Once you are appointed with the carriers, have your agent code, and full access to their website always use the eApp submission when possible. When you do the eApp the process verifies that your application is in “Good Order” before submitting.
Common mistakes made on the application – Always double check app before leaving:
Height and Weight (a lot of the apps hide this question) or if you ever need to rewrite on a different app
Along with policy replacements check to make sure you don’t need a senior form or disclosure.
Contact the carriers and they will ship you applications, folders, and marketing material for free.
If you are new agent following these steps to successfully completing and submitting your apps.
Scan and email your application to your manager to review prior to submitting.
Submit your application to the appropriate carrier.
Follow up within 48 hours if you have not received a confirmation from the carrier to make sure your app was “good order” and they received it.
