To help our brokers have successful SEP enrollments, RBG requests any remaining SEP group submissions with the above carriers be sent to your RBG team by Friday December 27, 2019 to allow time for thorough review to ensure clean and complete submission by the carrier deadlines. See the RBG New Business Special Enrollment Period Chart for additional information on carrier deadlines, guidelines and requirements.
