eLife has introduced eTerm Express, a new life insurance offering designed with an entirely paperless application and approval process.
Today over 50 million US households either don't have life insurance or don't have enough. This market segment consists of people typically needing from $100,000 to $500,000 of life insurance coverage.
"To date, the industry has been accessing these consumers using antiquated products, outdated methods, and manual underwriting processes with full medical exams," said Christopher Snyder, CEO at eLife LLC.
"Our research shows this is why the middle market has been so difficult to penetrate."
eTerm Express is powered by a breakthrough distribution platform incorporating electronic underwriting and "Straight-Through-Processing."
