The Trick to Getting Cheap Term Life Insurance

As soon as someone suggests that you should buy life insurance, you probably get that uncomfortable, sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach and for lots good reasons. First, life insurance makes you look at the inevitable, which is that you are not immortal - everyone dies. Next, life insurance is probably one of those things that you know you should buy but really don’t understand it enough about it to make you feel comfortable about buying a policy. And finally, life insurance cost money, and who has extra money to spend these days? Sorry to say that this article cannot help you with your mortality, however, it will explain some of the fundamentals of life insurance, and help you feel better because there is such a thing as cheap term life insurance.

The two basic types of life insurance are: term life insurance and whole life insurance. You need to understand the fundamental difference between these two types of policies in order to decide which is right for you.

Term life insurance is only life insurance coverage - straightforward, plain and simple. Term policies can be written for period of time ranging from a couple years to 30 years or more.

Whole life insurance adds an investment component to a term life insurance policy. These investments can be stocks, bonds or money market investments. Whole life insurance policies have a cash value that can be borrowed against. These policies are not expensive since investments are involved.

Which kind is right for you? If the decision is based on cost only, then go with term life insurance. Term life insurance is almost always less expensive than whole life policies and most
medical insurance policies also. Term life insurance carries very little risk. Today’s rates are low, but are expected to creep up in the near future. When you buy a policy you lock into the rate, so buying now guarantees you the low annual premium for the term of the policy, similar to locking in a low interest rate on a mortgage.

There are many reasons to buying term life insurance today, as opposed to waiting a few years. Premiums for life insurance will be less expensive if you buy before you are 50 year old and if you are in good health. Premiums get more expensive as you get older and many insurance companies will not sell insurance to anyone over the age of 65. This is one of those instances where spending money today can save you money tomorrow. Smoking also factors into the cost of the policy. Life insurance is less expensive for non-smokers.

A whole life insurance policy is like a forced investment plan. The policy’s premium is invested. There are fees and commissions that are associated with these investments that add to the expense of the plan and reduce its profitability. Generally, these policies have to be held for a long period of time (over 20 years) for them to be profitable. There are times where whole life insurance policies can be good investments, but the costs associated with these policies often make less profitable than other investment options.

Whether you decide on a term or whole life policy, life insurance is a way to take care of your dependence after your death. Spend the time, effort and money to protect those you love and care for after you are gone. This is not a time for skimping and trying to save money. Besides, it is easy to find cheap term life insurance. Do a little research, do the right thing and get a life insurance quote today.

How Does Life Insurance Work?

At various times in our lives we are encouraged to insure our lives to make sure that in the case of our untimely death, there is a lump sum of money available to provide our loved ones with a comfortable life or at least, not left with large bills left to pay.

There can be four parties in any Life Insurance policy. The party providing the insurance, the party being insured, the owner of the policy and the beneficiary. Normally the owner and the party being insured are the same person but in some cases, such as a firm wanting to protect themselves from losing a valuable human resource or a wife wanting to insure her husband, another party may take out a policy. The beneficiary is the person to whom the insurance is paid out to, normally a husband, wife or other family member.

Life Insurance is sold like other insurance at a premium that is worked out by taking into consideration three things. The age, the gender and whether the person being insured is a smoker. This information helps determine what premium should be charged based on mortality rates which currently assumes that approximately two people in every thousand aged 25 will die rising to approximately 25 in every thousand for those aged 65. Based on this information, statisticians will determine the premiums required to cover the risk which for a 25 year old male with a $100,000 policy, should at a minimum be around $200 per year.

The premiums paid to the insurance company are then invested to provide a pool from which claims and operations are paid.

Myths and Facts about Life Insurance

Most consumers shop for and buy life insurance without understanding how a life insurance company sets rates., however, brings customers behind the scenes and uncovers the inner workings of insurers. A good online life insurance agent, such as, is the easiest and certainly the most accessible way to the find the best rates.

MYTH: Insurers have similar ways to underwrite policies and all are pretty much the same in their methodology.
FACT: While there are similarities, each life insurance company has a distinct way that they underwrite or set insurance rates. Diverse factors contribute to how an insurer sets rates. An experienced insurance agent knows how to direct clients through the maze of factors and different insurance companies toward the right policy.

MYTH: Life insurance companies measure risk for populations, not individuals.
FACT: For individual life insurance, companies measure risk through a combination of broad population statistics on length of life plus a review of each individual’s health history. The factors looked at mirror the kinds of things one’s physician might look for in reviewing one’s health; including cigarette smoking, cholesterol, ratios of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol, weight, adverse medical history and participation in dangerous recreational activities (for example: skydiving or motorcycle or auto racing). If an activity or health concern, in general, might shorten a life span, it could factor into the life insurance rate.

MYTH: Everyone at the same age is charged the same for life insurance.
FACT: Women are charged less for life insurance at the same age as men because, statistically, women live longer then men. The key factors determining life insurance rates are in order; Age, health history, gender, medical history of parents and siblings and lifestyle factors such as certain recreational activities.

MYTH: People with questionable medical histories usually cannot get insurance.
FACT: What life insurance companies call “higher risk� people can often get “rated policies.� Rated policies carry an extra charge to account for the risk but can usually be found for people with health or lifestyle issues. Sometimes one company will charge extra while another will not.
It can be a good idea to use an online insurance agency such as to shop for you with many insurance companies. A skilled knowledgeable agent with relationships with several agencies can find good rates.

MYTH: People in a high-risk rating category are at the mercy of life insurance companies when determining rates.
FACT: A good online life insurance agency has experience discovering which life insurance companies have the best rates for different medical conditions or situations. They make insurance companies compete to find the most competitive rates for clients in higher rating categories. This is often different from a local agent who may have less access, may not have the knowledge base or is tied to only one life insurance company.

MYTH: There is not much variability among the rates charged by insurance companies for term life insurance or any of the types of life insurance.
FACT: Different rating factors lead to immense variability between rates charged by different companies. Comparison shopping pays off and a good online life insurance agent can serve as an excellent comparison shopper.

MYTH: Insurers will never know if I fib a little on my application.
FACT: Insurers are used to doing extensive background checks and can catch inaccuracies. The best strategy is to be as truthful as possible and use an experienced agent to search out a policy that takes all factors into account.

MYTH: Rates determined based on risk factors like smoking or skydiving are fixed and can never decrease.
FACT: Over time, as health improves, if one loses weight and keeps it off or quits smoking for a number of years, one can reapply to lower one’s insurance rates. There’s no downside to this, since once issued, a life insurance policy’s rates could go down but contractual rates on a life insurance can not be changed, once a policy is issued and paid for, if your health or personal activities change.

Laci Peterson’s Life Insurance Policy Awarded to Mother

In the lengthy battle with Laci Peterson’s husband over the $250,000 life insurance policy, a judge in modesto, California has awarded the proceeds to Laci’s mother, Sharon Rocha.

Laci’s husband, Scott Peterson, who was convicted of killing Laci and their unborn child Christmas eve of 2002, maintains he is innocent and refuses to give up the claim while his case is appealed but California law states that people who kill their spouses forfeit their inheritance rights.

The Petersons had taken out life insurance policies on each other on June 25, 2001 and a year and a half later, Laci disappeared leading to a massive search that resulted in her body being found in San Francisco Bay.

Lincoln Benefit Life Company, an Allstate Company, to Cease Issuing New Lincoln Benefit Life Branded Long-Term Care Insurance Policies

Lincoln Benefit Life Company, an Allstate Company, has decided to no longer issue new Lincoln Benefit Life branded long-term care insurance policies, effective October 31, 2005. Customers who have existing long-term care insurance policies with Lincoln Benefit Life Company will not be affected. They will continue to have their policies serviced through LifeCare Assurance, a third-party company that has administered the Lincoln Benefit product since its inception.

“This decision is in line with the focus of Allstate Financial, the life and retirement savings business unit of The Allstate Corporation, which is to simplify and strengthen our product offerings by developing a limited portfolio of top-tier products,” explains John Lounds, senior vice president in product management, Allstate Life Insurance Company.

The Lincoln Benefit Life long-term care insurance product is currently offered through independent financial representatives appointed to sell Lincoln Benefit Life Company products, along with Allstate exclusive agencies and financial professionals. The company has offered long-term care insurance since 1997.

According to Lounds, the actual Lincoln Benefit Life long-term care product and its administrator, LifeCare Assurance, have performed well, and this decision is not reflective of any aspects of the actual product performance, rather of the category in which the product resides.

“Lincoln Benefit Life’s focus is on developing and offering retirement savings and life products and we want to focus more of our attention and resources on our core product lines,” he explained.

This recent decision is one of many product decommissionings undertaken by the business unit. In fact, according to Lounds, Allstate Financial has decommissioned more than 100 products since the end of 2000. This strategy has strengthened the business unit.

The company does not expect this decision to impact net income or its workforce.

Despite this decision, Allstate recognizes the need to be able to offer long-term care insurance to the Allstate customer base, many of whom are nearing retirement. In line with this, Allstate plans to offer a long-term care insurance product issued by a third-party carrier, yet to be determined. The product would be sold through Allstate exclusive agencies and financial professionals.

Besides long-term care insurance, Lincoln Benefit Life, an Allstate Company, also offers fixed and variable life insurance, and fixed and variable annuities.

For more than 65 years, Lincoln Benefit Life Company has been an innovator in bringing insurance and annuity products to policyholders nationwide. Lincoln Benefit Life was acquired in 1984 by Allstate Life Insurance Company specifically for its ability to develop competitively priced insurance and annuity products for distribution through independent agents. By the end of 2004, the company had $211.3 billion of life insurance in force and more than $2.7 billion in assets under management. And its financial strength and ability to meet its obligations to policyholders are reflected in the high rankings it has received by independent statistical rating agencies. Lincoln Benefit Life prides itself on its ability to provide exceptional products and service to its customers.

Lincoln Benefit Life Company is a proud member of the Insurance Marketplace Standards Association - IMSA. Membership signifies commitment to honesty and fairness in the sales and service of individually sold life insurance, long-term care, and annuity products.
