Sentinel is a company out of Salt Lake City, and we have a great relationship with the people behind this company. They come from a Final Expense background – the company was started by funeral directors. Now, they have a very competitive Med Supp product.
Sentinel will write a Med Supp and Final Expense on the same app with no additional health questions! The app is incredible simple (they go back 2 years for heart and 2 years for cancer). There's a lot of give and take on the underwriting, which a lot of carriers have gotten away from.
Their G rates are as good as any G rates out there – very competitive, especially in IL.
Clients may sign via E-Signature or Telephone Signature. TELEPHONE SIGNATURE AVAILABLE 24/7 – 877-888-0352.
Telephone Signature is collected after the application is submitted. After the eApp is submitted and, if applicable, telephone signature is received, the agent will receive an e-mail that contains the underwriting decision.
