Old Line Life Insurance Company of AmericaIf you’re looking for information about your current in force policy, you have to contact American General customer service at: 800-231-3655.

Old Line Life Insurance started in the early 1900’s.  In March of 2003 they merged with American General.

We’ve run into several consumers lately who have term life insurance policies with Old Line Life Insurance that are expiring.  Every one of these consumers had no idea who their agent was or who to contact.  In fact, one of our clients tried to call American General and explain their situation to a customer service agent who had no idea who Old Line Insurance was.  You NEVER want to talk to a call center customer service agent about your life insurance options (but that’s a whole other story).

When you’re looking to get a new plan, you could run into a lot of problems, and it can be a frustrating process.  We are going to look at the different options and the best ways to get a quality insurance plan at an affordable price.

Here’s what you should do if you want options for your Old Line Life Insurance policy:

1. Contact Rootfin so we can review your policy over the phone.

2. Look at conversion options.  If it makes sense, we’ll have you sign an agent of record letter which will allow us access to your policy information so we can give you ALL the options your policy qualifies for.

3. Review the options American General will offer compared to the options on the open market.

These Old Line Life Insurance policies ARE convertible to a permanent product at the same health class you initially obtained with no evidence of insurability.  This is an especially attractive option for those whose health has declined since they initially purchased their Old Line Life Insurance policy.

Call us if you have an Old Line Life Insurance policy and want to know your options.

Working With An Independent Insurance Agent

You have several choices you can choose from and thousands of different companies on the market. If your Old Line Life Insurance policy has expired, or you’re just looking to get a more affordable plan, you should team up with an independent broker.

Do you want access to more than 60 highly rated companies all at once? The best way to do this is to contact us.

Independent agents have access to all of those companies and aren’t going to put one company in front of another. It’s their goal to get you life insurance as cheap as possible.

We’ve dealt with applicants that have an expiring policy from a company that has gone bankrupt, and we have clients that are paying hundreds of extra dollars for their plan. We know that getting life insurance can be tricky, but that’s why we are here to help.

Getting Cheaper Life Insurance Coverage

When you’re looking to get a new life insurance policy because of an expiring Old Line plan, it’s important you find a cheap policy. Before you apply, you should consider a few things which could lower your rates.

First, quit smoking. It’s one of the most common new year’s resolutions, but very few people follow through on that resolution. If you’re looking for extra motivation, think of the thousands of dollars you’ll save.

Next, make sure you don’t buy the first policy you see. If you lost coverage or you’re simply trying to switch companies, you want to do a lot of looking around for you buy. Just like with any other big investment, you would never buy the first option. If you don’t compare prices, you’re going to spend way too much for your plan.

It’s important to compare dozens of rates before you decide which one is best for you, and our agents can help you do that in a matter of minutes.

We make buying life insurance so easy, there is no excuse not to buy life insurance today.
If you’ve been waiting to buy life insurance, because you want to save money or you don’t think you can afford one, think again. We would be happy to show you how wrong you are.

I just received a letter informing me that premium will triple and I did not know that AIG had absorbed Old Line Life. I am interested to find how ” Old Line Life Insurance policies ARE convertible to a permanent product at the same health class you initially obtained”.

I’ve e-mailed all of you.

I cannot help make beneficiary changes or cash out your policy. You need to speak directly with American General customer service to do that. (800) 231-3655

If the customer service rep hasn’t heard of “Old Line Life Insurance”, let them know American General acquired them. If they still can’t find your policy, ask to speak with a manager who can help you. Your policy IS there.

For those that want to know their conversion options, please call me to discuss. 888-430-7668 x101. Jeff Root

Hi Jeff,

Wonder if you could help me. My grandmother passed a few years ago and have recently found an old life insurance policy through The Old Line LIfe that has a notation by my grama that says “this has changed to variable life insurance.” I am not sure if she would have ever cashed it out or if it is still in current. Date of issue was 2/22/94 and maturity date is listed as 2/22/02. Not sure where to go with this? Can you advise me on what I should do with this. Thank You, Lori Krall
