier flags the case status, the information is automatically streamed into the Quick Life system (in real time) and our team can immediately begin chasing the client. The Agent is not bothered with this issue. Insurance Company Partners Lincoln Financial Group A.M.

It’s all about the process and refining and streamlining that process as technology advances. Management – Experience and Accountability. Managers of this operation have been working in this niche for more than 10 years. They have product, process, system and IT expertise; call center operations experience and the ability to manage people. Passion – in this case, the passion to serve families with an easier way to buy life insurance. Capital – The company is financially sound. The process of quoting, applying and issuing affordable term life insurance as quickly as possible using fully underwritten and now simplified issue products is what Quick Life is all about. David R.
