I first heard about Bestow when they popped up on StrictlyVC, a newsletter that follows the hottest startups around the world. This company sold life insurance that was easy to pick and purchase. I got $500K in coverage in minutes and pay very low prices given my excellent health. I was very pleased with the entire process and would recommend them to anyone!

For healthy people. People with little health problems look elsewhere.

The Final Word

Bestow and Ethos are similar companies. Both allow clients to apply and purchase life insurance online. These companies both offer policies issued by financially strong companies, so clients don’t have to worry about reliability when purchasing from a new company.

Bestow and Ethos agents also do not earn commission. Those working with either company don’t have to worry about being upsold or rushed into a purchase.

Bestow offers two term lengths: 10-year and 20-year. Clients can purchase up to one million dollars in coverage.

For more information about coverage levels and term lengths available through Ethos, clients should complete the online quote process on Ethos’s website. While both companies are great options, it’s nice that Bestow offers more information about the policies it offers.
