2024: Unprecedented Opportunity in Insurance as Record Boomers Hit Retirement

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Wed, Jan 24, 2024 @ 11:05 AM

boomers-1

In 2024, the insurance industry is poised to experience a significant surge in demand, thanks to a record number of Baby Boomers reaching retirement age. This demographic milestone opens up a vast opportunity for insurance sales, particularly in areas directly relevant to retirees. Products like Medicare Advantage, Medicare supplements, long-term care insurance, and life insurance policies that offer financial security and peace of mind to seniors are likely to see increased interest.

As this age group transitions into retirement, their focus shifts towards managing health expenses, securing lifelong income, and ensuring a legacy for their loved ones, making them ideal candidates for these types of insurance products.

Moreover, this shift isn't just about numbers; it's about changing needs and priorities. Financial planning services, annuities, and final expense insurance are also areas ripe for growth, as more Boomers seek to safeguard their retirement savings and plan for the future. Insurance agents and companies who can effectively communicate the value and relevance of their products to this demographic stand to benefit significantly.

The opportunity is here!

The role of an independent insurance agent catering to the senior demographic offers more than just a career; it presents a pathway to a fulfilling, flexible, and financially rewarding profession. In the face of the growing senior market, the ability to generate residual income, and the autonomy of being your own boss, this career path stands out as an excellent choice for those looking to make a positive impact while building a sustainable business. As the population ages, the need for knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated Medicare plan agents will only grow, making now an ideal time to step into this rewarding field.

Work with a trusted partner

We take pride in providing our agents with high quality senior insurance products that bring a sense of security and peace of mind to the nation's exploding senior population. Our experienced insurance marketing team provides our agents with a robust product portfolio, game-changing technology and unrivaled support. We look forward to showing you how we can personalize our services to help grow your business.

URGENT: Take Action to Prevent a CMS Rule Change

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Tue, Jan 02, 2024 @ 02:05 PM

important request-1CMS has proposed new regulations that will impact agent and broker compensation – as well as potentially disrupt the FMO support model. Time is running out for your voice to be heard and influence the final rule!

Precision Senior Marketing is actively engaging with CMS, and subsequently lawmakers in DC, to influence the final language of the proposed rule. The first and primary method to influence the final rule is through the comment letter process. Comment letters on this proposed rule are due to CMS no later than January 5th at 5PM ET.

As a critical stakeholder, we encourage you to write your own letter to CMS explaining the significant value that Agents and FMOs provide to American seniors in MA distribution and post-enrollment support. Your efforts here can play a vital role in shaping the final rule that CMS will enact. To help you draft an effective 1-page comment letter, we have provided detailed guidance on yourFMO.com.

GUIDANCE ON HOW TO DRAFT YOUR LETTER – CLICK HERE
(Note: See the FAQ ”I’m an agent – how can I get involved”.)

NOTE: CMS discounts form / templatized letters – so to ensure the greatest impact of your submission, we have provided bullets for you to consider to include or summarize, in your words, for your own unique letter. This should allow you to craft an impactful letter in as little as 10 minutes.

CREATE AND SUBMIT YOUR LETTER TO CMS – CLICK HERE

Will you join us in the effort to protect agents, brokers, and FMOs – and educate Washington on the vital role we play in ensuring consumers are placed in the right plan for their healthcare needs?

Understanding the Proposed CMS Rules

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Wed, Dec 27, 2023 @ 11:59 AM

Understanding the Proposed CMS Rules

As you’re aware, CMS recently issued proposed amendments to its regulations governing the 2025 Medicare Advantage Program (MA) and Medicare Prescription Drug Benefit Program (PDP). Click here to read the proposed rules.

As conversations about these proposed rules have continued with our partners and throughout our industry, there remains much confusion surrounding the impact these proposed rules may have on our industry. As such, we’ve prepared a FAQ page designed to clarify our interpretation of the rules and how you should view them.

This matter impacts everyone. In collaboration with our partners at Amerilife and our Carrier Partners, we are actively engaged in discussions with CMS to convey our concerns about the proposed rule and its negative implications for Medicare.

The deadline for submitting comments on the proposed rule to CMS is approaching quickly. We encourage you to take the opportunity to write and send your own letters to CMS and your elected officials to make your voice heard.

    DEADLINE TO COMMENT IS JANUARY 5, 2024    

thnak you for your support

SUBMIT COMMENTS TO CMS

We appreciate your dedication to serving your clients, and in turn, we are devoted to supporting you. United, we can strive to prevent CMS from implementing this proposed policy. Thanks for your assistance.

The Rewarding Path of Selling Medicare Plans as an Independent Insurance Agent

Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Thu, Dec 21, 2023 @ 02:48 PM

The insurance industry, especially in the realm of Medicare plans, presents a landscape brimming with opportunities for those seeking a blend of autonomy, financial stability, and the satisfaction of providing a valuable service. As an independent insurance agent specializing in Medicare plans, you stand at the forefront of a rapidly growing market, offering vital services to a demographic that is expanding each year: seniors.

The Expanding Senior Market

The demographic landscape of the United States is undergoing a significant shift. With the Baby Boomer generation reaching retirement age, there is an unprecedented increase in the population of seniors. Statistics indicate that by 2030, all Baby Boomers will be over the age of 65, thereby expanding the senior market substantially. This growth translates into a growing need for Medicare plans, tailored to meet the diverse health care needs of the aging population.

Unlike many other professions, where income is directly tied to the hours worked, Medicare plans offer the potential for earning a recurring income on policies sold. This means that each policy sold can continue to provide income for years, compounding over time as you build your client base. This structure offers not only a steady income stream but also the peace of mind that comes with financial stability.

Autonomy and Flexibility

Being an independent agent means being your own boss. This autonomy allows you to set your own schedule, choose your clients, and create a work-life balance that suits your lifestyle. Whether you prefer to work from home, set up an office, or be on the move, the flexibility inherent in this career path supports a variety of working styles and preferences. This level of independence is particularly appealing to those who thrive in an environment where they can take charge of their business growth and direction.

The satisfaction of providing a service that helps people understand and access the healthcare they need cannot be overstated. It’s a role that not only benefits your clients but also brings a deep sense of personal fulfillment.

The opportunity is here!

The role of an independent insurance agent selling Medicare plans offers more than just a career; it presents a pathway to a fulfilling, flexible, and financially rewarding profession. In the face of the growing senior market, the ability to generate residual income, and the autonomy of being your own boss, this career path stands out as an excellent choice for those looking to make a positive impact while building a sustainable business. As the population ages, the need for knowledgeable, compassionate, and dedicated Medicare plan agents will only grow, making now an ideal time to step into this rewarding field.

PATHWAY

With approximately 10,000 individuals in the United States becoming eligible for Medicare each day, finding the right Field Marketing Organization (FMO) to partner with is crucial for achieving success. PSM goes above and beyond to empower independent agents, agencies, and brokers by offering unparalleled insurance products, exceptional back-office support, and a wealth of valuable tools and resources.

We take pride in providing our agents with high quality senior insurance products that bring a sense of security and peace of mind to the nation's exploding senior population. Our experienced insurance marketing team provides our agents with a robust product portfolio, game-changing technology and unrivaled support. We look forward to showing you how we can personalize our services to help grow your business.

Precision Senior Marketing was founded in 2006, in Austin, Texas. In the intervening time with almost two decades of experience, PSM has grown to a nationwide footprint, with a mission to empower agents to honestly and ethically help people live longer, healthier and more financially secure lives.
