What is term life insurance?
Term life insurance is the most common type of coverage owned in the USA because it’s affordable and simple to buy. Buy life insurance online.
This type of life insurance is called term life because it lasts for a specific period of time—usually 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 years—depending on the policy length you need.
Once your life insurance policy is active, you can die anytime during your term and your family will receive all of the money in one payment—quickly. This payment is typically $50,000 to $1,000,000—or more—depending on the coverage amount you have chosen.
Simply buy what you can afford today. It will mean a lot to your family tomorrow.
Quotacy offers policies only from the most trustworthy—financially stable—life insurance companies in the USA. Ratings are available for your review here.
Life insurance is for the living. While you are alive, it gives you peace of mind. After you die, it gives your loved ones the chance to fulfill the dreams you shared together.

How to prepare for your phone interview
Typically within 48 to 72 hours of receiving your application, your preferred life insurance company will contact you for a confidential, 15-30 minute phone interview to confirm your personal and health information submitted on your application.
You may need to provide your:
Driver’s license and Social Security number
Healthcare providers (names, addresses, and phone numbers)
Medical history (treatment dates and prescription medicines)
Existing life insurance policy info (company name, coverage amount, and policy number)
Financial info (income, assets, liabilities, and net worth)
Some companies will schedule your medical exam during your phone interview, if your policy requires an exam.
How to prepare for your medical exam
You’ll meet with a licensed medical examiner at your home or office at your convenience. The health exam is done at no cost to you. You’ll be asked to:
Share medical history (your and your close relatives’)
Measure height and weight, blood pressure, and pulse
Once your medical exam is completed, an underwriter from the life insurance company will review your medical records and approve or deny your application.
Timeline for going from quote to coverage
On average it takes two to six weeks to be approved for a term life insurance policy.
