Have you ever smoked or used tobacco?
Insurance companies will give lower life insurance rates to people who don't smoke or use tobacco. If you smoked in the past, most insurance companies will consider you a "non-smoker" if you have not smoked for at least 12-24 months before applying for coverage.
Most insurance companies view the use of other forms of tobacco (cigars, pipes and chewing tobacco) as the same as cigarette smoking. However, some companies see tobacco chewers, pipe and cigar smokers as non-smokers.
If you are not sure you would be considered a non-smoker, please check with an insurance broker or call us at 1-888-854-2503 and we'll connect you with an insurance broker featured on our site.
How many people do you want insured?
- look after any children they may have and pay for future educational expenses
- to pay off outstanding debts (like a mortgage)

There are many other life insurance products on the market, including Permanent Life and Disability insurance.

Where do you live?
Automobile insurance rates are generally higher in metropolitan areas. That's because there are a higher number of accidents, theft and vandalism claims than in rural areas.
