Jenny Life Has Just Changed the Game on How Moms Buy Life Insurance
Have you ever shopped for life insurance before? It typically goes something like this: find a price quote on the Internet, wait weeks for your scheduled medical exam where you get a blood test and give a urine sample, take part in an exhaustive phone interview with a bunch of questions, then wait several weeks for your application to go through. And, if you’re not accepted, start the entire process over again. Frankly, the life insurance process is just not mom-friendly.
Enter stage right Jenny Life. Their Seattle-based team of insurance specialists and software engineers teamed up to build a much better process. The result is a mobile application for your Apple or Android phone that allows you to get a quote and apply for life insurance in a few minutes, entirely EXAM-FREE! You read that right. You can get life insurance without ever having to sit in an exam room or have a nurse come to your home.
Although Jenny Life works for anyone, it was built specifically with moms in mind. How cool is that? “Over 60 percent of mothers don’t have life insurance and we view this as a public policy issue,” said Chirag Pancholi, co-founder of Jenny Life. The company set out to make it incredibly simple for moms to access life insurance. “We believe that accessibility is the number one reason so many moms don’t have mortality protection to cover their children and household and we felt certain we could help change that.”
“We simply don’t believe an online GoFundMe campaign is a life insurance strategy,” said Pancholi when discussing how uninsured households are closing the financial gap when a parent passes away unexpectedly. He continued, “There is a tremendous financial burden when a parent dies in an auto accident or from a severe illness and an appropriate level of life insurance coverage can be a godsend.”
The Jenny Life application allows you to get an instant quote and apply for life insurance entirely from the mobile phone, and is available in 48 states (not Montana or New York, yet). You can download the app and get a free quote by searching “Jenny Life” in AppStore, Google Play, or links are available via the website at www.jennylife.com. The company also built a nifty little tool at their website where you can drop in your mobile number and they’ll text you back with the mobile app.
