Forethought expands preneed solutions with new Preneed Imminent Annuity

Forethought Life Insurance Company has launched a new Preneed Imminent Annuity, expanding the preneed product solutions available to funeral homes. Preneed Imminent Annuity provides a compelling solution for funeral homes and their customers when a death is expected within a year. These customers can effectively plan their final arrangements and funeral homes avoid commission chargebacks due to first-year death. The annuity can also be issued for ages up to 105 years old.

“The Preneed Imminent Annuity demonstrates Forethought’s commitment to the success of our funeral home partners by providing an alternative solution when preneed life insurance is not an attractive option,” said John Walls, Senior Vice President of Sales for the Life Division.

In conjunction with the annuity launch, a new combination enrollment form, which supports the sale of both the annuity product and life insurance product, rolled out. The combination enrollment form is simplified to two pages with four health questions and allows payment via check, credit card or APA.
