There are several ways to get term life insurance. The easiest and most cost efficient way is to contact an independent life insurance agency.
An independent life insurance agency can offer virtually any life insurance company on the market.
We don’t work for any specific company – we work on finding you the best rate, no matter which company will offer it.
There are a couple of things to understand before purchasing term life insurance:
- Term life insurance rates are the same no matter where you purchase. Every agent uses the same published rates. Save yourself the time of calling different companies and just use an independent life insurance agency. We’ll run side by side comparisons based on your health and recommend the best rates available for you.
- Life insurance applications must be assisted by a licensed life insurance agent. You will have to speak with someone so make sure you find an EXPERIENCED independent life insurance agent.
I can’t stress finding an experienced life insurance agent enough. Every week we help consumers find much better rates than what they currently have only because their agent used the wrong company. We clean up rookie agent mistakes all the time.
You get term life insurance from either an independent agent, captive agent (only representing one company) or call center.
Typically if you go to call center life SelectQuote or AIG Direct, you'll be working with a kid in a cubical who is newly licensed. Try to avoid that at all costs. Those brand names that you know simply have the big marketing budgets. We actually wrote a SelectQuote review here.
Each life insurance company will look at you differently, so the key in finding the best rate is using the company that will look at you most favorably. Only an experienced agent will truly be able to find you the best rate.
