How to Get a Term Life Insurance Quote

Aug 17, 2007
Getting a term life insurance quote is a smart move. Not only is it the first step towards ensuring your beneficiaries will be financially secure in the unfortunate event you pass away, but nowadays, term life insurance quotes are very easy to obtain.

Given the competitive nature of the life insurance industry, you may even find you're able to negotiate an even better deal than the quote you're given.

Which Insurance Company is Best?

There's no one answer to the question of which insurance company is best. Only you can decide that. If you have a preferred insurance provider, maybe you're familiar with the business from advertising, then start by contacting that source.

If you already work with an insurance carrier that provides other types of insurance, such as your automobile insurance or your homeowner's insurance, or even insurance on your business, then go ahead and contact that company for a term life insurance quote.

If your regular insurance provider offers term life insurance, you may be eligible for a discount just because you are an existing customer.

If you are new to the world of insurance, then do what most newbies do. Fire up your search engine and get a term life insurance quote online. After just a few clicks, you will have before your eyes numerous options to pursue. There's no need to feel overwhelmed with the choices.

Many of the internet sites are set up to get term life insurance quotes from a number of insurance agencies. If you're interested in getting multiple quotes without having to fill out multiple applications, this may be the best way to proceed.

Before selecting this type of multiple quote website, you may want to find out which insurance agencies that particular website deals with. This information generally is listed right on the home page.

Free Term Life Insurance Quotes

Once you've found a website you feel comfortable with, find the link to receive your free term life insurance quote. Be sure to look for the word "Free." If the website wants to charge you for this type of service, you should leave and continue your search. You should never have to pay for a term life insurance quote, but it is the Internet, so you've got to be aware.

After clicking on the link to receive your free term life insurance quote, you'll be presented with an online application form. The amount of information required for each form will vary from site to site.

At a minimum you can expect to provide the following information: age (or date of birth), gender, your health categorization, the amount of term life insurance coverage you seek, the term, your state or country of residency, and whether or not you use tobacco products.

That information will get you a "general" term life insurance quote. The amount of your actual premium will ultimately be determined by a more in-depth review of your personal information and medical history.
