There is Better Pricing on Life Insurance in 2014

A common mistake people make when shopping for the best deal on life insurance is choosing the incorrect face amount.  Many of the top life insurance companies will have a cost-per-thousand price break or “bands” at certain levels.  For example, let’s look at 40 year old male at the Preferred Plus rate class with American General Life (AIG):

  • $200k 20 year term would be $23.04 a month.
  • $250k 20 year term would be $21.29 a month.

As you can see, it is actually CHEAPER in this case to get the $250k vs. $200k!  This won’t always be the case, but you can see an example of how it works.  Many life insurance companies have their price points set at $100k, $250k, $500k, $750k and $1 mil.  However, other companies like ING ReliaStar have an excellent price point or band that starts at $200k.  You can use the quote engine on the side of this page to compare the face amounts and costs for you.  Also, you can speak with a licensed agent to go over the different costs for your age and situation.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask me.
