Best Practices for Paperless New Business Transactions

As we have all seen in the news, companies in the US are contending with contingency plans surrounding the coronavirus. Workforces are moving to remote locations in order to conduct business.  We want to make sure that our brokerage community is prepared by being up to date with electronic new business process. 

We encourage you consider adopting these practices in light of the recent environment.  Not only will this help the communities that are impacted, but it will reduce cost and increase efficiency in processing your business overall.  Here are a few New Business Best Practices you can implement when submitting your business:



EZ-app is MassMutual’s electronic application system used to collect and submit whole life, term and disability applications.  The system is intuitive with wizard-based entry and allows for eSignature.  For instructions on how to submit EZ-app applications, please see our EZ-App Process for Brokers resource guide.



Coverpath is MassMutual’s online life insurance platform that helps advisors reach and serve clients who prefer a digital purchasing experience from quote to issue, but also value the guidance of an advisor.  Key features include algorithmic underwriting, shareable and responsive online application and self-service capabilities.
