DARIEN, Ill., Jan. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeQuotes.com, the online insurtech that offers comparative quotes from 40 leading life insurers and allows customers to purchase from the company of their choice, today announced reaching 400,000 customers insured and confirmed that life insurance prices are now at all-time lows despite rising COVID deaths.
LifeQuotes CEO, Robert Bland, remarked, "Our business model is firing on all cylinders. We just completed our 11th consecutive year of profitability and recorded a 20 percent increase in delivered policies for 2021 vs. 2020. And we're off to a jackrabbit start so far in 2022 with submitted applications up 55 percent vs. the same period in 2021. Revenue streams from new business, returning customers and renewal income are all contributing nicely to what we expect will be a growth year in 2022."
The LifeQuotes proprietary technology enables easy, instant comparison of life insurance rates among leading insurers. Hallmarks of the LifeQuotes platform are anonymous quoting and a buying process that discloses actual underwriting guidelines to all customers on a pre-purchase basis resulting in fewer rate-ups and declines. The comparative selection of 40 insurers' rates ensures maximum savings. About 10 of the 40 listed insurers are currently providing instant-decision underwriting, which is a hit with life insurance shoppers. Salaried telephone specialists assist and inform without any sales pressure.
"We're thrilled to have reached 400,000 customers insured," said vice president, Michelle Zieba. "Against the sobering backdrop of rising COVID deaths, we want consumers to know that life insurance prices are currently at all-time lows, making this an ideal window of opportunity to buy."
A recent Reuters analysis revealed that COVID deaths hit an 11-month high on Sunday.
Other unique attributes of the content-rich LifeQuotes.com platform include automatic quoting of Final Expense, Term Life, Whole Life and Universal Life, no-exam plans up to $2.5 million and accidental death plans.
Bland continued, "Our selection, savings and service model resonates well with today's COVID-weary life insurance shoppers. The instant quote technology that we pioneered and brought to market enables us to render more accurate quotes and happy outcomes to applicants, including those who have health histories such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, sleep apnea, anxiety and more."

Rayna S. of East St. Louis, IL, remarked, "Very professional, detailed and knowledgeable."
Zieba continued, "LifeQuotes.com recommends that owners of life insurance review their policies at least every 5 years. Many owners of term life insurance policies do not realize that their policies might contain the right to convert all or part of their term life policy to a permanent policy with no health questions or medical exam."
Life insurance rates are at all-time lows
The chart of sample monthly premiums below reveals the best possible monthly prices for a 10-year term life policy. Most 10-year term life policies are renewable, without evidence of insurability, to age 90+ and may be convertible to permanent insurance without having to undergo further underwriting. Other initial rate guarantee periods such as 15, 20, 25, 30 years and longer are also available as are Universal Life and Whole Life, both of which can provide a level death benefit and level premiums for life.
