CSI Life Has Announced Huge Rate Reductions Effective October 1

Attention all CSI Life agents in Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania: The company that has delivered one of the most stable rate structures in the industry, CSI Life, has announced huge rate reductions effective October 1. These game-changing rates are as strong as steel and primed for an incredible AEP. Below is an example of the rate reductions at age 67 for both Plan G and Plan N:


In case you missed it, CSI Life has a revamped commission structure. Rather than the previous flat-fee commission structure, CSI Life has moved to the percentage-based model that you are accustomed to with most carriers. Check your new contract or contact your Cornerstone Senior Marketing sales rep to see what your new commission level is at.


Kick off your AEP selling season with these revamped rates and earn yourself a serious raise this fourth quarter.

Issue 20 or more Medicare Supplement cases with CSI Life between 10/1 and 12/31 and receive $2,500 on top of your current commissions.

Issue 40 or more CSI Life Medicare Supplement cases between 10/1 and 12/31 and receive $5,000 on top of your already industry leading commissions.

So place your business this AEP with the carrier that keeps clients for life—CSI Life. Begin writing an e-application today by logging on to CSIeapp.com.
