[Welcome Industry Radar readers!]
I had a brief conversation with another agent earlier. We were trading war stories about some of the frustrations we face in our business. Here is one of his.
He had been working with a family for 3 months. Husband, wife, 2 kids. Good income. Nice neighborhood.
No health insurance.
Yesterday he made another follow up phone call to see if they wanted to put in an application before rates go up in January.
No, he was told. They can't afford health insurance now. They just purchased a 2008 Suburban so it will be a while before they can fit health insurance in their budget.
