Looking for answers to your life insurance questions? Our FAQ provides the answers to the most frequently asked life insurance questions.
LIFE INSURANCE FAQ
There are no costs for our clients when applying for a life insurance policy. The purpose of an application is to see what official rate a life insurance company will offer you. If a medical exam is needed, you will not have to pay for that either.
Quotes are all of the rates that life insurance companies provide. You still have to qualify for insurance. Once you apply and go through the underwriting process, the life insurance company will make their final decision based on their qualifying criteria. If approved, you will be given a health class rating and the rate based off of that health class. For example, someone with Diabetes may get Preferred Plus quotes and apply based on those rates. However, they are not going to qualify Preferred Plus – and will be rated up. Someone who is in great health and applies for Standard rates will actually qualify for better rates.

If you are wanting to change term lengths to meet your budget, you can simply let us know.
Most life insurance companies require a bank draft for monthly payments. There are some companies that will bill you and you can send in a check. The majority of life insurance is paid with automatic EFT payments to protect the insured from missing a payment and the policy being cancelled.
Life Insurance Experts
Our expertise is in helping match you with the right life insurance company for you. Since life insurance companies have different guidelines for how they price someone for life insurance, you want to choose the highest rated company that will offer you the best rate.
For example while one life insurance company may not offer you their best rates based on your cholesterol levels while another company may offer you their best rate since they have more flexible guidelines.
Online agencies and call centers often use “churn and burn” tactics. Their goal is to submit as many applications as possible by quoting you at “Preferred Plus” even if you can’t qualify for that rate in hopes you apply with them.
