I'm 41, non-smoker. No major health issues, just high cholesterol that's handled with medication. I'm looking for a $1M 20 yr term life policy.
LI is much more a commodity. You only need it at most once! Definitely get a well-rated company, but otherwise (in my mind) it's 100% on price.
I have similar stats to yours above. When I was shopping, I was looking for $0.40-$0.60 annual premium per $1000 of coverage. So, for your $1M coverage, that would be $400-$600 per year in premiums.
You mention "just high cholesterol"; even though it's handled, you are unlikely to be underwritten at the best rate, but shop pretty hard on this one. It's a $10K+ investment over the 20 years.
