Choosing the Best Life Insurance Policy at Age 57

Why are you buying insurance? 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.

Next, ask yourself how long you need life insurance. Until you retire or until you pass away.

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.  For example, a 57-year-old takes out a 10 year policy to last until they reach the age of 67 when they retire.  After they retire, they buy a burial insurance plan. This is cheaper and covers the necessary expenses for a funeral.

This can be done for any age.  For example, a 53-year-old looking for life insurance can get a 15 year term policy to get them to 68.

We know that most people in this age 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 expenses covered it can be quite cheap. Some applicants buy a $10,000-$25,000 life insurance policy to cover their burial.  This policy does not require a medical exam and the payments stay the same.

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. These policies could be a little more expensive, but it’s worth paying extra for the protection they need.
