The company offers a full range of life insurance policies, as well as financial and investment packages. They have one of the lowest incidences of customer complaints, which indicates a no-fuss approach to payouts.

Our Analysis


A full-service company. Northwestern Mutual Life offers a full range of life insurance products, including term life insurance, several types of permanent life insurance and hybrid policies that combine the two. They don't offer auto or home insurance but do have disability and long-term care insurance as well as financial and retirement investment products, and 529 educational plans. It's somewhat pricier than companies that are not as solid, so if cost is your primary driver, it can pay to shop around.
