Credit unions are attracted to the proven methodology that Affinion has refined over the past 40 years. A key indicator of an insurance block's performance is Premium Per Total Membership (PPTM). By this metric, ABG's performance is roughly double the average of competitors in the market, often within 90 days.

The HAP Program pays cash benefits directly to the member in the event of hospitalization due to a covered accident. Insurers may receive as much as $200 for each day they are hospitalized. Members may accept a 60-day trial period at no cost before deciding to purchase the supplemental insurance.
The Recuperative Care Plan pays post-hospital care and household expenses most insurance plans are not designed to cover – payable as a lump sum based on the number of days in the hospital. Members may accept a 60-day trial period at no cost before deciding to purchase the supplemental coverage. This program adds coverage for sickness – with no exclusions for any type of sickness or pre-existing illness when the doctor orders a hospital stay.
This whole life insurance builds cash value with each premium payment – a living benefit your members can use to pay their premiums, borrow, or even cash in their policy. The insurance provides up to $20,000 coverage with NO physical exam, NO medical questions, and NO exclusions for pre-existing health conditions. The coverage goes beyond accident-only to cover death from any cause.

To create a successful marketing strategy for member engagement, there are key factors credit unions should take into consideration. How do you define your target audience? How should you refine your marketing efforts? How do you refocus your strategy to take advantage of those opportunities? Each generation of consumers makes different purchasing decisions and is therefore more receptive to certain marketing efforts. By understanding who your target audience is and their demographic, credit unions will be able to craft specific marketing strategies to become more profitable.
