Life Insurance Quotes & Determining the Cost of Your Policy
The underwriting process for a life insurance policy uses several factors to calculate your monthly premium:
The Type of Policy You Choose
Term life policies are typically more affordable than permanent life policies. Term life premiums are fixed while permanent life premiums tend to increase about 8% to 10% for every year of age.
The Amount of Benefit You Choose
You can typically expect to pay a higher monthly premium when you choose a higher benefit to be paid to your beneficiaries.
The Length of Your Term Life Policy
The longer your term, the more expensive your monthly premium can be. This is because the longer you have the policy, the older you get and the greater the chance that the insurance company will have to pay out the death benefit.
Your Health at the Time of Purchase
Most applicants must have a basic medical checkup. Some factors that might result in higher premiums include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis, hypoglycemia, chronic illness, nicotine use or recreational drug use.
Your Age at the Time of Purchase
Older individuals can expect to pay a higher premium for both term and permanent life insurance.
Your Hobbies at the Time of Purchase
Do you enjoy extreme sports like hang gliding, skiing or climbing? No surprise, you’re a bigger insurance risk, so you may pay a higher premium for both term and permanent life insurance.
On average, men can expect to pay higher premiums than women because the average lifespan of a male tends to be shorter than that of a female.
