Baltimore Life Insurance Company Review

Pros: Stability– Baltimore Life has been in business for over 130 years and is the thirty-sixth oldest life insurance company in the U.S. 

Cons:  Their term rates are not the most competitive and their A.M. Best rating is not in the A- (Excellent) or better category that see with many of the companies we review.

Bottom Line: The Baltimore Life Insurance Company has been around since 1882 and has met their financial obligations (paid out claims) to their policyholders for the past 130 years.  Baltimore Life provides a variety of life insurance products to meet almost any need, including their popular life insurance solutions for seniors.  However, their financial rating of B++ is a little lower than many of the other top companies we reviewed.  Although a B++ financial rating from preeminent ratting agency A.M. Best is still categorized as (Good).  Also, their term rates were not the most competitive with some of the other companies available on the market. Bottom line, as with all the companies we review, we recommend that you receive a quote from Baltimore Life Insurance Company and from the other top companies and choose the best one for you.
