Beware of Wrong Information Online
Even from reputable sources. For example, I googled "best life insurance companies" and the #1 organic listing was from usnews.com and below is screenshot of their list. These are all financially strong and quality companies, but may not be best for you.
Below the list above was sample rates, most of which were NOT accurate but did have disclaimer "Any rates listed are for illustrative purposes only. You should contact the insurance company or insurance agent directly for applicable quotes".
Nerdwallet had 2nd highest listing in organic search engine results page with almost identical carriers to above except they included Pacific Life, but did not include Bestow or Nationwide in their list.
