Who is Banner Life Insurance?
Banner Life was founded in 1949 and was originally called Government Employees Life Insurance Company (GELICO) which was actually part of the same company as GEICO. Legal & General Group bought GELICO in 1981 and changed the name to Banner Life. Banner is headquartered in Maryland and has over $400 Billion of life insurance policies in force.
Besides being in business for over 60 years and having over $400 billion in life insurance in force, Banner Life insurance also has an A+ rating from A.M Best. An A+ rating means “Superior” and indicates that Banner Life is very strong financially.
Key Features of Banner Life Insurance
Banner Life is known for their competitive term life insurance prices. They are one of the top term life insurance companies in the U.S.
Banner offers level term life insurance for 10,20, or 30 year term periods. One of the nice features of Banner Life is that you can convert their term life insurance to a permanent Universal Life policy (called Life Choice UL). You can convert your term policy to their Universal Life policy at anytime during the length of your term insurance, up to age 70. The nice thing about converting your life insurance policy is that you don’t need to have a medical exam done, and you get the same health rating that you received when you originally bought your life insurance policy.

If you are in that position, Banner Life may, or may not be the best company for you. I encourage you to fill out our contact-us form, or call us at 800-574-0245 Ext 101 to help match you with the right company.
