Life Insurance Policy Rates


Clinching the best deal while buying a life insurance policy is not an impossible proposition, though it is a little cumbersome. It is always advisable to shop around for the best possible policy that serves the individual's needs and requirements.

Engaging the services of a good financial expert or advisor is always recommended, given the complicated insurance jargon, hidden fees, and other intricacies. In most cases buying a life insurance policy is a significant decision and thus it has to be made with due caution.

It always helps to compare quotes of policies, shop around and gather information either online or offline from independent agents, brokers or companies.

One of the best-kept secrets of insurance markets is that commission-free insurance agencies and companies actually exist. The insurance policies of these companies are often cost-effective. However, one has to be judicious in checking the financial standing of the company, its reputation, and history of paying promised dividends before buying its policies.

This background checking should be done for all companies big or small. Purchased wisely, a life insurance policy can become a source of reaping dividends, an investment and a source of liquid cash when the need arises.

Many companies have provisions for securing low-cost group term life insurance for its employees for the time they are employed. In most cases, term life insurance is much more affordable than whole life insurance. The initial premiums are also much lower than for whole life insurance.

However, in later years, as the mortality risk of the insured increases, the premiums become substantially higher, sometimes much greater than for whole life insurance. A return of premium policy is an amalgamation of term life and whole life insurance.

Though they are popular for the added cash surrender value, they are almost double the price of a standard term insurance policy. Level term insurance has initial premiums higher than the annual renewable term, but they are a value if brought for a period of 10 years or more. The premiums are reduced in the latter years. In annual renewable term policies, there is an increasing premium rate over time.

A whole life insurance policy offers a lifetime protection guarantee and has a cash value and dividend generation and investment feature entrenched in them, unlike term life insurance which is purely protection-oriented.

However, whole life insurance policies are much more expensive than term life insurance. The initial premium is also much higher than the actual value of the insurance. This enables the addition of a cash value feature and leveling of latter premiums. Universal life insurance allows the flexibility to choose the kind of premium payment and death benefits as well as the cash value.

The rate of life insurance policies also varies from individual to individual as well as from company to company. It is always advisable to compare quotes. Comparing the quotes of term life insurance is comparatively simple, where the various features of the policy like duration or term are the same. Premiums can be compared to find the best deals. Each company has different financial advisors, parameters for mortality assumption, commission rates, dividend projections, etc.

Most insurance companies keep individuals in good health as their proffered clients. Smokers, diabetics, obese individuals and others with high mortality rates pay a greater price for the policies. These may sometimes become grounds for rejections.
