Eastbridge: Worksite Producers Push For Guaranteed Issue

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Pressure for underwriting changes is one of the most noteworthy trends affecting the insurers that write voluntary products.

About 58% of the voluntary worksite carriers that participated in a recent survey organized by Eastbridge Consulting Group Inc., Avon, Conn., identified demand for more “guaranteed issue” products as the most prominent product trend, and 53% selected “lower participation requirements.”

Although 65% of the carriers said the pressure for more guaranteed issue is coming from brokers and other outside producers, 25% said the pressure is coming from the carriers’ own field staff.
