Fidelity Insurance Company Review

Fidelity was established in 1896 and has since attained more than $100 million in life insurance policies. Initially known as Mystic Workers of the World, the company grew and by 1930, it took on the Fidelity name.

Today, Fidelity has 10 regional offices and 180 Investor Centers across the country. Its global reach covers eight countries across four continents and is supported by over 40,000 employees. In addition to being a top life insurance provider, the privately held company serves over 25 million investors, handling 22.8 million brokerage accounts, 476,400 daily commissionable trades and over 5 trillion dollars in total customer assets. Though Fidelity was once known more for its financial services offering, it has become a force in quality life insurance policies in recent decades for its innovative products, like its hybrid life insurance plans.

Insurance Options

Rapid Decision Life lets you get approved for a high amount of coverage within a very short amount of time — just 24 to 48 hours. The policy starts as a hybrid of two coverage types — a level premium term life policy and an accidental death policy. The former pays a benefit for any type of death while the later pays out in the instance of an accidental death. Fidelity may adjust the mix of coverage within 6 months if your health is as good or better than you first reported. If your health is the same or worse than you self-reported, the coverage will remain the same.

Rapid Decision Express offers a quick and easy purchase experience using online technology and innovative underwriting techniques through the Rapid App application process — offering coverage within days instead of months. Coverage is based on your answers to a few questions about your health, not tests or exams. This type of application is not offered by other insurers. This policy provides a level death benefit through age 95. Terms of 10, 15, 20 and 30 years are available. After the term, rates will increase annually through age 94.

Like other Fidelity plans, no medical exam is required. This policy is not suitable for individuals with serious health conditions or a limited life expectancy. Premiums remain the same throughout the life of the policy.
