Term life insurance is very affordable. How inexpensive can it be for a young woman, age 26? The rates are much lower than the rates for men! Term life insurance prices continue to get less expensive. You may have bought term life several years ago, but today you might be able to qualify for lower rates, or you can buy more coverage for the same price you pay now. To show you how inexpensive it can be, I’m writing a series of blog posts about life insurance companies with the best rates for term life policies at various ages. Here are 5 companies with low rates for a 20 year term life insurance policy with a $500,000 death benefit, over 4 health classes, for a twenty-six year old female non-smoker. Find a good life insurance company today.
Hopefully, if you have been discouraged from buying life insurance because you think it’s not affordable, this information will change your mind. My Website helps you find the best rates & policies for auto, home, & life insurance, so bookmark or place my site in your favorites for you to use at your convenience.
Female Age 26 Non Smoker Preferred Plus Rates
I found these term life price quotes through a term life quote comparison engine (many of these are available on the Web), & these rates, companies, or policies may not be available in your state.
The Preferred Plus class provide the lowest prices, and they are for people in great health. So, if you are sure you are in great health — you eat right, exercise, & maintain a healthy weight — these are the rates you will pay, right? Not necessarily.
With auto & home insurance, agents usually qualify you for the rates you will pay at the time of application, and you start coverage with your first payment. Life insurance works differently.
When you decide to buy life insurance, a competent agent will estimate the price you should pay based on the answers you give to the health questions. Then you complete & submit an application to the insurance company.
The company reviews your application, orders additional information, like a paramedical exam ( A paramedic meets with you, gives you a health exam, and takes your blood), to determine if they want to insure you, and the rate to charge you if you are accepted.
You may seem to qualify for the Preferred Plus rates at the time of application, but, for example, you may be genetically predisposed to higher cholesterol than a normal, very fit person, and the policy will get issued at a higher rate, due to the paramedic exam results.
With auto & home insurance, it’s easy to shop based on price. With life insurance, it is not possible to know the best term life insurance rates for you before your application is accepted.
See how the company with the lowest price changes, if you qualify for Preferred rates, instead of Preferred Plus rates:
Female Age 26 Non Smoker Preferred Rates
Please see how Royal Neighbors of America has the lowest monthly premium for the Preferred Plus category. But if you applied, and your policy is issued at the Standard Plus class rate (see below), Royal Neighbors isn’t among the five insurance companies with the lowest rates for the Standard Plus class. Assurity has the best Standard Plus rates. So, should you apply to Assurity, if you think you can’t qualify for the Preferred Plus or Preferred class rates? Maybe not, because each insurance company has its own criteria for health category placement.
For example, you may qualify for Preferred with American General at $22.23 a month, but only the Standard Plus rates with Savings Bank Life Insurance Company of MA at $29.15 a month, instead of Savings Bank’s Preferred health class pricing at $21.75 a month.
Female Age 26 Non Smoker Standard Plus Rates
Can you see the top term life insurance companies in each health class usually have rates close in price to each other, but there is a bigger difference in the rates among the health categories?
For example, Banner Life Insurance Company is $18.81 a month in the Preferred Plus category, $22.31 a month in the Preferred category, $28.00 a month for the Standard Plus rate class, and $35.88 for the Standard health class, which is not among the 5 lowest priced companies for Standard rates.
This is why it’s a good idea to use an experienced agent, because you can’t find the best priced term life policy for you without one. This is different than my advice about shopping for auto & home insurance, where consumers can easily shop based on price.
A good agent will quote you an accurate term life quote at a competitive price, based on the agent’s knowledge of the guidelines of each life insurance company, and your health, your family’s health history, & your habits.
A bad agent quotes everyone preferred rates, or low rates they are not likely to qualify for, after asking you too few questions. This type of agent wants you to apply based on the low price, then they will explain & apologize for the much higher rate when the policy is issued, hoping you will pay it.
Take a look at these prices below for the Standard health category. All four of these categories are for healthy people. What if you have a minor medical condition, or you are overweight? A good agent knows the insurance companies with the best rates for certain health conditions, such as high blood pressure, or over-weight people.
