ALEXANDRIA, VA, August 31, 2021—LegacyArmour is the newest company partner of the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America's Agents Council for Technology (ACT). LegacyArmour partners with independent insurance agencies to protect client information and provide digital legacy planning facilitation.
“ACT is excited to welcome LegacyArmour as a supporting partner," says Ron Berg, ACT executive director. “Keeping information secure is paramount for agencies and their clients across the country. At the same time, communication and access to insurance information in the event of a client's passing is a pain point for many family members. We're looking forward to LegacyArmour's unique, security-driven perspective on the dual issue of safeguarding and streamlining data."
LegacyArmour's information protection and delivery technology, for which it has three patents pending, guards clients information and delivers it securely once loved ones need access, collaborating with independent insurance agents to protect clients' assets and address issues such as unclaimed life insurance benefits. By storing a customer's important information in a vault that only they and their intended recipient can access, LegacyArmour ensures that critical information is passed to others in the future when they need it most, but is completely secure until that time. The company's founders launched the service after both of them personally lost family assets and spent years searching for missing policies and accounts. They later discovered that this was more common than they thought and founded LegacyArmour to ensure that others didn't have to live through the same struggles.
“We know what a gift it is to ease a difficult time for family members by ensuring personal information is delivered seamlessly and securely," says Sahar Ismail, CEO of LegacyArmour. “We're eager to partner with ACT as part of our ongoing commitment to help independent agencies deliver valuable peace of mind to their clients. As an organization focused on cybersecurity and information integrity, we look forward to collaborating with agents to bring real world value to their clients that they can't get anywhere else."
