Everyday Life, an insurance platform on a mission to get life insurance to everyone who needs it, is partnering with Independent Financial Partners (IFP) to bring its innovative life insurance solution to IFP’s Institutional Services group network of community banks and their customers. The new insurance offering will support the banks’ initiatives to improve the financial health and resilience of their retail customers, forging deeper relationships with them.
There are an estimated 102 million uninsured and underinsured Americans, according to the insurance industry research firm, LIMRA. Up to now, insurers have been challenged to find ways to sell affordable policies to families with average incomes. Everyday Life is the first company to offer an end-to-end platform that saves customers money, time and hassle with personalized recommendations and life insurance plans that bank customers can purchase directly. The platform’s proprietary Predictive Protection technology is plug-and-play, making it simple for banks to offer expert financial planning services without adding personnel or licensed insurance agents. The Everyday Life platform will complement the service offering across the IFP network of banks and credit unions.
“Covid made many more Americans aware of the need for life insurance coverage, and more moderate income families want to protect their loved ones. The Everyday Life platform will enable community banks to lean into their mission to serve their people in the way in which they expect: seamless, digital experiences that are purpose-built to enhance their customers’ financial well-being,” says Jake Tamarkin, CEO, Everyday Life.
“Community banks are looking for ways to offer consumer-centric solutions that are delivered digitally, now that more customers are banking digitally. This partnership with Everyday Life helps banks remain relevant to their customers,” says Dan Overbey, Divisional President, Institutional Services, IFP. IFP is rolling out the Everyday Life offering now.
