Why you should trust Insure.com
Our take: Sproutt is an online life insurance broker that offers policies from many top insurance companies, such as Banner, SBLI, and TruStage.
Less than a decade old, Sproutt has grown in popularity as an online life insurance broker that infuses artificial intelligence into its system, allowing the brokerage platform to anticipate an applicants needs and find the best policy for their profile. The Sproutt platform quickly makes coverage recommendations from a long list of insurance partners, although their tech-heavy approach might be less exciting to customers used to working with more established companies.
Trustworthiness: The Better Business Bureau evaluates businesses on their behavior, trustworthiness, and performance. A business with a high ranking from the BBB can be trusted to meet its commitments. Sproutt is not accredited with the BBB, which means it has not made a commitment to respond to complaints made to the BBB about its service. Still, the BBB gives Sproutt an A+.
Financial strength: A.M. Best evaluates a company’s financial health and its ability to meet its financial obligations. A.M. Sproutt is not rated by A.M. Best, though many of the companies it offers on its platform are.
Customer experience: Trustpilot is an online platform for individuals to provide reviews of companies and their customer experience. Sproutt has a 4.8 rating, an “excellent” rating according to Trustpilot.
