- Offer to speak or even meet with any of your other advisors such as your CPA or attorney

- Verifying details with the service provider during the application process
How Advanced Degreed Financial Professionals Ensure Your Interests are Protected
Throughout the planning and application process, our dedicated agents will help prevent you from making crucial life insurance mistakes. For example, while death benefits are typically tax-free upon payment, there is a risk of taxation as a result of mistakes with policy ownership and/or premium payments. In these cases, you could find yourself with a tax burden that could be as high as 40% - 50% of the final benefit.
In other circumstances, mistakes made during the life insurance application process could result in your ultimate death proceeds being denied payment. Our Certified Financial Planners™ and other degreed experts will thoroughly review the application process and policy purpose so that we do not let this happen.
