Here is how the best life insurance rates are first created
The life insurance company actuaries who are highly trained develop the rates based on statistics. This revolves around the life expectancy of people of all ages groups. They have to take factors like current health conditions carefully into consideration. They also have to pay attention to many of the most hazardous occupations or dangerous sports. Anything that could be a factor in taking ones life, they have to consider. The life insurance actuaries are where it all begins.
Each states Department of Insurance makes sure all rates are regulated
After the life insurance actuaries create the rates, the insurance carrier publishes the rates for review. The next step will be with each states Department of Insurance that the company does business in. Before the rates can be made visible to consumers. The Department of Insurance in each state has to approve and authorize the rates to be released. This can take months to accomplish but it is the law. Once a states Department of Insurance approves the rates, the agents will receive them and the quoting process may begin. The best ones for this job are the independent insurance agents.
