Poll conducted by AIG

More women than men have life insurance

AIG poll shows about two thirds of Israel's population insured. Over half of insured Israelis buy insurance through companies. Nearly one third can’t name own insurance company

The rate of women who have life insurance in Israel is 11 percent higher than that of men, a recent poll conducted by the AIG insurance company revealed.


The survey showed that out of the 403 individuals aged 28-65 who made up the representative sample, 68 percent of Israel’s women were insured in comparison to 57 percent of its men.


However, when it came to senior employees insurance, the numbers were higher for Israeli men. Fifty-three percent of men had senior employees insurance, in contrast with 40 percent of women.


On the whole, 63 percent of both men and women who took the poll had life insurance. Fifty-seven percent of these purchased their insurance through an insurance company, compared to 20 percent who purchased it through a bank.


Twenty-one percent of those polled said that the main factor which encouraged them to purchase life insurance was their place of work, whereas 22 percent said they purchased life insurance “just in case”.


Twenty-nine percent of those asked could not name their insurance company, compared to 18 percent who could.


Sixty-four percent of the people polled were not aware of the sum their families would receive in the case of their death.
