Globe Life Insurance Review 2016 (updated 2/2016)

The Pros:  Globe Life and Accident Life Insurance Company has a very easy application process with no medical exam and only a few health questions.  Also, there is no two year waiting period, coverage begins once the policy is issued for both natural and accidental death.  Additionally, Globe Life is A+ Superior rated (second highest of 16 ratings) by A.M. Best for financial strength.

The Cons: Globe Life’s popular term life insurance for adults policy is a step-rate insurance plan and the rate increases every 5 years (every 5th birthday).  This is attractive initially since the price is low to begin (even $1 for the first month) but the rate increases as time goes on, and the policy can become unaffordable to some especially in one’s 60’s and 70’s.  Also, there are complaints about Globe’s customer service on certain consumer feedback websites.

The Bottom Line:  Globe Life Insurance’s prices are competitive in comparison to their competitors. Globe Life has been in business for more than 50 years and has an A+ Superior financial rating from A.M. Best.  Globe Life’s adult life insurance is a popular product due to the ease of the application.  There are only a few health questions and the application is done right on their website.  (Although at the time of this writing 2/2016 their underwriting seems to have become more strict in getting approved with certain health conditions.) Globe even allows you to add additional accidental death coverage insurance for a few more dollars.  However, the adult term life insurance policy is a step-rate plan and the price does increase with age.  Also, if one is healthy and doesn’t mind taking a life insurance paramed exam, there are less expensive options available (see below).  However, for those who want a life insurance policy with a quick and easy application process and don’t mind the increasing rates as time goes on then the Globe term policy is a very good option (sample rates below).  Addintially, Globe Life has a very popular like insurance policy for children which does not increase with age as well as an adult whole life insurance policy that goes up to $50,000.  As with all the companies we review, we recommend that you receive a quote from Globe Life and from the other top companies and choose the best one for you.
