Columbian Life Insurance Company Review

Pros: Stability– Columbian Mutual Life Insurance Company was established in 1882, making them a company your family can rely on.  Products– Columbian has a wide selection of life insurance products including their popular final expense policy that allows for a rider of level term insurance on the insured’s children, grandchildren or great grandchildren.

Cons: We found their term life insurance rates to be expensive compared to what is available on the open market. (See the price comparison table below)

Bottom Line: Columbian Life Insurance Company was founded over 130 years ago in Brooklyn, New York.  This longevity from an insurer is reassuring when purchasing a life insurance policy to protect your family.  Columbian Life offers a wide range of life insurance products including: term life, universal life, whole life, preneed, and final expense plans.  We did notice their term life insurance rates were not as competitive in comparison to other highly rated insurers.  As with all the life insurance companies we review, we recommend that you receive a quote from Columbian Life Insurance Company and from the other top life insurance companies and choose the best policy for you.
