This fintech startup encourages people to ladder policies so they only buy the coverage they need.

Everyday Life is among the sea of fintech startups that offer term and permanent life insurance online. But it stands out for being the only online broker that promotes a laddered strategy and offers quotes to support that.

While it's partnered with eight top insurers, it's worth comparing life insurance companies on your own to ensure you're getting the best policy for your needs.

Pros

  • Coverage calculator tool
  • Range of term life lengths

Cons

What affects my rate with Everyday Life insurance?

Everyday life partners with multiple insurers, many of which are known for competitive rates. Some partners caters to seniors, smokers and people with pre-existing conditions.

To reach the highest rate class, you’ll need to meet these requirements:

  • Health. If you have low cholesterol levels, normal blood pressure and a healthy height for your weight, you’ll likely score a low rate.
  • Driving record. If your record is free from DUIs and DWIs, and you have less than three moving violations in the past five years, you could qualify for the lowest rates.
  • Alcohol and substance use. No alcohol or illegal substances abuse in the past five years.

What types of life insurance coverage does Everyday Life offer?

Everyday Life is an online broker that partnered with multiple insurers to offer term and permanent (whole) life insurance. It has a needs-based approach to life insurance and specializes in helping you ladder multiple life insurance policies to match your financial obligations. With this strategy, the term policies expire at the same time as each financial responsibility drops off your list.

Let’s say you’re a parent with student loan debt, young children and a mortgage. You could take out a 10-year policy to cover your debt, a 20-year policy to carry your kids through college and a 30-year policy to line up with your mortgage. That way, your coverage lessens over time, but if you die prematurely, your policies would ease the financial burden on your family, no matter when it happens.
