Updated: May 13



When it comes to securing your financial future and protecting your loved ones, life insurance is the ultimate safeguard. However, the process of obtaining life insurance can seem daunting between all of the options, requirements, and considerations. At NFP Insurance Solutions (NFPIS), we recognize the importance of simplifying this process for our clients, ensuring they receive the coverage they need with an efficient experience from start to finish. Let’s delve into our proven process, whether you're a client directly seeking coverage or an advisor guiding your clients through this vital decision.


Our Proven Process


1. Meet and Greet, Week 1: Your journey begins with a warm welcome and an introduction to NFPIS. In this introductory meeting, we emphasize the value of working with an independent insurance professional and delve into why life insurance matters. During this phase, we aim to understand your financial situation, family dynamics, goals, and health history. Additionally, we identify any existing advisors who play a role in your financial planning.


2. Case Design, Week 2: Our team conducts a thorough review of the information gathered, identifying areas where we can offer assistance. This includes analyzing your current insurance portfolio, assessing policy optimization opportunities, and addressing any planning gaps. We explore various aspects such as liquidity planning, estate tax minimization, and retirement analysis to ensure a holistic approach to helping you provide  financial security for you and your family.


3. Communicating Findings and Preliminary Recommendations, Week 3: In our second meeting, we present our findings, prioritize the issues to be solved, and discuss customized solutions tailored to your needs. We seek your permission to liaise with other advisors, confirming trust structures and other legal entities if necessary. Upon agreement, we proceed with implementation and initiate the underwriting processes.


4. Underwriting , Weeks 4-8: In the underwriting phase, our team will coordinate any exams, doctors’ records, and financial records, if needed. We leverage our professional underwriting team and extensive network of insurance carriers to negotiate the most favorable pricing on your behalf.


5. Post-Underwriting Recommendations, Weeks 9-12: In our third meeting, we review and finalize recommendations, confirm decisions and set an implementation schedule for the formal applications process.   We complete necessary paperwork, work with the desired carrier to get formal approvals, get policies issues, place coverage in force. Additionally, we establish a post-issue service schedule to ensure your coverage remains aligned with your evolving needs.


6. Ongoing Review, Every 12-24 Months: After your coverage is in force, we schedule regular follow-up meetings to review any changes in your financial situation, family dynamics, or health status. These meetings allow us to make necessary adjustments to ensure your coverage remains optimal and continues to provide the protection you need.

What sets our process apart is our unwavering dedication to independence, ensuring that we can secure the best coverage with the carrier that perfectly aligns with your unique needs. Unlike providers who may be limited to a narrow selection of options, our independence empowers us to navigate the insurance landscape freely, exploring a wide array of carriers and policies to find the perfect fit for you.  By prioritizing transparency, thorough discovery, and collaborative decision-making, we empower you to make informed choices that safeguard your financial future with confidence.


Before involving your client, we prioritize building a strong relationship with you through initial meetings. These discussions will help us understand each other's goals and identify areas where our expertise can best collaborate for the client's benefit. Throughout the process, we operate as a unified team, tailoring our approach to your preferences and keeping you fully informed.


In both pathways, our goal remains consistent: to provide personalized, comprehensive life insurance solutions that align with your unique circumstances and goals. Whether you're navigating the process independently or with the guidance of a trusted advisor, NFPIS is committed to simplifying the journey and empowering you to secure your financial future with confidence. Partner with us today and embark on a journey toward peace of mind and financial security.
