Life Insurance Sales: August 2020

LIMRA tracks monthly sales in order to provide continuing insight into the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on individual life sales and applications.

Sales in August (the most recent month for which information has been compiled) continued the positive trend from July with a 4% increase in premium and 8% increase in policy sales.

Policy growth was driven primarily by large, direct-to-consumer carriers.

Premium growth was driven by indexed universal life, which lead on both a growth rate and overall dollar increase basis.

IUL premiums were driven by a one-time occurrence for one carrier and a new product introduction.

Two participants dropped their IUL product this year. Overall, just under half of IUL companies had a premium increase in August.

IUL policy gains were more widespread. VUL and whole life premiums also increased in August.

On a policy basis, term and whole life also increased.

Applications increased for all products except fixed universal life and variable universal life.

For companies able to respond, face-to-face application submissions dropped off in August after increasing in July while online/mobile applications continue to do better.

Face-to-face channels fared slightly better than in previous months, with a slightly higher percentage experiencing an increase.
