Webline has added online enhanced annuity quotes via its portal from provider GE Life allowing advisers to obtain instant enhanced annuity quotes for clients who have pre-existing medical conditions.
Using the XML format designed specifically for online documents, advisers will now be able to capture full medical details of their client within the Webline platform.
Webline will then pass the information to GE Life, which will provide a real-time enhanced annuity quote based on these specific conditions.
The medical condition matching facility will cover 1,800 different medical conditions.
Webline chairman Paul Holland says: “We are pleased to offer this unique service to our users, giving them even more choice. Offering a facility that can cater for 1,800 medical conditions is a significant enhancement to the comparative online annuity data system we launched at the beginning of 2005.”
GE Life annuities product manager Matt Trott says: ”We are committed to streamlining the annuity purchase process and showing financial advisers that purchasing an enhanced annuity needn’t be complex.”
