I am considering starting a new career at age 57. My wife and I each had a business fail in 2007 and had to file Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy. I think that insurance sales may be a way to quickly fund some sort of retirement income through renewal commissions. It also seems that getting into insurance for seniors, I would be in an expanding market. My question is this: will my recent bankruptcy be an obstacle to getting a license or a stumbling block to hooking up with an agency for training? I understand that a background check is SOP. What are they looking for? I'm grateful for all advice !!
