Progressive Life Insurance Review 2016

Pros:  Instant Quotes– The life insurance quote engine on Progressive’s website (which is through a 3rd party agency called Efinancial) offers instant life insurance quotes from several of the nation’s top life carriers.  Offers Several Highly Rated Insurers– The quote engine on Progressive’s website shows the prices for about a half a dozen of the top life insurers such as: American General (AIG)Voya, Transamerica, Prudential Life and Fidelity Life.

Cons:  Progressive Doesn’t Offer Life Insurance– Unfortunately, for those looking for a life insurance policy with Progressive Casualty Insurance Company will be disappointed to learn that Progressive itself doesn’t sell life insurance.  When you request a life insurance quote on the Progressive site you get redirected to the Efinancial quote engine page.  Quote Engine Bias– Also, the quote engine on the Progressive site (Efinancial) seems to often put as “Our Pick” is the Fidelity Life Hybrid Term product (Efinanical is owned by Fidelity Life). The Hybrid Term policy was not the best priced policy available nor does the company have an A.M. Best financial rating as high as the other companies in their quote results. Missing Top Carriers– Lastly, we noticed how the quote engine on the Progressive site was missing the rates from some of the other top independent life insurance companies in America such as MetLife, Mutual of Omaha, Banner Life, Protective Life, and SBLI.

Bottom Line:  While Progressive is one of the top auto insurance companies in America they are not licensed to sell life insurance.  They simply allow Efinanical to offer you their products and services on the Progressive website.  As stated on the Progressive website, Progressive is not responsible for any life insurance claims, products or services offer through Efinanical.

There are some positives with the life insurance offered by Progressive through Efinancial, such as offering multiple highly rated carriers and providing instant price quotes, but there are also some drawbacks.  One is they seem to recommend for nearly every person/quote request is the Fidelity Hybrid product (Fidelity Life is the owner of Efinancial).  Also, the quote results show rates from some of the top independent life insurance companies in America but are missing some of the other preferred companies that are highly rated and offer low rates like; Banner Life, SBLI and Protective.  As with all the companies we review, we recommend that you receive a life insurance quote from Progressive and from the other top companies or agencies and choose the best policy for you.
