  • Life Insurance Audits
    Life insurance policies are long-term assets that once purchased, are often ignored. But over time, many things can change in the insured’s life. The death of a spouse, a new spouse, the addition of children in the family, varying financial needs—all require a review of your existing insurance policies. Additionally, changes in the marketplace such as the introduction of more innovative products, and revisions to various laws and regulations may have a dramatic effect on your current policies. Following are just a few of the key areas that are critically reviewed when auditing your existing life insurance:
    • Underwriting reclassifications due to medical advancements: In countless cases, medical histories that were deemed uninsurable or highly rated in the past could now be rated as standard, saving you money.
    • Fluctuating interest rates, dividend scales and market performance: Changes with the stock market and interest rates can have a dramatic effect on the returns you may achieve on your permanent life insurance.
    • Changes to product expenses and insurance charges: Cost of Insurance (COI) charges can be changed by the insurance company, having a direct impact on your projected returns.
    • Development of secondary market: You may have a choice of selling your policies to an investor which could return more to you than the cash surrender value.
    • Changes in the insurance industry: Life insurance companies have experienced buyouts, mergers and demutualization, all of which could present positive opportunities or negative results.
    • Product enhancements: BCG ensures that you are taking advantage of the benefits of competitive pricing and policy enhancements as products and markets change.
    • Policy holders’ life changes: The Life Insurance Audit℠ process reviews the insured’s changing needs, goals and objectives.
