How will you Bestow?

We’re building technology to make everything about life insurance easier. But what does that mean exactly? Well, it all depends on who you are.


The only done-in-minutes life insurance application that never requires a medical exam.


Seamless digital solutions that easily add value for customers.


100% digital application with no case management.


Technology and ops solutions that move your business forward.

Leave the hard stuff to us

It shouldn’t be hard to buy life insurance. Or to lead your clients through the underwriting process. Or to offer life insurance products through your existing software. Everything else in the world seems to be getting faster and easier, and we think life insurance should be no exception.

It's about people

We know the peace of mind that can come from feeling prepared for an uncertain future. After all, we have families, too. That’s why we do what we do. We’ve reimagined life insurance, driving innovations in technology and data to expand access and opportunity to more families.


Bestow offers the best of both worlds: fast, modern technology combined with the big insurance names you know and trust.

We work with industry giants like Munich Re® and North American Company for Life and Health Insurance®. With over 250 years of combined experience and A+ ratings from A.M. Best, you can rest easy knowing that they’ll be there for the long haul.
