SEARCH LIFE INSURANCE COMPANIES
[   CONTACT INFORMATION ON THE LARGEST COMPANIES   ]

NOTE: To return to the Tool Kit, Close this browser window.

   There are about 2000 insurance companies in the U.S. The actual number changes from year to year with new entries and consolidations. Since this is such a large number to contact it is best to start with the companies that sell the most life insurance policies. These 100 companies together represent about 90 percent of all life insurance policies sold. As a result, statistically, if you start with the list below you increase your chances of success dramatically.

   You must remember that insurance is a private contract with the insurance company. Since the insurance companies do not share this information you must contact all the companies individually. Also, do not forget that many people have multiple policies with different companies.

To assist you in contacting the companies I have provided website links, mailing addresses and phone numbers. The best way to obtain an accurate answer is by making a written request to the home office. I do not recommend e-mailing confidential information. Even with this warning I know many people do send confidential information over the internet. Many Insurance companies use secure servers if you e-mail them a question from their website. Many do not like e-mailing back answers with confidential information so include your mailing address and phone number if you do take the chance of e-mailing them.

   It is a big job! I am working on ways to make it easier, but to do it yourself the right way you now know what is required. Below is the list to start with. Some company websites are more helpful than others. Some have a lost policy search feature while others list confusing information about all the different companies they own. If you get lost, I also give their address and phone number.
Good luck!
