This one time I...bent down on one knee behind a peaceful looking alligator basking in the Florida sunshine for a close up photo. A passerby told me what I did was stupid, because the gator can jump six feet into the air and use its tail to whack my head off!

Q: What were your biggest accomplishments last year?

A: In 2020, our team helped secure a unique partnership with Brighthouse Financial to launch an accelerated-underwriting term life insurance policy option exclusive to our marketplace. The launch happened to coincide with the height of the COVID pandemic, when in-home medical exams typically required for underwriting were limited or suspended — and meant Policygenius was able to help people get covered when they needed it most.
