Seniors may not like the fact that everything is either initially done online or via the phone. Many older adults prefer not to have a middleman, and instead want to walk right into an agent’s office for a more personalized experience from the start. However, for computer-savvy seniors, the user-friendly platform offered by Trusted Choice is an ideal way to shop for a local agent. Even the phone service is a helpful way to find out about numerous insurance agents at once.

The website features an easy-to-use platform, and insurance shoppers always have the option of calling the company’s customer service to discuss local agents with a person in a one-on-one fashion. Once the consumer has entered all the required information on the site, they are then shown a list of local agents who can meet their insurance needs. They then must either personally call the insurance company or wait for the insurance agent to call/email them to gain a quote. This can be time consuming for many consumers.

Seniors may become discouraged with the process because they will not receive instant answers to their insurance questions using Trusted Choice. There are no quotes offered on the site.
