    “We have some important news to share with life insurance shoppers,” said LifeQuotes.com vice president, Michelle Zieba.  “We’re delighted to see temporary COVID-related underwriting restrictions being lifted by major U.S. life insurers.  This is an excellent time for owners of life insurance to review their policies and for life insurance shoppers, especially those with medical conditions and those over age 60, to take advantage of these great rates and the selection that our comparative rater has to offer.”
