The Assurant plan rates quoted on our online instant quote service are for preferred rates. Approximately 40% of all applications applying with Time qualify for this special class of rates, which are typically 10-20% lower than standard rates.

Preferred rates without riders are available on our instant quote page. The quoted rates are for the $8 million maximum benefit, and do not include optional benefits such as term life, supplemental accident, maternity, and prescriptoin riders. Check to see if you qualify for preferred rates.
