How to identify cases that need special handling

How to identify cases that need special handling 

Here is a list of indicators that your client is in need of special handling with their purchase of life insurance. They show high risk with regards to meeting underwriting guidelines – medical, lifestyle, and financial. They also show potentially high risk with regards to case management, and the overall application process. A senior level of “application management” could be needed to ensure advocacy for the client, and the procurement of complicated underwriting requirements.

The role of my firm is to manage both the underwriting and the application processes to secure an approval at the rate quoted.
