With most insurance quotes finding and identifying the cheapest quote is easy. Deductibles are easy to spot and are usually the same. But with life insurance quotes there are hundreds of factors that could change from one quote to another. Cash values, premiums and other variables can make the comparison difficult if not impossible. For that there is the “Net Cost Index”. The net cost index is a standard number that takes all of these variables and combines them into one number that can be compared with other net cost indexes from other quotes to compare costs. The number represents your cost so the smaller the better. Since the index is just an approximation very close numbers could prove to be inaccurate. The index was designed to show major differences in price to help the customer get an idea of what is too high and what is a good deal. All indexes are provided by insurance brokers and do not need to be figured.
A great way to get a great deal is to spot the discounts on certain life insurance premiums. In certain cases you could pay less for more insurance. This is due to the fact that there are price reductions that will not start until you reach a certain premium. This may be a discount on premiums of $250,000 to $500,000. So if you only look at a premium of $100,000 you may be paying more than you would for a premium of $250,000.
Most ways to save money on life insurance come out of the wood work as you shop around and look at different policies. We hope that these tips will save you money and good luck in your hunt for cheap life insurance.
