Get A Quote Before Buying Life Insurance

August 13th, 2015

When planning their future, most people think of getting a life insurance, but knowing which one to choose can be difficult. There are different rates associated with the different types of life insurance, namely term (covers a predetermined period of time), whole (offers permanent coverage), and universal (permanent coverage that can be customized) life policies.

That is why it is always good to compare quotes from several brands before purchasing any type of insurance. There are two ways to do this: you can compare prices online or discuss the matter with an expert, either over the phone or face to face. Online life insurance quotes are usually free of charge and obligation, and you can get an accurate estimate based on your particular situation that will help you estimate costs and see what type of insurance is right for you.

Steps

To get your life insurance quotes, simply enter the web address of the insurance brand you are interested in, and click their get-a-quote or similar button. Next, select the appropriate product (in this case, life insurance) and the type you want (term, whole, universal); you can also choose all three to get personalized quotes and see which might work better in your case.

Before moving on, it is advisable to read a little on each of the types above so that you get an idea of what each means and how you and your family can benefit from them; this step is particularly important for those who are unfamiliar with life insurances. It may also be useful to know that most insurance companies offer an online calculator feature that enables you to determine the amount of life insurance you need in the first place.

To get an instant online quote, you will have to fill in your date of birth and gender, e-mail, phone number and address, select the city and state you live in, and your coverage amt. Some insurance companies provide instant online life insurance quotes, but not all; in the latter case, after you submit all the required information, you should receive a call from one of the company’s representatives within the following hours or days.
