So far, company representatives have met with more than 25,000 producers since the national tour's kickoff Feb. 5, at the San Diego NAHU Expo. As a result, incoming DI proposals are at an all-time high.
"Our goal is to secure paycheck protection for every American," says Disability Insurance Services President Dan Steenerson. "This year alone, America's Disability Counter shows that more than two million Americans have experienced a disabling injury or illness. With numbers like these, NO ONE (except for the ultra wealthy) should go without DI coverage. We're spreading the word to agents and financial planners so they can spread the word to their clients."
The tour has taken place in a variety of cities across the country.
Producers and financial planners have learned how to find paycheck protection for every client regardless of self-employment, preexisting conditions, or high income; how to build need before building the sale; and how to overcome price objections. At several stops, attendees received continuing education credits.
"The road show has been a great way to raise awareness about a very serious issue that unfortunately impacts many Americans," says Steenerson. "We just wrapped up our Million Dollar Round Table in Atlanta, Ga. and we're looking forward to our next two big stops - NAHU San Antonio, Texas, on June 26 at the Annual Convention and Exhibition, and NAIFA National, Washington DC, on Sept. 10 at the Annual Convention and Exhibition."
