Alphabet Soup by Medicare

We have Medicare A, B, C, D and Supplements A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M and N. That's only because Medicare has gotten rid of Supplements H, I J twice and now E. So, is it any wonder that people who do not deal with this and even those who do, get confused as to whether we are talking about Medicare benefits or Medigap types. We sort all this out and have the Producer leave with a better grasp as to what Medicare's identifying designations mean. Come enjoy the alphabet soup. Fee $60

Basics of The Reverse Mortgage

An introduction to an incresaingly popular financial device heavily advertised by compensated celebrity spokespersons. The message in the advertising is but the tip of the proverbial iceberg so far as reverse mortgages are concerned. One needs to first realize that that a reverse mortgage is after all a loan, not a gift or an entitlement. There are a lot of variables and moving parts to these. This course will break the ice and afford financial professionals the information they need to answer customer's questions. IA and NE: 4 general. Fee $45

Long Term Care...Is It Worth It?

This course deals with both traditional long term care options from assistance in home to clinical nursing care. We show how nursing homes are getting Medicare to pay for long term care albeit the fact that Medicare steadfastly claims that they do not pay for long term care. We also look at Iowa's Asset Preservation (Partnership) and Nebraska's Long Term Care Partnership programs. This course is a comprehensive look at traditional long term care options and is a valuable resource regardless of whether you work in the long term care market or just need information on a personal basis. This 6 hour course satisifes the 4 hour requirement for Iowa, but does not for Nebraska. Fee $90

Tax Issues for Life and Health

We cannot give legal advice, but we are expected to be able to explain an insurance policy, which is a legal document, to our customers. We cannot give tax advice either, but nearly every product we sell has or could have tax consequences attached to it. We are expected to know how our products work and that includes the tax issues. One popular question with "market conduct" people is "Did you explain the potential tax issues of this transaction to the customer?" So, while we do not give tax advice, we are expected to be able to give tax information and answer our customers questions. This course will surprise many with the amount of tax issues we are often involved. Fee $75

Third Party Administration

With the Affordable Health Care Act still the law of the nation, many companies are evaluating the risk posed to their employees and what can be done from a management level to reduce and/or midify them. Therefore, more companies are encorporating health awareness programs and along with them the viability of self-insuring with third party administration. The experience underwriting process used with the self-insured company makes this an attractive alternative to traditional group insurance. Fee $45

Universal Life

Universal Life has truly evolved into a Rube Goldberg machine. Goldberg was a Pulitzer prize cartoonist who drew very complicated machines designed to do one very simple thing. And Universal Life is a classic example. Too many moving parts, a complete overhaul of what we have come to know as 'whole life' insurance. A different cost basis. A different cash flow. An elaborate set of elaborate rules. And then the IRS got involved. For those newer to the profession, you won't believe what all went on in th e'80's with this product. Those who survived all this think I'm doing stand-up comedy...I assure you there was nothing funny about it. Either way...you'll enjoy the history lesson. Fee $45

Viaticals, Life Settlements & Accelerated Benefits

The commercial tells the public just enough to cause a more serious problem then their plan proposes to solve. This class goes into an indepth study of just what these commercials are trying to say, why they are misleading and what the consequences of such actions may be. IA and NE: 6 general. Fee $90
