State Life – June News Update

Web-based Illustration Software and PEC Rate Change

Illustrations created and submitted on our web-based illustration software via Sales Connection (iPipeline) prior to July 1, 2016 can be adjusted to accommodate slight case design changes (different premium amount, rated cases, age changes, etc) and will continue to reflect the pre-July 1, PEC rates when you go into “View My Cases.”

Illustrations run via Sales Connection after July 1, 2016, will need a “New Case” created in Sales Connection in order to quote the updated PEC rates. Important note: any adjustments made to the existing case in the “View My Cases” field will not reflect the new rates.

 All applications submitted to the Home Office after July 1, 2016 will receive the PEC rates regardless of the illustration date. Click here to read the PEC rate change announcement. To learn more about creating new cases and accessing existing cases in Sales Connection click here.
