NEW BUSINESS PROCESSIndividual*
The New Business process can take between 3-5 months depending on underwriting and the response time of both you and your client.
*Guideline, not required - If you are writing an individual case, the client should have a minimum net worth of at least $5M and an annual income of approximately $250K or greater.
**Guideline, not required - If you are writing a case on an Employee Retention and Retirement Strategy, then the company should have a valuation of a least $5M and have approximately 150% in liquidity of whatever the 7-year peak collateral is. (Collateral used is cash or cash equivalent.)
Qualified funds cannot be used as collateral. If the client or company have real estate assets they can go through their banker and get a Letter of Credit (LOC). The bank would then charge them anywhere from 1-2% annually for the LOC.

Entity Set-up & Formal Application
Once HBC receives the tentative health offer, we will email this to you. This will include the potentially updated case design and formal application. You can go over the new numbers from the case design with your client if they have changed.

Single Purpose LLC
A majority of clients choose an LLC. HBC can assist in creating the LLC for a $275 fee (in addition to state fees).

If the insurance carrier approves the application, then financing must be secured. If financing is approved, which normally takes around 1 week, then loan documents will be sent to be signed and the policy is funded and delivered.
