About NFP Fixed Annuities Sales Desk


The NFP Fixed Annuity Sales Desk was created in April of 2007.  Our shared vision was to create a Fixed Annuity Sales resource within the NFP, with the goal of serving all acquired and affiliated NFP firms with best in class fixed annuity sales concepts, case design and product suite.  NFP Member Firms and Member Organizations have access to 35+ carriers, representing the cream of the crop in Fixed Annuities.

As a Fixed Annuity specialist, ECA Marketing offers significant back office administrative support.  Applications packages and case design consultations are provided prior to the sale.  Once in house, applications are reviewed for good order status prior to being sent to the carrier.  Agents are notified if there are outstanding requirements and the pending status of the case. 1035 exchanges are tracked to ensure timely receipt by the receiving carrier.  Should there be an issue, there is also a dedicated resource to resolve the problem in a timely fashion.
