What is MDRT?

MDRT stands for million-dollar round table. It was founded in 1927 as a globally recognized, standalone association of the world’s top-selling insurance agents and financial services professionals. It kicks started as a meet between professionals who had made Rs.10 Lakhs worth of life insurance sales in their countries. Individuals are recognized from over 500 organizations across 70 nations globally for their contribution towards exemplary customer service while maintaining the highest ethical standards.  

MDRT fosters the talents shown by the best-performing life insurance agents and dedicates itself to building a network of members that use high-standard, professional approaches to insurance sales. MDRT currently accounts for over 50,000 of the world’s leading life insurance and financial services sales professionals.

MDRT in LIC

In the last year, LIC engaged over 3.5 Lakh new insurance sales agents taking their total salesforce to around 13.5 Lakhs. LIC has undertaken initiatives to introduce several reforms and professional development schemes for its life insurance sales agents. As such, the productivity of their agents is witnessing an increasing trend. Notably, LIC has surpassed its previously recorded First Year Premium Income to achieve the highest ever of Rs.56, 406 Crores in FY 2020-21 under its Individual Assurance Business. 

The impressive performance by LIC despite the challenging times surrounding COVID-19 can be attributed to leading performances by its best-selling life insurance agents. LIC rewards its best performers through commissions and recognitions at global platforms. 

Qualifying LIC life insurance agents who have demonstrated exceptional work ethic and client service are recognized as members of the MDRT or the million-dollar round table. These professionals can learn from the expertise of esteemed leaders in the MDRT board membership and hone their skills. It is noteworthy that in FY 2020-21, LIC created a pool of nearly 16,564 MDRT qualifiers; this is the highest ever recorded in the history of the corporation. Further, LIC has been consistently recording a high number of MDRT qualifying life insurance sales agents every year. 

LIC agents can further qualify for two different levels, viz. court of the table (COT) and top of the Table (TOT). These levels require LIC life insurance agents to earn commissions higher than that required to qualify for MDRT.
