QuickQuote was one of the very first websites to offer life insurance quotes online. It is a pioneer within the industry. This was back in 1995 when getting insurance quotes online was a relatively new concept. QuickQuote specializes in life insurance. By honing in on its specialty, the company has developed a very proficient and effective way for insurance shoppers to receive and compare quotes for life insurance online.

Shortly after the website launched in 1995, several news sources interviewed the company as shopping online for insurance seemed a new frontier. Some of the companies who interviewed QuickQuote include the New York Times, Money, Business Week, Smart Money and Fortune magazine. Since the launch of the website in 1995, the company has focused on improving technology, customer service and more partnerships with reputable insurance companies. In 1999, the ING Group purchased QuickQuote but the company returned to private-held ownership status in 2003 when the ING Group transferred ownership back to the management team of the company. 

The President and CEO of QuickQuote is Mr. Casey Mees. The headquarters is located in Reno, Nevada. The QuickQuote US, LLC website is not an insurance agency, but only works to provide quotes to insurance customers. The website is operated by US National Health Plan.

It is a fully-owned subsidiary of QuickQuote US, LLC. The company works to connect people who are looking for life insurance with insurance company providers. Personal information you may enter on the website is protected by SSL security. You also have the option of opting out of having your personal information used for any marketing purposed.

How It Works

Through the website, you can receive a life insurance quote in 50 states and the District of Columbia from top life insurance carriers. Some of the companies who are listed as partners include Lincoln Benefit Life Company, American General, Fidelity Life, MetLife, Prudential, Lincoln Financial Group, Protective Life Insurance Company, Mutual of Omaha and Transamerica.

At QuickQuote, not only can you comparison shop for life insurance online, you can also purchase a policy. Additionally, the website will provide policy management support.
