On September 25, Teachers Life launched their online product portfolio using services from Acceptiv.

Teachers Life is a Canadian Fraternal Benefit Society with a 75-year history, focusing on the education community. Their new product portfolio, designed by Acceptiv, is a simple term product available as any term from 10 years to 30 years up to age 70 and sums assured of up to $500,000. This product is fully underwritten and as such is very competitive in the Canadian market.

Purchasing insurance from Teachers Life is straightforward; customers can select a desired sum assured or premium, if they are not sure the system also features a simple-to-use needs analysis calculator.

Teachers Life is the first company to sell life insurance exclusively online. A bold step from them, but one that we believe will be the start of a trend. Other life insurers selling online either sell simplified issue products, with a significantly inflated premium, or complete the majority of their business with a manual process.

Acceptiv provides product design and the software to manage the online customer experience.
