What Does The Spring Venture Group AEP Team Do?

In short, our AEP team is a critical component in delivering value to our customers during our busiest time of year – they help drive our success and have an amazing experience while they’re here! Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) allows certain Medicare beneficiaries to take action on their policies who aren’t able to do so at any other point of the year. This time of year carries massive importance for our business, United Medicare Advisors. Not only is it the busiest time of year for the licensed agents, it also presents a unique opportunity for our AEP Team to work in a seasonal setting with a proven business while potentially earning a substantial income.

Initial Training & Growth

Our AEP team, with a start date in early July, begins their SVG career like any other UMA sales team, in the training room. This three-week process provides great insight into topics necessary for being a competent and successful Medicare advisor. After training, agents can confidently speak with Medicare beneficiaries from around the country.

Support From The Organization

From day one, our AEP Team receives the support needed to set them up for success. Our licensing team handles all licensing and appointments for a variety of carriers in states throughout the country. This means our AEP team has a variety of options to provide for potential clients. After completing training, we assign each agent a Sales Coach and a Sales Manager. While the Coach and Manager play different roles, they are both fully committed to the agent’s success. It truly is a team effort that mirrors our culture at large.

Who The AEP Works With

During AEP, a variety of leads come through our system. From those just beginning Medicare, to those who’ve had the same plan for years but are seeing rising monthly premiums, our UMA licensed agents can help anyone. With a huge panel of top-rated carriers at their disposal, our agents can find the right carrier at the right price for just about anyone.

MLS Works Day With Sporting KC

On Earth Day 2017, over 40 SVG employees rolled up their sleeves to help clean Swope Park alongside our Sporting Kansas City partners. This event was part of the second annual “Greener Goals” Earth Day week of service, as part of MLS WORKS. Throughout the week leading up to Earth Day, every major league soccer team partnered with local charitable organizations and spent time giving back to their communities in eco-friendly ways.

This year’s efforts for Sporting KC focused on removing wild invasive honeysuckle from the Swope Park woods. Swope Park relies on hundreds of volunteers throughout the year to keep their grounds well-kept for visitors from around the country and world!

Watch our recap video:

In addition to Greener Goals, SVG employees helped with SKC’s “Recycle Your Game”. During this event, over 70 kids were able to snag recycled soccer equipment donated by people, business, and other groups in Kansas City.

Why is SVG Hiring an AEP Team?

Our AEP team hiring is a direct result of the tremendous growth and opportunity we have here at SVG!

Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) runs from October 15th through December 7th. During this time, a substantial percentage of the approximately 55,000,000 Medicare beneficiaries around the country research and apply for new plans. This time of year yields massive opportunity for the nationally-licensed insurance agents at our company, United Medicare Advisors (UMA).

With each passing AEP, our approach to helping clients is further refined. This year we will help thousands of people make a great decision with their Medicare insurance through the process of comparison shopping. UMA is an innovative organization, and this is no more present than in the sales process. Through a combination of proprietary technologies, UMA agents access price quotes from top-rated insurance carriers and walk clients through a simple application process, all over the phone!

This year, Spring Venture Group is hiring its first ever sales team specifically for the Annual Enrollment Period. We see this as a unique opportunity for individuals to gain sales experience within a proven organization and take advantage of significant earnings potential. Consistent with all SVG sales hires, the AEP Team will go through our three-week training process beginning in June and will be assigned a Sales Coach and Sales Manager after training to fully set them up for success. On top of all that, successful AEP Team members may receive offers for permanent employment!
