NU Online News Service, Oct. 22, 1:18 p.m. – Lincoln National Corp., Fort Wayne, Ind., says it will use Web technology from AnnuityNet, Leesburg, Va., to improve its systems for communicating with the companies that distribute its annuities.

The new systems should give distributors more information about the annuities and beef up capabilities for servicing annuities that have already been sold, Lincoln National says.

AnnuityNet has also announced technology support and development deals in the past four months with Legg Mason Wood Walker Inc., Baltimore; Hartford Life Insurance Company, Simsbury, Conn.; John Hancock Financial Services Inc., Boston; and Thomson/Wiesenberger, Rockville, Md.
