You’ve probably heard that life insurance quotes are now available online in an easy to access fashion, but you are also likely concerned about whether you’ll have to provide any personal details about yourself in order to get them. The good news is that if you shop around and choose the right site, you don’t have to give any personal details about you in order to learn what the cost is for getting critical financial protection for you and your family.
Life insurance shopping is a very personal experience, even when you are going through the process online. You have to consider your individual needs, what your family might need access to in the event that something happens to you, any health considerations or family history concerns that could impact the rate class you are placed in, and who should be named as beneficiaries. All of these are very personal decisions that you should take seriously.
But that doesn’t mean that you want every online shopping experience to be so highly personal. These days, more people than ever are concerned about giving up their personal information to anyone online in light of security breaches. Others just don’t want their private information stored somewhere so that a telemarketer can reach out to them later on. Everyone has their reasons for not wanting to give out personal information until the official application process, but it’s really hard to take that first step in the research process if you’re consumed with fear over giving your personal information. The unfortunate truth is most life insurance quote websites are marketing agencies looking to sell your information to call centers nationwide. Which will just leave you getting a million calls a day from amateur agents.
When you are ready to begin the process of seeing what’s out there, make sure you find a site that has no personal information required when running life insurance quotes. This shouldn’t be a hidden line item or a site where you have to enter pages of other information only to find out on the last page that you have to enter personal details in order to actually see the quote. The website should be happy to advertise that it doesn’t require your personal information right up. Make sure you do your research before entering your quote request so that you are confident you have kept your personal information safe.
Nothing turns you off on a life insurance quote website faster than realizing that in order to see the quotes you have to enter a lot of personal information. While your ultimate purchase of a policy is going to be personalized, if you’re in the shopping around stage, you don’t need it. The reality is that you need very little information for a life insurance quote, so a company that’s digging too deep in this initial stage is simply going above and beyond. The vast majority of quoting engines just need a few basic details to churn out your options with a myriad of companies, so don’t fall for the trap that the machine doesn’t work without it. You shouldn’t have to give up your personal details to get an online life insurance quote.
