If you’re familiar with the sandwich chain Jimmy John’s then you know how fast they deliver their subs.
Hence their classic tagline, “Subs, so fast you’ll freak!”.
I swear there have been times that I’ve had them delivered where not two minutes after placing my order they’re in my office waiting area ready to make the delivery. Amazing.
Wouldn’t it be sweet if you could get life insurance that fast?
Getting a rate quote for traditional life insurance can seemingly take forever. First, you need to meet with an agent and fill out paperwork or complete the application online.
Then you might need to meet with a nurse or doctor and go through a number of health exams.
Finally, the life insurance underwriters will need a few weeks to review all your information before they can give you a price.
You need to put in all this time and work just to get a policy offer that you might not even want.
I see this happen all the time.
Fortunately, you have other options. There are a number of companies that offer “instant” life insurance quotes. You just need to enter in a few pieces of information online and you’ll receive a life insurance quote within a couple days or even hours.
There are three companies that do a great job of offering instant life insurance quotes.
I’ve put together a comparison of their different programs so you can decide which instant life insurance service is best for you.
Instant Life Insurance With 1ClickCoverage
National Life offers the very fastest way to get life insurance. They offer a program called 1ClickCoverage because all you have to do to apply is fill out one online form; a quote is one click away. You can complete your application anywhere you want and you don’t need to speak with an agent.
Once you’re application is done, you’ll get a decision within an average of 3 minutes.
Through 1ClickCoverage, you can apply for up to $350,000 worth of term life insurance. National Life offers 10, 15, and 20 year term limits for these policies. On the application form, you’ll need to answer a few questions about your health. If you have a major illness, you probably won’t qualify but some conditions like high blood pressure or Type 2 Diabetes are insurable.
When you apply, National Life will consider the medical information you submit and will also look up your MIB medical history, your driving record, and your pharmacy records. If everything looks ok, you’ll receive a policy offer. A nice part about this program is that it offers two insurance ratings: Standard and Preferred. If you are very healthy, this works out nicely because you can get a discounted policy within minutes.
Assurity Gives the Most Insurance Options
Another way to get quick insurance quotes is through Assurity. Assurity’s approval process takes a bit more time than 1ClickCoverage.
To get a quote, you need to speak with an agent. You can handle this interview over the phone. The agent will ask you a few health questions similar to the 1ClickCoverage application.
Once this is complete, you’ll need to wait a few days for an offer. While this isn’t as fast as 1ClickCoverage, it’s still much, much faster than the weeks needed for a regular policy.
The main advantage of Assurity is that it gives you more insurance options than the other fast insurers. You can apply for policies as small as $50,000 and as large as $350,000. In addition, Assurity takes on a wider range of applicants. Assurity offers insurance up to Table Rating 8 whereas other companies stop at Table Rating 4 or lower. This means sicker applicants have a better chance of getting a policy through Assurity.
Lastly, Assurity offers a number of riders to their policy that aren’t offered by competing companies. For example, you can add a spousal policy or add on disability income insurance to your quick-approve Assurity policy.
Guaranteed Coverage with Fidelity Life Hybrid Insurance
If you have health issues, qualifying for a policy can be a challenge. While it’s nice to get a quick insurance decision, it doesn’t help you much if the decision is a rejection.
The Fidelity Life Hybrid Insurance could be your way around this issue. This program combines a quick and easy to qualify for policy with traditional life insurance.
When you apply, you need to answer a few questions for an agent. Afterwards, underwriting will take a couple days. While not all applicants will qualify, the acceptance requirements for Fidelity Life Hybrid Insurance are fairly loose. This program accepts applicants with weight issues or high blood pressure. If you pass the quick approval, you get about a third of your policy accepted as full life insurance and the other two-thirds as accidental death only. For example, the accidental death would cover you for a car accident, but not a heart attack.
From here, you’ll have up to six months to go through the traditional underwriting process with full medical exams. If you pass, your entire policy will become regular insurance. If you don’t, you still get to keep the hyrbrid policy of regular and accident-only life insurance. This is a great for applicants that can’t afford to waste time being uninsured during underwriting.
Cost of Life Insurance Without a Physical
Below is quick rundown of the cost of these type of policies:
|SEX||AGE||Coverage Amount/Duration||Fidelity HYBRID||Assurity Non-Med Term 350||1 Click Coverage|
|Male||30||$250,000/ 30 Years||$24.58/mo||$34.76/mo||$53.01/mo|
|Female||30||$250,000/ 30 Years||$20.44/mo||$28.38/mo||$43.00/mo|
