Legal & General has developed an alternative to their traditional paper life insurance application, giving your clients a better way to get the life insurance protection they need with the simple, fast, and personalized process they want.

After July 31, Legal & General will reject traditional paper LIA (ICC08-LIA and state variations except for NY). All applications must be submitted with either: 

  • The digital application through the Horizon platform or
  • The new LIA (ICC17-LIA and state variations for CA, DE, FL, ND, SD) — an alternative to the traditional paper LIA available in the forms section of their Partner Dashboard
