Currently, most carriers still have some temporary restrictions in place. However, we are starting to notice these restrictions loosen; and carriers are offering coverage to more individuals than earlier this year. Guidelines are still subject to change but if you have someone who has been declined or postponed, now may be an excellent time to revisit these cases (i.e. clients who would be higher rated or older individuals who tend to have more minor concerns).
Secondly, carriers have expanded their capabilities to underwrite cases without traditional exams typically using electronic applications. As a broker of Resource Brokerage, you are able to access a tool called “iGO” which integrates with most of our Life carriers and products. This tool is the fastest way to get an application in front of an underwriter. In addition, it not only allows you to take applications remotely using "DocuSign"-like functionality, but it GREATLY reduces the time spent taking applications by reducing data entry to one time per client.

"I've been on both sides of the aisle - as a client and as a vendor. From my experiences I feel qualified to state that your product knowledge, training and sales expertise, and understanding of the client's needs were exceptional and invaluable to my selling success.
