Financial Ratings of Life Insurance Companies

Financial ratings for life insurance companies ratings are very important to us when selecting a life insurance company four our clients. For an insurance company, there is nothing more important than it’s financial strength and ability to pay claims to policyholders.

We monitor the financial strength and claims paying ability of life insurance companies by using a number of different rating agencies.

Ratings agencies assist policyholders by assessing a grade based on the financial strength and claims paying ability of each insurance company.

Each rating agency evaluates insurers slightly differently, but ratings are based on factors such as a company’s financial holdings and how much it is collecting in premiums compared with how much it’s paying out in claims.

To evaluate the premiums, plans, and death benefits from only the highest rates companies, use “Instant Life Insurance Quotes”. Then, select only  A+ rated carriers from A.M. Best from the listing of quotes and companies. Your quote also includes a detailed report evaluating the financial ratings from A.M Best, S&P, Fitch, and Mood’s, and a composite Comdex Score.
