Wentworth Rose simplifies annuity application

IFA Wentworth Rose is simplifying the application process for people seeking higher annuity payments by combining the medical questionnaires they need to complete.

Instead of having to fill out up to seven different forms, clients of Wentworth will only have to complete one in order to receive a quotation from annuity providers.

Wentworth claims the move will prevent people who are eligible for enhanced rates from accepting standard terms to avoid reams of paperwork.
