History We currently market products in 41 states EFES is a division of Senior Advisor Service, Insurance Services, Inc., a marketing organization since 1986 EFES began writing business in 2005 Our sustained success is fueled by: The emergence of one of the premier Final Expense marketers in the country! LeadPrograms CompetitiveProducts Proven Selling System Exceptional 24/7 Agent Support
Why Sell Final Expense? A simple sales process ensures that your closing ratio is very high. Final Expense is by far the quickest and easiest way to enter the insurance industry and start earning substantial income. An average full-time producer should realistically earn well over $100,000 a year. You are selling an insurance product that complements (rather than competes) with just about every other kind of insurance. The Final Expense target market is limitless! Every 7 ½ seconds someone is turning 50 years of age.
Why We LOVE The Final Expense Market! Highly-qualified Leads! Every lead you call on has requested information on exactly what you have to offer. The need exists! The target market for Final Expense Insurance is low to middle income retirees. Every one of these individuals needs some type of Life Insurance. One Call Close! Most Final Expense agents are able to complete the sale on the first visit. You wake up every day knowing you are providing a solution almost everyone needs! Final Expense Insurance is likely the only solution your client can qualify for and afford. The Final Expense market is the fastest growing demographic in the Nation.
Who is our target market? Seniors Ages 50-85 Blue collar retirees with low-income to mid-income levels People who are concerned about being a financial burden on their loved ones Advantages of working in the Final Expense Market Sales are quick and easy because you are not selling a sophisticated product You are in charge of your schedule – Make it to the soccer game, dance recital and plan a vacation ZERO Underwriting on Simplified Issue products Commissions are paid on a daily basis We will make sure you have a consistent lead flow each week

Mail Meetings Your PPL, In-House Lead Inventory, and Total Submitted Business for the month factor into the decision as far as the amount of outbound mail that will be requested. Paying close attention to your statistics. These numbers are important for getting more mail out and to become a better closer/producer.
