Understanding Life Insurance Ratings 2017

The most important rating to look at when choosing a life insurance company is the A.M. Best rating. This is the first category on the life insurance ratings chart 2017, in the table above.  Most financial experts agree that you want to choose a company that has an A rating or better from the preeminent rating agency A.M. Best. This means the life insurance company was graded to be financially strong and has an excellent ability to payout future claims to policyholders. In addition, since life insurance is so highly regulated, by choosing a company with an A rating or better and by shopping on price, you know you will choose the best company to protect your family.
