Early this year MetLife launched their new MetLife Income Guard product with lower rates for many occupations (approved in 44 states) – and put themselves right back at the top as an industry leader. Additionally, they introduced a new, dedicated DI sales desk.
MetLife continues to make it easier for you to do Disability Income business. Effective September 15th, they’ve updated their medical underwriting requirement – the update reduces the need for telephone interviews and introduces a new, Simple Paramed for many applicants.
And, effective immediately, the Simplified Underwriting Program (SUP) for disability insurance now leads the industry in coverage amounts. Clients can obtain up to $6,500/month of individual coverage and $10,000/month of Business Overhead Expense (BOE) coverage, with no medical exams or financial documentation – that’s more than double the previous amount of coverage available on an individual basis.
