Life Quotes, Inc.: Low Cost Life Insurance is Readily Available to Healthy Kidney Donors

Exclusive survey reveals that 82 percent of responding companies would award their lowest possible rates to a healthy kidney donor

DARIEN, Illinois (June 25, 2012) – In an effort to clarify and ease the decision-making process for the families and friends of some 87,000 people who await a kidney transplant, Life Quotes, Inc. today released the results of a survey that revealed that 82 percent of responding life insurers would, in fact, award their lowest possible rates to a healthy kidney donor. Donating a kidney will not, in and of itself, negatively affect the availability of low cost life insurance to an otherwise qualified applicant. Instant life insurance quotes are available at

"We conducted this survey in an effort to get the facts and clear up misunderstandings that might exist among potential kidney donors," remarked Life Quotes founder and CEO, Robert Bland. "There are an estimated 87,000 Americans awaiting a kidney transplant and given the gravity of such a decision by potential donors, we felt that providing fresh facts might be useful to their decision-making process."

The following leading life insurance companies have confirmed that they would not preclude a healthy kidney donor from being awarded their best possible rates: Banner Life, Wm. Penn Life Insurance Company of New York, Genworth, ReliaStar Life, John Hancock, Protective Life, Prudential, Savings Bank Life of Massachusetts and Transamerica.

Bland continued, "There's even more good news here for life insurance shoppers: many life insurance rates are now at or near all-time lows. As this chart shows, healthy applicants with no ratable medical conditions can now lock-in guaranteed life insurance rates for many years to come at very cheap rates."

The chart of sample rates was gleaned from a pool of 30 leading life insurers who provide instant life insurance quotes at The best possible sample life insurance rates now available for a wide range of adult ages and initial rate guarantees of 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years are as follows:
