August 21, 2018

RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 21, 2018--Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) has announced a more streamlined and customizable application process for its Lincoln MoneyGuard® II policies. The enhancements make it simpler and faster for customers to get the important protections of MoneyGuard, a flexible universal life insurance solution offering multiple benefits that can be utilized based on a client’s needs, including a death benefit, reimbursement of long-term care (LTC) expenses or return of premiums options.

The new application process improves the customer experience with new forms for non-medical information that advisors can complete on behalf of clients and with greater efficiency. The enhanced process also now captures medical information earlier to determine underwriting eligibility of the applicant sooner.

“As a leader in linked benefit solutions, we continue to invest in this business to help ensure we’re delivering the best-possible experience to our customers and meet their ever-changing needs,” said Heather Milligan, Senior Vice President, Underwriting & New Business, Lincoln Financial Group. “The redesigned application package and process transforms the sale and purchase of the product, making it smarter, faster and more customizable with forms that are easier to complete, shorter interviews and greater flexibility in how customers submit information.”

Providing Customers Choice and Control

Based on preference, customers can choose to complete the medical portions of their application over the phone with a Lincoln representative, or by completing the paper forms with their advisor.

The new application process is the latest example of Lincoln’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the customer experience. Additional examples include Lincoln’s new online customer service chat capabilities and digital claims experience.
