Our phones are personally answered from 8-5 Central daily (8-4 on Friday’s) and your call will be directed as you request. We will do everything possible to put you in contact with the person you wish to speak with. You will never be “dumped” in a voicemail system without your permission.
  • Online Contracting – Never complete another contract again! By taking advantage of ECA’s free online system you will never have to fill out a contracting application by hand again. Complete an application online once and add carrier contracts as you need them. Documents are easily uploaded and stored and non-resident license renewals can be efficiently filed.

  • Individually Assigned Contracting Administrator – Your individually assigned Contracting Administrator is here to help you with all your contracting needs. When a contract is submitted, your license, E&O, Anti-Money Laundering, and direct deposit information are kept on hand through our comprehensive and secure archive system. Simply forward any updated information to us and we will update the carriers. The advantage to keeping this information on file not only applies to new submitted contracts but as carriers request these documents we will have them readily available.
  • Online Term Applications – ECA Marketing is an industry leader in innovations. We offer a true, paperless application process that makes your term life insurance business exceptionally efficient. This process drastically reduces the turnaround time and issues your cases quickly
  • New Business Processing – We are proactive with your business. Send your application to us and we’ll do the rest. Let us focus on the back-office administration so you don’t have to. We will check for missing requirements or errors made on paperwork before it is submitted to the carrier to help speed up the process. We will track your business until it is issued. Because of our high premium volume, we are premier partners with many of our carriers and are set up with special teams and dedicated points of contact in underwriting and new business. We will update you with case status based on your preferred method of communication; memo’s, emails, phone calls, etc.
  • Policy Status – Through ECA’s website you will be able to view your cases that are processed through our ECA office. Information such as client name, policy information, policy numbers, and follow up comments can be viewed. You may also inquire directly with your case manager through email or a phone call regarding your cases and follow ups.
  • ECA’s exclusive “App” for a Life App – Writing term insurance has never been easier. Download our exclusive “App” where you will be able to quote the best term rates available, complete a short client questionnaire, submit it, and you’re done.
