OMAHA, Neb., October 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Breeze, an insurtech focused on disability insurance, has launched the Breeze agent portal that streamlines the way agents sell disability and critical illness insurance to consumers.
“Today, we are delighted to announce the launch of our Breeze Agent Portal, which allows insurance agents to leverage our underwriting technology. This means they can not only offer and apply for income protection policies seamlessly for their clients, but sometimes even instantly tie policies pending client eligibility,” said Colin Nabity, CEO and co-founder of Breeze.
The online agent portal advances Breeze’s mission to close the income protection coverage gap with smart, affordable insurance that can help protect individuals and families financially against unexpected injury and illness.
“Between ease of use and competitive commissions, the Breeze Agent Portal offers agents a modern opportunity to sell income protection products like disability insurance or critical illness insurance,” Nabity continued.
To grow its agent network, Breeze recently hired a longtime insurance manager Andrew Hamil as distribution manager. With the launch of the Breeze Agent Portal, Hamill is excited to be able to provide an online platform for agents who can now contribute to Breeze’s mission to close the income protection gap.
“It’s an exciting time for Breeze as we take another big step forward with the release of our new agent portal. were working to find out, quote and apply for disability and critical illness insurance,” Hamill began.
“The portal allows agents to take a more hands-on approach, executing quotes for their clients and helping them through the entire application process. Agents serve as trusted advisors to their clients, and we recognize the importance of those relationships. We built the Agent Breeze Portal for agents and their customers,” concluded Hamill.
While Americans are about three times more likely to become disabled during their working years than they are to die, the income protection coverage gap remains large. Less than a third of Americans have a disability insurance policy, while 52% of Americans have life insurance.
Additionally, many workers are now becoming self-employed, and the untapped opportunity for agents to supplement their arsenal with convenient digital income protection products continues to grow.
But outdated technology, a flawed underwriting experience, and a confusing vernacular around disability and critical illness insurance have alienated consumers and agents.
With a new agent portal, in addition to its educational resources, streamlined approach, and ability to quote and link policies in minutes, Breeze is poised to fill the gap.
“Historically, many agents have been intimidated by disability insurance – it was difficult to explain the product, it took an unnecessarily long time to sign up, and it lacked the technology to create a seamless process for the agent and The Breeze Agent Portal helps address these issues,” Nabity said.
Breeze is a mission-driven insurtech company focused on closing the income protection gap. Leveraging industry expertise and innovative technology, our friendly remote team is creating a better way for individuals and families to be financially prepared for unexpected injuries or illnesses. Insurance policies offered by Breeze can be used to help with lost paychecks, large medical bills, and more.
