United Life Home Insurance Company Policies
United Life Home Insurance Company sells policies for whole life, term life, and accidental death coverage in 44 states and the District of Columbia. Not every policy is available in every state, however. United Life, which has been in business since 1948, sells its policies through independent agents.
The company’s Express Issue Whole Life insurance plan is a guaranteed issue policy, which means that most people are guaranteed to qualify for the plan’s coverage. The only exceptions are individuals:
- That have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS
- Are terminally ill
- Are confined to a facility
- Have an immune disorder
There are three different types of Express Issue plans, varying on the coverage age, whether the death benefit is lump sum or graded, and the medical questions that potential policyholders must answer.
United Life Home Insurance Company’s term life insurance policies are offered as 20 or 30-year term plans. They also offer a choice of tradition or “return of premium” term life insurance. While the plans, and all of the company’s policies, do not require exams, the company does ask questions to see if potential customers:
- Engage in dangerous activities
- Have ever been convicted of a felony
- Have ever had their driver’s license taken away
- Have had or been treated for a serious illness in the past five years
If so, the company may decide that you are better qualified for one of its high-risk whole life policies.
United Life Home Insurance Company also sells accidental death benefit term insurance. Even unhealthy people can qualify for this insurance, which also lets policyholders decide whether to have their premiums returned to them after 20 years with the company. There is also a guaranteed doubling of the face value of this policy after 20 years, so customers can use it like a savings account, or use it to help with final expenses once they are gone.
United Life Home Insurance Company Agents
The United Life Home Insurance Company sells its products through a network of independent agents. The products do not require blood work or exams from policyholders and potential policyholders, so agents do not have to deal with their customers face-to-face. Instead, agents can do almost all of their business over the phone or the Internet. United Life Home Insurance has a dedicated Internet portal for its agents.
While you might like the company’s policies and terms, if as a customer you require a little more one-on-one attention, you might try to seek out an independent agency near you and check if they carry the United Life Home Insurance Company products in their portfolio. If not, and you are not comfortable with working with an agent you only talk to via the phone or Internet, your best bet is to find another life insurance company.
