AFFIRM for Annuities is a user friendly annuity order entry and compliance platform offering advisors the ability to quickly start and finish an annuity contract, all online. The platform also provides distributors, such as broker dealers, banks, and brokerage agencies, the ability to easily manage the complex regulations required by both internal and external parties. AFFIRM for Annuities is currently used by thousands of organizations that submit billions of dollars of transactions through the platform each year.
Midland National will add its annuity products to the AFFIRM for Annuities platform to support the needs of their various annuity distribution channels.
