Triest Insurance Agencies, one of the oldest and most respected insurance agencies in the United States has recently adopted a technology that allows clients to apply for life insurance online. Triest Agency is a leader in sales of term life insurance, having sold thousands of policies. "Most competitors require an applicant to spend several hours in meetings to complete a quote and paper application for life insurance. We know our clients, many of whom are successful businesswomen, businessmen, doctors, lawyers and other professionals, are excited that they can spend less than 10 minutes to review and sign an online application," says Larry Freudenberg, owner and President of Triest Insurance Agencies. Applicants can apply, sign and submit their application for low cost level term life insurance and even universal life insurance using a secure online link. Besides saving time for clients, the process is in keeping with Triest Insurance Agencies green initiative to reduce paper consumption.
The electronic signature option to apply for life insurance can be explained in three simple steps:
1. Review - After the client speaks to a Triest Agency licensed insurance agent by phone, the client will be sent an email link. The link will include all of the application information for the client to review and make any changes he/she feels are necessary.
2. Sign - After reviewing the application on their computer, the client signs electronically. That amounts to just typing their name a few times.
3. Submit - The client has full control over the process. If they want to proceed, then all that's necessary is hitting "submit". The application is sent in seconds to the insurance carriers' underwriter to start the approval process. That alone saves days, if not weeks from the old days of submitting a paper application by mail.
"We expect this to be the future of applying for life insurance but most competitors won't embrace these new technologies like our agency," says Freudenberg.
