Selecting a Life Insurance Policy at Age 67

The first thing you are going to want to do is ask yourself a couple of questions. What do you need this life insurance policy for? Do you need it to supplement your income after you pass? Or do you need it to pay off some debts you feel might still exist once you pass?

After you know what the policy is for, think about how long you’ll need it for. Some people only need it up until the point that they retire or they think their debts will be paid off. Others, decide they need a life insurance policy right up until the day that they pass.

We know you may not want to spend the money on a life insurance policy but we have to say that having some coverage is better than having no coverage at all. We suggest you to pick an affordable plan that will still be able to help your family.

Consider These Other Policy Options

At the age of 67, whole life insurance can be a bit expensive depending on the policy you select. If all you were looking to cover though is your funeral and other final expenses, you can actually get an extremely affordable plan. Most people take out a policy for $10,000 - $25,000 to cover their funeral costs. The advantage of a policy like this is that your premiums will stay the same forever and you don’t even need to undergo a medical exam.

“Guaranteed Universal Life” Insurance can also be a good route to explore if you are looking for a cheap policy that will never expire. Policies like this are popular because they are permanent and let you have level premiums for the rest of your life. Policies such as this can even cover you for as little as $25,000 worth of coverage although you will need to undergo a medical exam.

If you are looking at getting a whole or universal life policy we recommend you do it sooner rather than later.  Even getting permanent life insurance at age 69 instead of age 67 will make your premium prices much higher.

Bottom Line

The best way to go about getting life insurance when you are over 65 is to contact an independent life insurance agency who will go around to all the top rated life insurance companies to get you the best rate.

We know that there is a lot of information here to process all at once so if you have any questions at all please contact us and we will be happy to help you. Also don’t forget to use our free quote tool to figure out how much your life insurance should cost.

    We sent you an email. However 30 year term on a 67 year old doesn’t exist. There are ways using guaranteed universal life insurance to structure it that way though.
