Purchasing Life Insurance Online

My Client Saved $7950 On His Life Insurance Policy!

When my clients save a lot of money, I am happy!

Recently, a client, who is in excellent health, applied for a 15-year term life insurance policy.  He had some past medical issues that were a potential obstacle, so I checked with several carriers to find out which ones would offer him the best underwriting classification.  We decided on a very strong A+ rated carrier that offered him their best rate contingent upon a review of his medical records,

Get the Preferred BEST Life Insurance Rate with Total Cholesterol of 300

Many people have high cholesterol levels, which can increase their risk for heart disease and strokes.   Life insurance underwriters have traditionally been unwilling to consider offering the best rates to people with high cholesterol readings.

How to Apply for Life and Health Insurance In Georgia

There is not a single “right way” to apply for health or life insurance.  Although their are some general guidelines followed by most carriers, each carrier has it’s own set of unique underwriting guidelines.  This is why it is very important to apply for coverage with the assistance of a knowledgeable agent.  People who apply directly with a carrier or through an inexperienced agent are much more likely to get declined or receive an unfavorable underwriting decision.
