For these clients, it’s decision time. The good news is you don’t have to miss out on commissions. Talk to your clients about using an internal transfer of their EquiTrust contract. And it's a great opportunity to invite them to review their insurance and financial objectives with you and determine if using an internal transfer of their EquiTrust contract fits into their strategy. Plus, you'll have the chance to continue to earn commission.
How an internal transfer works
Internal transfers are available on EquiTrust traditional and fixed index annuities (FIAs) outside the surrender charge period and can be made to any currently offered EquiTrust product, except Confidence Income®. Partial transfers are allowed from out-of-surrender contracts, but internal transfers of the penalty-free portion of an inforce annuity still in the surrender charge period are not allowed.
For example, you may have a client who is ready to reposition a MarketTen Index® annuity contract and who also needs long-term care (LTC) coverage. Completing an internal transfer to Bridge® — an FIA that includes riders to provide LTC coverage and a personalized wellness program — could be a great solution.
Full compensation for you
A full application packet is required, including internal transfer forms and applicable state-specific internal transfer forms. And as the writing agent submitting the required paperwork, you’ll receive full compensation.
