Using technology for a better client experience with Corporate-Owned Life Insurance
A non-qualified plan is an attractive benefit that may help to recruit, reward and retain valued employees. A successful enrollment of participants into a COLI program is critical to managing the overall costs of the benefit plan. Using Newport Group’s proprietary online system, the designated participants complete the insurance consent by utilizing e-signature. This online process significantly reduces the time required for a typical consent communication and has proven to greatly increase the success rate of participants completing the consent forms.
