AFLAC and SuranceBay worked together to make submitting contracting paperwork even easier. Effective Thursday, May 11, 2022, ALL request types for Aflac Tier One will be submitted directly to the carrier after being processed in SureLC. AFLAC requires the integration for all SureLC submissions in order to streamline their onboarding process and prevent any delays in processing requests.
ALL Requests Uploaded Electronically
When you process any type of request through SureLC, you'll receive the merged.pdf form in your inbox as you normally do. However, there will now be a watermark on the PDF forms that indicate the forms have been electronically submitted to the carrier.
Contracting paperwork is submitted electronically every 10 minutes directly to AFLAC. So, upon follow-up with the carrier they should have everything to process the request shortly after you've submitted it.
This means that you should NOT forward the paperwork (email, fax, snail mail, etc.) to the carrier - they'll receive it directly from SureLC™ and they will process the request accordingly. This is designed to streamline the process for both your agency, your producers, and AFLAC to provide a quicker turn-around and more secure process for everyone involved.
⚠️ ALERT: ALL requests for a producer will be submitted electronically, including the initial and any subsequent requests. AFLAC does not accept any requests via email.
Carriers Included in the Integration
The following carriers are included in the electronic integration:
- Aflac Tier One
Please Note: this does NOT affect all products with AFLAC.....Just Final Expense & MedSupp through Tier One Insurance Company. All other products and AFLAC business channels will continue being sent via regular email through the standard AFLAC carriers.
Integration is REQUIRED for "Aflac Tier One"
AFLAC does not accept requests submitted via email. Therefore, in order to use the Tier One Insurance Company carrier in SureLC, agencies are required to submit via the integration. If your agency wishes to disable the integration for any reason, please contact:
