Life Insurance cost. When we search for life insurance the cost of the policy is important for most people. We want a policy from a highly rated company because we need to be assured that our survivors will get paid in the event of our premature demise. Only a very small percentage of the population afford to put out money for a product without giving cost some thought. Most people try to make certain that their life insurance costs are as low as they can be.

Achieving this is not as simple as it may appear to be. There are in excess of 2000 life insurance companies on the face of this earth and between 500,000 and 700,000 life insurance sales representatives. Each sales representative tries to tell you that he or she has the best policy with the lowest premiums. Some actually believe they have the lowest premiums because they are convinced of this by the companies they represent.

The independent agent is certain that his or her life insurance costs are unbeatable because the rates being quoted are from several different companies. Sometimes they are right and sometimes they are dead wrong.

As I was leaving New York to reside in Florida, a few years ago, I took on the arduous task task of attempting to find the company that provided the lowest life insurance cost for most policies. I wanted a good product to sell. It took me many months going through many A. M. Best comparisons and looking at life insurance cost from every angle that I could think of. Certain patterns began to emerge.

First of all the lowest rates didn't always come from the largest companies as would normally be expected. Large companies run their organizations well and employ the people who know just how much premium to charge for a policy. The premium is not always the lowest even though in some cases the lowest premium does come from a large company.

There are some smaller companies that are so efficiently run that their life insurance costs are competitive and in some cases the the premiums are the lowest.

Today the same companies, though some are known by different names, are the best life insurance companies to deal with. They maintain lower premiums and pay the highest dividends if you buy a participating policy. They are very efficiently run.

How does the average person who has neither the time or the inclination to do all this research? You get on the internet and check the stability of the life insurance companies as well as costs through companies like A. M. Best, Moody's and Standard and Poors. Consumer Report can give you some good information as well.

Another way of researching life insurance costs is by checking premium rates through some of the more reputable companies that market insurance on the internet. These companies represent several of the best life insurance organizations in the industry. In some cases they have contracts with hundreds. They give you an opportunity to compare rates.
