How do you qualify for an enhanced annuity? 

'Enhanced until proven standard...' The quick rule of thumb should be that it is worth assuming that everyone will qualify for an enhancement to their annuity income unless, through the fact-finding process, it can be proven otherwise.

Our top 5 tips that may help raise your chances of being able to deliver an enhanced annuity outcome for your client:
  1. Explain the importance of assessing health and lifestyle.
  2. Always assume they qualify until proven otherwise, filling out a Retirement Health Form without leaving any unanswered questions.
  3. Look for positive indicators.
  4. Investigate further.
  5. Seek certainty - don't leave things uncertain.
