Our underwriting approach

A smooth experience for you and your clients

Our easy application process gives your clients protection fast — and you can feel confident that you will get a competitive decision the first time.

Our underwriters continually research and develop ways to improve the underwriting process for your clients. Their experience is the most important consideration as we develop new underwriting processes and service standards.

With Securian Financial, you have direct access to underwriters to talk through the process and ask questions, helping eliminate confusion and speed up the process.

Personalized underwriting for your clients

Securian Financial currently offers two underwriting approaches:

WriteFit Underwriting™

Our WriteFit Underwriting program utilizes tools and techniques that predict relative mortality based on a number of behaviors. No need for a medical exam or blood test, so your clients experience a less invasive underwriting process than traditional underwriting.

When applying with WriteFit and WriteFit Express, your healthiest clients could be approved for coverage in as little as 24 hours after completing the tele-interview.
