In response to increasing consumer preference for holistic financial solutions that meet multiple planning needs, and demand for ease and speed of business, today Lincoln Financial Group introduced several new life insurance products that deliver greater value and flexibility, as well as digital underwriting enhancements that simplify and expedite the buying process.
The new products and services reflect Lincoln’s commitment to advancing the traditional life insurance business model, an important step to meet the evolving expectations of clients and advisors, as recognized in a recent report from Ernst and Young, ‘What Should Insurers Do Today to Prepare for Tomorrow.’ Among the strategies to ‘futurize’ the business model, the report cites the need for products that address all aspects of financial wellness, including protection, retirement and health, and digitized and enhanced customer touchpoints.
New and Enhanced Products
“Consumers and advisors are looking for insurance products that offer financial planning flexibility, and buying experiences more consistent with other industries,” said Mike Burns, senior vice president, Life Solutions, Lincoln Financial Group. “With these evolving expectations, Lincoln continues to transform the life insurance business model, delivering policies that go beyond a death benefit – providing ‘living benefits’ that help clients achieve financial goals in various phases of life. And we’re making it more convenient to purchase and own those policies with simpler, faster, high-tech buying and service experiences.”
