In this timely episode, we welcome Jon Whitacre, JD, CLU, ChFC, and director of Advanced Sales at Crump Life Insurance Services to explain why Connelly vs United States is so important to financial professionals, life insurance producers, and clients. He offers solutions to avoid what happened in this landmark case.
The Impact of State-Mandated Long Term Care Insurance on Your Clients
With Medicaid costs skyrocketing, states are taking action, mandating income taxes to provide for state-funded long term care insurance programs. This action will have a significant impact on the choices clients have for covering their long term care needs. In fact, some states are considering banning private LTC insurance in lieu of the state option. In this timely episode, Crump's Rick Stewart provides an update on which states are currently considering this action, and what you can do to serve your clients before it's too late.

In this powerful episode, Crump's Kenny Russell invites Principal's Tyler Huff to share his own, personal disability battle and how having income protection in place saved him and his family's finances.

In this episode, Adrienne Wilson, Senior Underwriting Consultant at Crump, shares valuable insight on how to approach what can be sensitive topics for you and your clients upfront.
Estate Planning for Women: The Opportunity to Attract and Assist This Underserved Market
It has been widely publicized that there has been a considerable shift in wealth in the U.S. to women. What's not often discussed is how underserved women are when it comes to financial planning.
