Pan-American Life Insurance Company Review

Pros: History– Pan-American Life has been in business for over 100 years demonstrating a track record of stability.  Strong Latin America Presence– Pan-American is one of the leading underwriters in Latin America and the Caribbean.  Hispanic Community– Pan-American Life is ranked number eleven on HispanicBusiness 100 list of the largest Hispanic businesses in the United States.

Cons: Their term life insurance rates are not the least expensive available (see the price comparison table below).

Bottom Line: Pan-American Life is a strong insurance company as it has been around for over one hundred years with an A (Excellent) financial rating by A.M. Best in 2014.  While Pan-American Life Insurance Company may not be a household name in the United States, the New Orleans based insurance company does have a strong presence in Latin America and the Caribbean.  In 2014, Pan-America Life ranked number one on the HispanicBusiness 100 list of companies in the financial sector as seventy percent of their overall company employees are Hispanic.  However, when comparing their rates they did not have the lowest prices available.  As we suggest with every insurer we review, we recommend that you receive a quote from Pan-American Life but also compare it to the other top life insurance companies and choose the best company for you.
