Life Insurance Survey-How Does Your Premium Compare?

2013 life insurance survey

Ever Wonder How Much Other People Pay for Life Insurance in 2014?

A survey conducted last year by Harris Interactive showed nearly half of those polled pay less than $50 a month for their own (not group work coverage) life insurance policy.  One of the biggest misconceptions about life insurance is that it just costs too much.  For most people this is simply not the case.   For example, a 45-year male can purchase a $250,000 term life policy on a ten-year term for as low as $18 a month.  This would be for the best health class and only $31 a month for the average health class.  If you have dependent children, a mortgage, a spouse or anyone else dependent on you or your income, life insurance is a necessity.  When you look how you can buy a policy for pennies on the dollar, life insurance should be an integral part of almost every Americans financial plan.  In fact according to the study, nearly forty percent of U.S. households have no life insurance at all.  The remaining 61% have some type of life insurance but the majority does not have enough life insurance to help their family sustain their current lifestyle.

Life Insurance Quotes August 29, 2013 at 12:02 pm

I agree that rates are low and comparing pricing among several leading carriers may save you quote a bit each year on your life insurance coverage. In addition, it may be a good idea to compare life insurance rates if you currently own life insurance, and find out how much you could be saving with a new policy. But keep in mind, never cancel an existing life insurance plan without having a new life insurance policy “In Force”. Also, when you get a new life insurance plan, the 2 year period of contestability starts over. Finally, if you were a smoker when you stated your life insurance policy, buy haven’t smoked for more than 1 year, contact your insurer and ask about a re-rate to non-smoker life insurance rates. They may have you take a nicotine test, but if you have quit smoking, you could save quite a bit of money.
