"You can earn $70,000 in extra commissions and increase your client base," Anderson said.

Agents have a rare chance to get in on the ground floor of a new market, she added. She calls the policy "financial recovery insurance" because it can also fill the coverage gap caused by elimination periods in long-term care and disability insurance policies. A lump sum payment from the insurance companies can allow families or businesses to pay their expenses during that time.

Critical illness policies all cover the most common catastrophic illnesses: cancer, heart attack, stroke and/or Alzheimer's disease, and some policies also cover other conditions. When a qualifying event is first diagnosed, the insurance company pays the policyholder a lump sum.

"The policy's simplicity appeals to prospects and clients. It's an easy sale -- if you know the right techniques and questions to ask," she said.

A mainstay in Britain and Canada, critical illness insurance is expected to become as popular in the US eventually. It's most often bought by people aged 35 to 64.

A top insurance producer based in Littleton, Colo., Anderson is also known in the industry as The LTC Coach. She has taught thousands of agents how to sell effectively in their marketplace and increase their productivity.
