Rod Frizzell, Final Expense
After seeing great expansion in the Final Expense marketplace, especially with the implementation of the immensely popular Legacy Safeguard marketing system, The Brokerage, Inc. found itself in need of a highly qualified individual to oversee the area. The Brokerage team has selected Rod Frizzell—former Western Regional Sales Manager for Reliance Standard Life.
A quick look at the available statistics underlines the need for a Final Expense policy in place at The Brokerage, Inc. In fact, the primary reason Americans purchase life insurance is to cover burial and final expenses. Plus, seniors are America’s fastest growing market and many of them will need assistance with Final Expense planning! It seems there is huge potential and little saturation in this market.
“Final Expense is a special product for a special time,” said The Brokerage, Inc. President Mike Smith, “It’s designed to make a person’s final wishes come true and make the grieving process easier by leaving a lasting legacy instead of additional expenses. The Brokerage is more than pleased to have Rod Frizzell on board as head of the new department. Amongst other things, it’ll really allow us to continue to expand our senior insurance product portfolio.”
With a degree in finance and insurance from The University of Arkansas, Frizzell started his career in St. Louis with the Home Life Insurance Company. Five years later, he was promoted to Regional Sales Manager of the Dallas office. In 2005, he went to work for Reliance Standard Life to help start their Limited Medical Division. In 2006, he was promoted to Western Regional Sales Manager to handle sales for half the country. He currently lives in Highland Village, Texas with his wife and is eager to jump into Final Expense territory with both feet.
The primary marketing system Frizzell will be using to spearhead this new division is Legacy Safeguard—an inclusive software and planning service that makes the transition into Final Expense that much smoother. Legacy Safeguard Membership Benefits include family information storage, discounts on Last Will and Testament/Power of Attorney documentation and discounts on flowers as well as funeral home and travel assistance.
“Because most agents and brokers do not like to bring up the topic of their clients’ funeral services, the Legacy Safeguard program allows you to break the ice and broach the subject,” said Frizzell, “There is no charge for the agent to provide this service to their client. When you look at the demographics of The Brokerage Inc.’s business, Final Expense is a natural fit.”
