Why Read This Report

Life insurance gets a bad rap among Millennials. The purchase process is arduous, usually requiring a face-to-face meeting. That puts a lot of younger life insurance prospects on edge. Why? Because if they can buy their car insurance in 15 minutes or less, they should be able to do the same for life insurance. Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance (MassMutual) decided there needed to be a better way, and in May, it piloted Haven Life, a digital life insurance agency in Massachusetts; it has since expanded to eight other states. What can insurance eBusiness professionals learn from MassMutual's take on new distribution models? Keep the experience simple, immediate, and engaging.
