Some key excerpts from the broadcast:

“Our members and new applicants are very curious about the Chronic Illness Rider we rolled out in January of this year. The premiums are significantly lower than a true, stand-alone policy.”

-Tony Zerante, Director of Strategic Operations, WAEPA


“Our members have welcomed our $1.5 Million coverage option with open arms. Many members are adding our Chronic Illness Rider, as well”

-Tony Zerante, Director of Strategic Operations, WAEPA


“If you haven’t educated yourself, do so. Once you have all the details, you’ll be able to make an informed decision”

-Brian Kurrus, Certified Financial Planner®
