In the end, we want to do what is best for the client...so we want to make sure that our team is the most knowledgeable we can be.

The moment you stop improving is the moment you start failing. Secura Consultants has prided itself for not only fulfilling the needs of advisers and clients but going above and beyond to find the best income protection solutions at an affordable price and providing top-tier customer service. However, there's always room for improvement, which is why the entire Consulting Team is working towards or has earned their Disability Income Associate (DIA) designations.
"The idea was brought to our team by our Customer Experience Committee in response to the question, 'How can we improve and serve our clients at an even higher level?' We're always striving to be a leader in the industry, to be a great resource to better serve the needs of our industry, and the DIA designation is one way we can stand out. It signifies that our brokerage consultants have a thorough understanding of the health care industry, the role of disability income insurance, how it protects individuals from financial loss, and the underwriting process. We're very excited for the rest of our team members to complete their certifications," said George Davidson, Chief Executive Officer.
The DIA designation program is a three-stage certification process that educates insurance professionals on the risks and costs associated with disability. It signifies insurance professionals and financial planners have increased knowledge of the health care industry and the role disability income insurance plays in protecting individuals from the financial burdens that accompany serious physical injuries and severe health afflictions. Professionals with this designation fully understand employer-sponsored disability programs ranging from sick leave benefits to long-term disability income plans; they also learn how disability income insurance fits into retirement, estate, and long-term care planning.
"In the end, we want to do what is best for the client. It's their life, their income, their policy so we want to make sure that our team is the most knowledgeable we can be to help them find the right policy at the right price for their needs. The DIA designation course is a great resource and developmental tool for our brokerage consultants to further their understanding of disability income insurance and the health care market," said Matthew Riordan, Senior Brokerage Consultant.
Currently, four of the six members of the Consulting Team have their certifications: George Davidson, Founder and CEO; Nicole Blodgett, Vice President and Director of Consulting; Matthew Riordan, Senior Brokerage Consultant; and Erik Sand, Brokerage Consultant. Brokerage Consultants, Derek Zabel and Mitch Pajcic are working towards their DIA designations and aim to be certified by the first of January.
About the DIA Designation
The DIA designation is co-sponsored by America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), the International DI Society, the National Association of Health Underwriters (NAHU), and the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors (NAIFA).
