The search for online life insurance goes on for a lot of people. But what exactly is online life insurance? It is simply getting a quote for life insurance online, negating the need for an agent to be present during the transaction.
While this may be to the advantage of some people, to me it carries the risk of the buyer not fully understanding the insurance plan, where he may end up buying something that was quite far from what he thought it was.
As it is with other online transactions, I think it should always be caveat emptor.
