Hey everyone we’re Jeanna and Natasha and we work at Quotacy. Quotacy is an independent life insurance broker. This means we have the ability to sell policies from multiple life insurance companies giving you more options.

Today we’re going to give a review of a U.S. Life, one of the life insurance companies we work with. U.S. Life is the name AIG writes business through in the state of New York. It’s an American headquartered company that has been around since 1919.

Overall, U.S. Life excels at competitive pricing and they’re eco-friendly. We love their paperless process from start to finish.

Quotacy only works with top rated life insurance companies which means they are rated A or better. And U.S. Life is no exception. Being A rated or better means the company is financially secure so you won’t have to worry about your policy’s death benefit not being paid.

To stand out in the competitive life insurance industry some companies cater to different health or lifestyle niches. U.S. Life is excellent for applicants with depression and anxiety, foreign nationals and travel, and those with sleep apnea. This means that while some companies may see these particular factors as higher risk than normal U.S. Life is a bit more lenient.

US Life is an Excellent Choice for:

  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Foreign Nationals and Travel
  • Healthy Individuals
  • Sleep Apnea

 
 
Let’s talk about what we like in regards to U.S. Life’s policies and buying process.

U.S. Life is really flexible with their term length options. Most companies offer the typical 10, 20, and 30 year terms. However, U.S. Life’s Select-a-Term product offers not only 10, 20, and 30 but any term length between 15 and 30 and a 35-year term. The smallest amount of term life insurance you can purchase through a U.S. Life term policy is $100,000. Which is pretty standard.
