    This is a good question. Most people go with the lowest price. Then their company goes belly up & they lose their policy. I would recommend speaking to a competent insurance agent before securing a insurance policy. To check out the various life insurance types and options click on http://www.insureme.com/landing.aspx?Refby=614500&... It’s a web site that will give you the information required to make a decision on which policy is right for you. It also gives you the option to call local agents to get any of your questions answered. This service is 100% free and you are not obligated to buy anything. Hundreds of companies use this service, which makes it very easy for a consumer to find the best price for a specified amount of coverage in minutes. Policies start at as little as $3 per month.

    Take care,

    Don't forget about State Farm Insurance!!

    If you're interested in buying Life Insurance, don't buy because they are listed in the top ten, buy because of the security the policy has to offer... I'm a licensed agent, and I happen to know that research and time can definitly produce a darn good and secure policy..

    Term life, are you sure it's a good idea? It ends in 5,10,20, or 30 years. Mostly when you hit retirement age. If you fund your 401k account properly, you might have something to live off of but majority of American don't put enough into their account inorder to live off of it, that is why you see older people still working. Look into index universal life insurance. The one I have is known as " life insurance you don't have to die to us". It secures my families financial future if I was to suddenly go, helps pay for my medical bills, because if you live long you get sick before you die. If I'm healthy and live long, it's a tax free retirement plan.

    if you are thinking of getting a life policy get TERM INSURANCE!!! its the best one, the rest like whole life, universal life, annual renewable term, etc, rip you off!!!

    listen to suzy orman or dave ramsey, theyll tell you the same thing i just did.

    buy term and invest the difference.

    go to the new york stock exchange website and look up PRI for primerica.

    best company
