OMAHA, Nebraska, April 30, 2012—Lincoln National Corporation, a leading provider of voluntary insurance products in the United States, announced that a portfolio of its voluntary products are now available through enrollment via the Common Census software platform. This collection consists of group voluntary lines of coverage, including critical illness, accident, term life, disability, and dental insurance. Common Census will support enrollment strategies for these Lincoln products, allowing employees to enroll in coverage with onsite benefit counselors or through a call center. A Web-based self-service portal, compatible with the use of Android phones, iPads or iPhones, is also available and can be accessed through any Internet connection.
“Common Census is well known in the industry for creating enrollment solutions on time and on budget for hundreds of insurance products,” said David Cirulis, Vice President of Voluntary Marketplace Strategy, Lincoln Financial Group. “But Common Census also aids us in our distribution. Most of the largest enrollment firms in the nation have discovered that Common Census provides an easy-to-use, effective enrollment tool backed by a great support team.” “Lincoln is a preferred carrier of independent benefits producers,” said Daniel Freund, Founder and President of Common Census, “so I was excited when we made an agreement to implement these initial five products. I am confident our software will help Lincoln and their customers improve their sales and bottom line by building volume with efficient acquisition at lower cost. We know that many of their producers will like the seamless transition from enrollment to online, year-round, 24/7 Web access for both core and voluntary benefits available with Common Census.”
