Howdy all. Quick question for the gurus out there. I am with Equis, but I haven't written a policy on myself yet.

Does anyone know what carriers would pay you upfront for writing a policy on YOURSELF or wife/family/etc? I know that American Amicable only pays you every month that you maintain the policy for that year.

Carriers like Columbian Financial Group, Mutual of Omaha, Foresters, National Life Group, or Phoenix?

Thanks in advance.

Some advance on your own business, some don't-Mutual of Omaha does, Foresters doesn't, don't know about the others.

Commission on Yourself? Re: Commission on Yourself?
When I first got my license, my first appointment was with Bankers Life Insurance Company of America. I paid my first month's premium, and they paid my premium for the first year. I would say the question is are you trying to get the commission or get the coverage?

Commission on Yourself? Re: Commission on Yourself?
Why is this important? Are you planning not to stay in the business?

Sorry this kind of question raises all sorts of red flags.
