MINNEAPOLIS--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Imagine if buying term life and disability insurance was as simple as buying a box of cereal at your local grocery store.
“Family Christian knows good financial health allows families to live purpose-driven lives”
Two organizations, brightpeak financial™, a Christian, not-for-profit division of Thrivent for Lutherans, and Family Christian® retail stores think it can be just as easy to begin the process of getting covered. The two organizations have partnered to offer affordable term life and disability insurance packages, in three different sizes, to meet the needs of Christian adults, couples and families.
“Family Christian knows good financial health allows families to live purpose-driven lives,” Cliff Bartow, CEO of Family Christian. “However, many people find managing finances and preparing for their family’s future to be complicated, overwhelming and expensive. That’s why we’re partnering with brightpeak financial to strengthen young Christian families and individuals in Pittsburgh with Rise™ insurance starter kits.”
Rise™ insurance to lift your life, is an insurance starter kit by brightpeak financial that offers a range of affordable coverage to fit the needs of individuals at different stages of their life – whether they are single, married, or caring for a family. The three starter kits retail for $19, $29 and $39, which reflect the monthly premium for each insurance product that a typical person would pay. For example, the $39 starter kit offers both $200,000 of term life insurance coverage over a 20-year term and $2,000/month of disability income insurance (payable for up to two years) to age 67.
Rise insurance is uniquely packaged in a 3.5 in. by 5.5 in. starter kit, available in specially designed kiosks in Family Christian’s five retail locations in Pittsburgh, Monroeville, West Mifflin, Natrona Heights, and Cranberry Township.
“There is no sales pressure,” said Pam Moret, president and CEO of brightpeak financial. “Family Christian customers told us that buying insurance is complicated, stressful and expensive. Our Rise insurance starter kits are easy to understand, affordable, and put the customer in control of the process.”
Each Rise insurance starter kit includes a Rise Prepaid MasterCard® debit card issued by Metropolitan National Bank (Member FDIC), which can be redeemed with brightpeak financial as payment for the first month’s insurance premium based on the insurance product selected. Brightpeak requires the completion of a short phone questionnaire to determine eligibility. If the individual or couple does not qualify for insurance coverage based on its underwriting guidelines, the consumer can use the debit card to purchase other products from Family Christian or other retailers. Each Rise™ starter kit also includes a “Basics of Insurance” handbook to help customers better understand the value and benefits of term life and disability insurance products.
“There are many Christian couples and families throughout Pittsburgh who just need the basics,” added brightpeak’s Moret. “These are middle-income earners, many of whom don’t have a lot of extra money at the end of the month. They seek basic financial security to help build confidence in their ability to manage unexpected life events and to know that they and their loved ones will be protected if they’re met by an unexpected tragedy or illness. Our goal is to help build that confidence so that Christian adults, couples and families can focus on what really matters: leading purpose-driven lives.”
