Life Insurance Comdex Rankings- Top 250 Rated Companies in 2014

The Comdex score is the average ranking a company receives from the four major rating agencies in America.  The four preeminent life insurance ratings that are used include: AM Best, Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Services and Fitch.  A company must receive ratings from at least two of the four major rating agencies in order to receive a Comdex score. 

Why use a Comdex Ranking when buying life insurance?

Since there is not a universal rating system to evaluate insurance company’s financial strength, the rating a company receives can be confusing for the consumer.  For example an A+ rating with A.M. Best is the second best rating but with Standard & Poor’s or Fitch an A+ is the fifth best ranking.

Understanding the score

Rather than using letters, Comdex uses numbers on a scale of 1 to 100, with 100 being the best possible score and 1 being the lowest score.  The Comdex ranking is objective and based exclusively on the calculated ratings from the four major rating agencies.

Let’s take a look at the Life Insurance Comdex Rankings- Top 250 Rated Companies in 2014
