  • Quick Quotes have evolved to be as the name implies, a quick quote, often used for rate quoting and initial illustrations. The "I got a guy" information is usually very limited however, an estimate of the underwriting class can be provided. The information is sent to a carrier's Quick Quote team by email. No attachments are allowed. It is a "quick" assessment and usually received back in 24 to 72 hours.

  • An Informal Application, often called a Trial App, is a beneficial way to obtain a tentative underwriting assessment from IDA-KC's underwriter or from a carrier's underwriter. Gathering the medical evidence for assessment of the client's insurability is the place to start the risk assessment process. Our underwriter, and medical director if needed, will review the IDA informal application, order records, make an initial assessment and determine the carrier(s) that would offer the best final underwriting decision. Upon the receipt of the records ordered (or those you have available), the process will take 7-10 days for an initial offer.
