Your first applications for each carrier MUST be submitted on a paper application. TransAmerica, United Home Life will not accept paper apps any longer, only eapps. UHL and TA will only allow eapps to be written with a writing number. The writing number will be issued once contracting paperwork has been fully processed.
Most carriers use a website called iPipeline to give Agents a central location for all carrier applications.
Once you have written your first application with a carrier, you will be assigned a producer or agent number for that specific carrier. You could continue to write paper apps if you choose, but it’s recommended that you start using e-Apps (electronic applications). Below, you’ll find more information on both methods so you can choose the method that you feel the most comfortable with.
