Studies show that people are happier and more engaged in their work when they feel their efforts serve a bigger purpose—that the products or services they provide make the world a better place in some way. For so many of us at FPG, that’s an important part of why we do what we do. And it comes not just from selling final expense insurance, a product we believe in, but from knowing that the insurance provider is a business that stands behind its commitments.
Going Above & Beyond
So it feels especially good to hear that Lincoln Heritage (LH) is going above and beyond in supporting families that have suffered terrible loss during the pandemic. In a letter from LH president, Alex Londen, we learned that “In the last several weeks, LH has paid out more than $2 million in COVID-19 specific claims…It represents hundreds of families assisted during a heartbreaking and chaotic period in the world.”
Promises Kept, No Matter What
What wasn’t in the letter was the fact that for many of these claims, the benefits were paid out even for policyholders who had only 1 or 2 payments, and in an expedited time frame, too. Many competitor insurers have not been as generous.
The reality is that the increase in claims and payouts will affect LH’s profitability for this year. “But to me, that is of little concern,” said Londen. “The people we serve are some of the country’s most vulnerable, and through no fault of their own, are more susceptible to the worst symptoms and outcomes.”
But Londen also reassures us that the company is in a stable and strong position and will remain that way, in no small part due to the commitment, passion and hard work of all of you.
Why It Matters
We are not creating a vaccine. We are not providing care on the front lines. We are not working the checkout lines or delivering packages. But we are doing something truly important: providing beneficiaries and families with peace of mind and compassionate support when the worst possible scenario happens to a loved one.
And working with a company that lives up to its promises, even in the most challenging circumstances, helps us all feel good about doing the right thing.
But that’s not the only way LH and FPG strive to be a respected source of employment and opportunity. Here are some of the other keys we live by.
