Service Turnaround Times Survey — North America

For Individual Life Insurance and Annuities


For 2016, LOMA will be taking this time to update the Service Turnaround Times Survey questionnaires for both Individual Life Insurance and Individual Annuity to make sure that it remains relevant and continues to meet the needs of our members. We will also be evaluating the methods that we use to collect the data and report the results back to our participants to make it more user-friendly. The updated survey will resume in 2017.

We need your input! For the survey questionnaire updates, we are seeking volunteers from our member companies to provide input on the questions that will be on the new version of the surveys. Please click here if you or someone else from your company would like to be contacted with additional information about providing input on the survey questionnaire updates.
