The Cost of Playing the Waiting Game

What If You Wait One Year Before Buying an Annuity?

Clients who decide to wait a year before buying an annuity may be missing out on big gains. Share a few examples to help them realize the benefits of compounded growth and tax deferral.

Coming Soon – Online Contract Delivery Through DocuSign

Who doesn’t want a faster, easier way to receive new annuity contracts? Later this year, our clients and producers will be able to review, sign, save, and print contracts through DocuSign. Delivering contract forms online will help you and your clients save time — and get contract requirements completed quickly.

Now Available – Inherited IRAs for Spouses

Due to the SECURE Act, we previously suspended sales of inherited IRAs. We are happy to announce as of Sept. 1, 2020, we will start accepting inherited IRAs for spouses only. At this time we are not accepting non-spousal inherited IRAs but will review this decision in the future.

Newsflash: Pre-Appointment Now Required in Pennsylvania

Effective immediately, producers in Pennsylvania must be licensed and appointed with The Standard before signing an application with us. We can’t process applications in the state if you aren’t appointed with us.

Get Extra Value When You Partner With Us

When doing business with an annuity provider, the interest rate is important. But remember, the little things we offer add value too, and make it easier for you and your clients to do business with us.
