Genworth Life Insurance Review 2016

In 2016 Genworth Life Insurance has suspended (closing) it’s sales for new life insurance.  This will not affect current policy holders but sales of new life insurance products will not be available. The review below was originally written a few years back but we have updated the ratings as of February 2016.

Pros:  Prices & underwriting- Genworth is typically right there at the top of the list for having some of the lowest rates in the country.   Also, Genworth has favorable underwriting guidelines for applicants facilitating an approval at the same rate that was applied for.  Size and market share- Genworth Life Insurance Company is a top 20 life insurance company in 2015.

Cons:  Not too many cons with Genworth Life Insurance.  One knock would be they no longer offer a 30-year term life policy which could be an issue for applicants seeking for a longer policy length. Also their financial rating is an A- (Excellent).

Bottom Line: Genworth is a top life insurer in America.  They usually have the best underwriting for build (height and weight) and for people with 5 moving violations in the past five years.    Genworth Life Insurance Company is right there at the top of the list in companies you should look at when shopping for life insurance.
