Welcome to Haven Life

Welcome to the Haven Life blog! Here we’ll aim to inform, entertain and provide you with updates on our launch in 2015.

Let me first start with a disclaimer that, trust me, I know life insurance isn’t a sexy subject. However, it’s a necessary one when it comes to financial preparedness, and the good news is, thinking about it, researching it and even purchasing a policy won’t cause anything bad to happen – except for a mild headache and frustration. At least, that was what I experienced when I first went through the process.

Where to buy term life insurance online

Welcome to the Haven Life blog! Here we’ll aim to inform, entertain and provide you with updates on our launch in 2015.

Let me first start with a disclaimer that, trust me, I know life insurance isn’t a sexy subject. However, it’s a necessary one when it comes to financial preparedness, and the good news is, thinking about it, researching it and even purchasing a policy won’t cause anything bad to happen – except for a mild headache and frustration. At least, that was what I experienced when I first went through the process.

When my wife, Heather, and I were expecting our first child, I decided it was time to purchase a life insurance policy. While I had gotten an MBA and been working in financial service startups for many years, when it came time to select a policy, I realized I didn’t know very much about the options available to me or where to start when term life insurance and permanent life insurance. Once I did some initial research and decided to move forward with a term life insurance policy, I was surprised to find out I couldn’t purchase it online. I’m able to purchase almost everything else in my life online – how is it possible that I can’t purchase life insurance the same way?

After going through the strenuous, and rather confusing, process of applying and purchasing term life insurance policy, I walked away feeling less than confident about my choice. And, I’m probably not the only person who has felt this way. There needed to be a simpler, more convenient and online way to purchase term life insurance – and, a few years later, I co-founded Haven Life to bring this simple idea to life.

At Haven Life, we’re setting out to change the way you purchase term life insurance. We believe that technology offers a solution to this time-consuming process that is easier, faster and just plain better.

  • A simple online process
