Obtaining Affordable Life Insurance

If the cheapest life insurance in your 60’s is what you’re after, then the cheapest way to obtain it is to get in contact with an independent life insurance agency that has access to ALL of the top rated life insurance companies.

With access to all these companies, they can help you find the best quotes and then prepare them so you can compare them all side by side. If you are of good health, then our online quote tool will give you accurate quotes, so all you need to do is choose the cheapest option.

If you have any type of health problems though, we will first need to qualify your condition and then do some research on your behalf. Since every life insurance company has a different way in which they assess risk, rates will vary between the companies. We spend the time contacting each company individually, something that would take you several days to do on your own.

Selecting the Best Life Insurance Policy at Age 63

Start by asking yourself why you are taking out a life insurance policy. Do you need it to replace your own income for your spouse’s benefit? Or do you need it to cover any debts you may leave behind? The way in which you answer those questions should determine what type of plan is right for you.

For the length term, do you need it only until you stop working when retirement kicks in or do you need it until your debts will be paid off? Or, do you need it all the way up until you pass?

While most people can’t stand the thought of spending lots of money on life insurance, it is much better than they have some coverage compared to no coverage at all. And it is much better to get a policy at age 63 instead of looking at life insurance for someone over 65.Just find something within your budget that will help your family out.

Additional Types of Policies to Consider

At 63, whole life insurance can start to get pricey. If all you need is your funeral and other final expenses taken care of though, you will be surprised at just how affordable a policy like that could be. Most people take out $10,000, $15,000 or even $25,000 worth of coverage. There is no medical exam required and your rates are guaranteed for life.

“Guaranteed Universal Life” insurance can also be a popular choice for 63 year olds because you can get a cheap policy that doesn’t expire. These policies can go as low as $25,000 but do require a medical exam.

Bottom Line

Whether you are looking for a policy for someone 62 or for a 63 year old, you are always working with an independent life insurance agency that has access to all the top rated companies. That is the only way to get the best rates, even cheaper than you may be able to obtain on your own.
