Which is The Best Life Insurance?

Life -Insurance

There are a large number of insurance companies on the market.  Many of us can think of only the most well-known and established names.  Who has the time to research them all?  More importantly, how do I know which is the best life insurance for me? 

The best life insurance for one person is not necessarily the best for another. As with all commodities, it is on a case-by-case basis.  Factors such as type of policy, length of coverage, and health issues determine what is best for each person.  This is where comes in. After entering a few questions, the user will be provided with a personalized quote with several term life insurance options. only offers the life insurance companies with the highest ratings from A.M. Best, from A-, A, A+, and A++.  A.M. Best is a credit rating organization since 1899 with criteria such as financial standing and credit worthiness. As noted by the name itself, the company notifies the public of what is “Best” in the insurance industry, aside from being the last name of Alfred M. Best, the organization’s founder.  A.M. Best is the longest running credit rating organization of its kind.  It ranks insurance companies not just in the US, but in Canada, United Kingdom, and the rest of the world.  Its coverage is the largest in scale worldwide.

There are two main types of life insurance: one is called term and the other permanent. For term life insurance, as the name implies, it covers only a specific “term” or period in your life. It could be 10, 15, 20, or 25 years. Term life insurance is highly recommended because it is affordable and gives flexibility over a specific time frame. You can choose to have a fixed, variable, or renewable premium.  You can also get one after age 70.

Permanent insurance is suggested if you will have estate tax liabilities after you die. Permanent insurance comes in three forms: traditional, universal, or variable. Traditional is when the dividend income of your plan can be used to either lower your premium, increase cash value (amount that can be withdrawn), or increase death benefits. Universal is the middle-risk type among the three. In place of traditional permanent life insurance’s dividend income, interest goes back to the plan which allows high or low possible premiums. The riskiest among the three is the Variable. This is when you invest some of your premium in investment vehicles such as mutual funds, money market funds, etc. You would have not have cash value for your plan in this type.
