On Wednesday, April 6th, Legal & General updated their OPTerm product. More reductions, especially in the non-tobacco classes, mean more #1 pricing than any other carrier.

Changes to level period premium rates include a mix of increases and decreases, across level term periods (10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 years). Both annual and monthly rates are highly competitive.
