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 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.

  3. robin rue says:

    I need life insurance. I saw how important it really is after my mom died last year, so I need to get on it.

  4. Stacie says:

    I need to give this a look. I’ve been putting off getting insurance, and it’s mainly been because of what a hassle it is. Thanks for this!

  5. I don’t have life insurance but I would like to get some. It does pay to have a trusted group help you with this important decision.

  6. Jeanette says:

    My husband and I have been talking about getting some life insurance. Our kid does not need the financial strain of everything we do. I think it’s a good idea to get.

  7. Sarah Bailey says:

    I have to admit I am awful for signing up to things via app, I got bored the other week and signed myself up for a LISA, so I am all for doing more things via app as for me it really works.

  8. Estelle says:

    That’s so great that there is a way to get life insurance without having a meeting. We can do everything on mobile these days-why not get life insurance, too.

  9. Kelly Reci says:

    If there’s any app that’s super useful, it sounds like jennyapp is one of them. This is something I’ll have to take a look at with my husband. Could be useful for our family!

  10. Jennifer Van Huss says:

    Buying insurance is so important but it can get so complicated. I love that you can shop online and choose your insurance without a formal meeting!

  11. Theresa says:

    I do have life insurance because I don’t want to be a financial burden to my family when I pass. It baffles me when I see GoFundMe for funeral expenses week after week online. Why would one do that to their loved ones? This app makes getting life insurance hassle free. There’s no reason not to be covered.

  12. This sounds awesome! Definitely worth a try!

  13. My husband has insurance on himself and me through his work. I really need to get more for myself and this is a great way to do that. Thank you for posting this!

  14. Interesting concept for insurance! It is definatley a different way of looking at it!

  15. Dana Peller says:

    I love how user-friendly the Jenny Life app is. It makes it easy to navigate through it and find the information you need.

  16. Wildish Jess says:

    I have insurance through my husband’s work but this is pretty neat. I’ll have to compare the two.

  17. Rosey says:

    I didn’t know you typically had to give blood and get an exam to get life insurance. Makes sense… I get mine through work and we didn’t have to though, so it surprises me just the same. I’m all for easier though, so hurray for Jenny Life!

  18. Sara Welch says:

    We actually recently started shopping around for it. Glad to hear a bit about this because I’m a little freaked out to choose.

  19. Joely Smith says:

    I had no idea that the process of getting life insurance was so exhausting! I have only ever had it through work or my spouse’s work. It is so good that Jenny Life has made it easier! Who wants to go through all that?

  20. I remember shopping for life insurance in 2007. As a single mom, I knew that I wanted to make sure my kids were taken care of if something happened. I need to update my beneficiary info, its been a while.

  21. Ricci says:

    Now this sounds like an awesome insurance app. I currently have good insurance through my job but I ever need additional or outside insurance I will be sure and check this out! Thanks!

  22. My Teen Guide says:

    This is great news. I do not like to sit down with an agent for hours discussing so many stuff that I don’t really understand. I am glad the app can make getting insurance easy and fast. I will check this out soon.

  23. We have so many different life insurance policies and some have made it harder than others to get in place. I love the peace of mind it offers.

  24. Heather says:

    I’ve never shopped for life insurance before. It was always just provided with my husband’s job, but I know if we ever end up ditching corporate life in our later years, we’ll probably end up shopping for life insurance, so these are great tips.

  25. Heather says:

    I have to check this out! I’ve had the hardest time trying to figure out life insurance but I know that it’s a necessity. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Life and health insurance is really important that we should invest in. I have heard of this Jennylife app and I’ll definitely check more into it to know more about them.

  27. Paula Schuck says:

    Obviously I am a huge fan of keeping it simple. Life insurance is one of those topics that is so incredibly boring to talk about. I want to buy a plan that makes it simple but that is also reliable should we ever need to access it. Jenny Life sounds like it’s got a lot going for it. I will scope it out.

  28. Brianne says:

    This is the first time I am hearing about this app. I so need to check this out, anything made simple is welcomed in my world!

  29. Life insurance really is such a hassle. I love that you can do it online and get a quote that fast!

  33. Victoria Heckstall says:

    I don’t have a life insurance and one of my biggest regrets is not getting one for my parents before. Its really important to all of us.
