The life insurance industry has a standardized pricing system called the Commissioners Standard Ordinary Mortality Rates (CSO). The most recent study was conducted in 2001. Prior to this study, the last prices were calculated in 1980.
“Over this 20 year gap, the table represents a 30 percent reduction in policyholder cost,” said Rick Parkes, co-owner of Diversified Estate Services, LLC. “This reduction could be even higher depending on when your policy was put in place.”
Parkes informs that while the study was done in 1980, the lower prices were not implemented until 1988. Policyholders that bought insurance during the lapsed time period may actually be paying an even higher rate.
“Bottom line, there are a lot of policies that are priced better in the market,” said Parkes. “The best way to ensure against over paying or getting less than you’ve paid for is to get a life insurance policy review completed by a knowledgeable advisor.”
