Los Angeles, CA, January 30, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- The deadline for free entry into the 2013 long term care insurance industry sales awards has been extended by the industry trade group.
"This is the premier achievement awards for insurance professionals who market long term care insurance protection," explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, the national trade group. "We have decided to extend the awards because insurers have received so many applications at the end of the year that processing is taking longer."
The awards program recognizes insurance professionals based on placed business. "It can take as long as two or three months for some applications to be approved and so it made sense to extend the deadline for free member entries to April 15, 2013," Slome explains.
Established in 1998, the Los Angeles, CA-based American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance is the national association serving insurance and financial professionals who provide long-term care financing solutions. This is the eleventh year that the organization has conducted the industry awards program. In addition, members of the organization have access to the nation's largest online Learning, Marketing and Sales Center where they can access long term care insurance sales support tools.
