Bias is a part of any sales process, and the term life insurance industry is no exception. Life insurance agents you speak with on the phones are not necessarily looking out for you and your family’s best interests — they are trying to sell you on something, and they will use all of the sales tactics in their arsenal to influence you to buy a certain product.
This includes giving you a quote for more coverage than you actually need, or giving you an initial quote for a plan that will actually have a much higher premium once underwriting is complete (which is why Everyday Life’s online process only recommends coverage that you are likely to be approved for at the quoted price).
When you buy coverage online, you can make decisions for yourself, and you won’t have to deal with the pressure of speaking with a sales agent. You can do research and compare plans objectively.
