Our line of participating whole life insurance products has been a hit, and we look forward to continuing to enhance it as we've done in recent years. With the launch of the 5 Pay PAR product in August 2022 and our competitive dividend scale interest rate increased to 6.2% in July 2023, our participating life insurance products stand out from the competition.
We're always looking for ways to improve and to make life easier for you and your clients, so we're enhancing the tools you use to offer participating whole life insurance products.
Starting November 7, 2023, you'll be able to use a new feature in the illustration software to
determine an insurance amount based on the premium.
You'll be able to enter the premium amount chosen by your client, and the illustration tool will calculate the coverage amount associated with the premium. That way, you'll avoid having to change the insurance amount multiple times to get to the premium your client wants.
Enjoy an improved experience when you offer participating whole life insurance!

Financial needs analysis (FNA) is still essential
The FNA is an essential step in determining the insurance coverage required. You can use it to see the gap between your client's current situation and their actual insurance needs, and how to fill it. You can then recommend the right coverage for their insurance needs based on their financial situation.
