In fact one of the biggest mistakes that people make is waiting to buy life insurance because they think they can pocket the money for a few more years. The actuality of the situation is, that life insurance rates are based on your current health condition and the older you get the more likely your health is going to decline, causing your life insurance to become more expensive.

Also, around 50 years old is when you really need to start thinking about having life insurance. If something were to happen to you unexpectedly, how would your family deal with the situation?  If you don’t have a life insurance policy in place, the chances are very good that your family would be stuck with all of your financial burdens.

Choosing the Best Life Insurance Policy at Age 57

The best way to go about this is by asking yourself what the purpose of your life insurance policy is.  If it is simply to cover the cost of your burial or whether it is to take care of your family’s financial responsibility over any that you might still have.  Your answers to this question will help you decide which sort of life insurance policy will be suitable for you.

When it comes to term length you will also need to make a decision.  Some people only carry an insurance policy until they retire while some have one until the day they die.

One thing that many people are doing these days is taking out life insurance until they retire but have another policy that will give them a payout to cover their burial on the day that day pass.  An example of this is a 57-year-old taking out a 10 year policy to last until they reach the age of 67 when they retire.  After that they will still have their burial insurance in place to cover those costs and that policy will be quite cheap since they took it out very early on.

This can be done for any age.  For example, a 53-year-old looking for life insurance could get a 15 year term policy to get them to their desired age.

We know that most people in this age bracket are on a budget and we understand that. Our goal is to find you something that works for you.

Two Other Types of Policies to Consider

For a 57-year-old it could be quite costly to take out a whole life insurance policy, although if you only need your burial and other final expenses to be covered it can be quite cheap.  Lots of people take out a $10,000-$25,000 life insurance policy to cover their burial.  This policy does not require a medical exam and the payments will be the same price for the rest of your life.

If all you need is a small amount of life insurance that will never expire then you should look into a guaranteed universal life insurance policy.  It might be more expensive than taking out a term policy but the permanent nature of the policy will help you sleep better at night.
