    Who cares? What is important is having a company with a good product that will be around to offer customer service and/or pay a claim when it occurs. How big they are is unimportant as long as they are financially strong and have adequate reserves.

    Ditto.

    Who cares?

    There are thousands of life insurance companies to choose from.

    One of the earliest life insurance companies in the US was formed around 1759.

    There are several hundred companies that have been around for one or two CENTURIES.

    You can throw a dart at that list and virtually be guaranteed that it'll be a good one.

    And you can check the financial strength at ambest.com/homepage.asp

    Then google the company for reviews about quality and service.

    Good point, but I would also include weiss research and S&P in the rating mix. Weiss is the only one not getting fees from the insurance companies as well, so may get a more neutral financial rating from them.

    Nice information,Term Life Insurance is a type of insurance policy whereby the insured pays a fixed sum for a period of time. This sum remains constant. The premium charged is very nominal. The Policy holders normally survive even after its expiry unless they are affected by fatal disease or injured in an accident.

    I think the best insurance are the ones that provides clear and good deals. Some insurance do sounded like they have good to offer but honestly they don't which is really bad.
