Crump Life Insurance Services (Crump) and SelectQuote announced the start of a multi-faceted strategic relationship that will bring much needed life insurance and retirement protection coverage to more distributors, businesses and consumers.
“LIMRA data shows more than 55 percent of the population would feel adverse effects within a year with the loss of a primary wage earner’s income. We believe combining the resources of our two powerhouse organizations can help grow the number of people protected by the products we, and our intermediaries, offer through customer-focused efficient and compliant solutions,” said Crump President, Rob Carney.
“The relationship begins with SelectQuote becoming a member of Crump subsidiary Tellus Brokerage Connections’ independent agency network,” said Senior Vice President and General Manager, Tellus Brokerage Connections, Jim Duff. “This affiliation supports both organizations’ long-term strategy of growth, bringing SelectQuote access to the Tellus resources, processes and products, while strengthening SelectQuote’s support of and offerings to clients,” explained Duff.

We will continue to tailor solutions for our customers giving them the best value for their insurance dollar while producing high-quality business with strong underwriting results. As we look to the future of the insurance industry, collaborating with Crump will further our mission of bringing peace of mind to our customers and quality results to our business partners.”
“With scale and expertise that helps its member firms grow in today’s challenging business environment, Tellus fills an important niche in the marketplace and in the Crump business portfolio,” said Carney. He added, “As our organization evolves and responds to changing market dynamics, Crump has and will continue to provide a broad spectrum of insurance solutions to meet the diverse needs of the marketplace. This new relationship demonstrates the strength of our value proposition as well as the opportunities for future growth across our distribution channels.”
