Research shows carriers enhancing coverage to be more competitive
Voluntary carriers are adding more features and flexibility to their term life insurance plans to stay competitive in a crowded market, according Eastbridge Consulting Group’s newest research.
Eastbridge’s “Voluntary Term Life Products”Spotlight™ Report shows term life continues to dominate the voluntary market, accounting for more than 20% of sales for the past eight years and reaching record highs following the pandemic.
“Term life insurance is a highly competitive product, so many voluntary carriers are looking for ways to make their plans stand apart,” said Danielle Lehman, Eastbridge senior consultant. “Many carriers are enhancing their plans with higher-guaranteed issue amounts, more flexible enrollment options and value-added services.”
