Term life e-app FAQs

  • Two signature options are available to your clients through the Term Life e-app.

    • Face-to-Face eSignature: The appropriate method to use when the applicant is physically in your presence during the application process.
    • Click-Wrap: An email is sent to the applicant's email address with a link to review the application and apply an electronic signature.
  • Yes, you can view, print and wet sign the paper application; however, you will lose the ability to submit the application electronically to Assurity. In doing so, the Accelerated Underwriting decision is no longer available and payment in the form of credit card submission is no longer valid/accepted.

  • When you answer "yes" to a health question, the "Search all that apply" box appears. Simply start typing and then pick a choice from the options provided to you. You must choose options from the system- do not type your own word or phrase- or the application will be automatically Referred to Underwriting. The occupation search box works the same way.

  • Start typing in the "Search all that apply" box and then pick your applicant's occupation from the choices provided in the system. You must choose from the 12,000+ occupations in the system- do not type your own word or phrase– or the application will be automatically Referred to Underwriting.

  • Yes, but only if using the click-wrap signature option, which allows the client to review the application and sign it electronically.

  • No, the questions are reflexive and change based on the particular health situation of the applicant. Be sure to complete all of the reflexive questions.

  • It's very important for producers to be as accurate as possible when entering the applicant's risk class. The underwriting engine will provide an instant decision for risks class at or above what is entered; however, if the risk class is determined to be lower, the application will be Referred to Underwriting for review.

  • Yes, Assurity accepts credit and debit card payments on the Term Life e-app, but not with paper applications.

  • During the step called the "eSignature Consent - HIPAA," the producer must collect either a face-to-face or click wrap email signature from the applicant. If using the click wrap email signature process, the applicant must select "notify my agent." The producer must refresh the e-app by exiting out after the HIPAA signature.
