Where to Get Cheap Insurance

Aside from using the tool, you should get in touch with one of our agents. We aren’t contracted by one carrier, we work with more than 60 of them. One phone call lets you compare all of them at once.

Maybe you’re not in the best health, that’s okay. Even if you have some health problems, or you haven’t been to your doctor in years, we can still secure you an affordable plan. We would suggest you don’t bother using the quote tool, and instead call us directly.

Since we do this every day though, we are true professionals at it and always manage to get the best rates for our clients.

Selecting a Life Insurance Policy at Age 67

To get started, you have to know why you’re buying life insurance. The reason behind the plan is going to change how much you buy and the plan you buy.

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 until you die.

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 burial fees, then you can buy a whole life policy which is much smaller. There are burial insurance plans which are tiny policies which are much cheaper. The advantage of a policy like this is  you don’t even need to undergo a medical exam.

“Guaranteed Universal Life” Insurance is 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 the premiums are never going to increase. They are cheaper option for coverage, but you will still have to go through the exam process.

If you want 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

Getting life insurance when you are over 65 is easy if you contact an independent life insurance agency who will go around to all the best carriers out there.

If this article just confused you more, feel free to call us and we can explain further. You might have additional questions, we can answer those. We want to give you professional advice to protect your family.

I am 67. I am U.S. citizen living permanently in Costa Rica. I want to purchase a WHOLE LIFE policy, $500,000 with my daughter(in California) as beneficiary. Cost is not an issue.

    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.
