Lower Rates, Larger Discounts
Effective Oct. 5, 2023, we’re adjusting our rates and increasing discounts for The Standard’s fully underwritten Platinum Advantage to help you sell more.
We’ve reduced Platinum Advantage rates for many occupations. You’ll see more competitive rates for men ages 41 and up for non-medical classes (5A, 4A, 3A, 2A, B and A). Plus, we’re introducing state-specific pricing, which allows us to offer more competitive rates in many states. Rates will decrease by an additional 5% in 18 states and will increase in six. See the full list of state-specific rate changes below.
|State-Specific Rate Changes|

Please note these changes are not yet available in NY, FL, CA, SD, ND, WY, MT or SC.
Additionally, we’ve increased rates for the Cost of Living Adjustment rider and 3D occupation classes.
New and Bigger Discounts
We’ve increased the Preferred Occupation Discount* to 20% to enhance competitiveness for professional and executive occupations.
And we’ve added a new 5% eApply Discount.* We know using online tools helps save time for you and your clients. With quick fill-and-sign features and built-in checks, the eApp and Electronic Medical Questionnaire help applicants apply for individual disability insurance quickly and avoid time-consuming errors.
Our newest discount provides 5% off Platinum Advantage when applicants use both The Standard’s eApp and Electronic Medical Questionnaire. It’s a no-brainer to move all IDI applications online.
All this means applicants can now combine discounts for up to 50% off Platinum Advantage! Check out the IDI Premium Discounts flyer to see the huge savings you can offer your clients.
