There is a list of top life insurance companies issued each year by the Insurance Information Institute (III.org). They review the total number of life insurance policies issued and the premiums written for each year and release a list of the insurance carriers who did the most business the previous year. Not all of these insurers are the highest rated companies, though.
The financial strength ratings of life insurance companies are issued by independent rating agencies, such as, AM Best Company, Moody's and Standard & Poor's. Some of the top ratings available include A+ and A++.
You can review life insurance company ratings by visiting AM Best Company (ambest.com)
When comparing life insurance companies make sure you consider the financial rating, customer service, how long the insurance company has been in business, and the rates they offer for your life insurance policy.
