Content Review Process and Standards for SelectQuote

We believe that our customers should be empowered to make informed decisions about their insurance coverage. Part of that empowerment includes having access to accurate, research-based information dealing with all stages of buying insurance.

At SelectQuote, much of our editorial content goes through a stringent process to review new blog posts and educational resources to meet the highest editorial standards. We reevaluate this content regularly to both ensure its accuracy and validity.

Our team of experienced licensed insurance agents read through this content before it gets posted. You won’t ever find an “agent-reviewed” stamp of approval on something that has not been through this process.

How Our Editorial Review Process Works

All SelectQuote content begins with extensive research by our team of writers, who then create articles based on:

  • Common questions or issues we hear from our customers
  • Seasonal trends
  • Updates to regulations or laws related to insurance

After article creation is complete, the content is passed along to our review team, where it undergoes the following editorial process.

Our Principles

SelectQuote’s commitment to our customers goes beyond helping you find affordable insurance by comparing rates from several companies at once. We want to help you understand:

  • How to shop for insurance
  • What questions to ask
  • How your coverage impacts your daily life

Our mission is to help people protect what’s important for them. Our commitment to educating our customers helps remove barriers to shopping for life insurance and offers more choice in the process, which is why we focus on:

Accurate Information

Information is only useful if it’s correct. We fact check all on-site content we publish and will correct or clarify errors or misleading information.


While SelectQuote does partner with several nationally known insurance companies to help provide customers with some of the most competitive rates in all states we serve, these insurers do not in any way influence the on-site content we produce for SelectQuote.com or any of our websites. Beyond basic issues of compliance, our editorial team does not seek endorsement or influence from the companies we work with. SelectQuote does not receive any compensation from insurance companies for mentioning them in our content.


We perform in-depth research as part of our editorial process and cite our sources as often as possible to provide our customers with access to external resources or publications.
