Senior Life Insurance
This term is and always should be used loosely. Both Final Expense Insurance and Burial Insurance are forms of senior life insurance. As a senior planning for end of life, you should be thinking about permanent life insurance as the source of financial protection and/or wealth transfer. Term life insurance is not a good option. It is not dependable as none of us know when our time will come. Term life insurance is for a defined period of time. Plenty of seniors have turned 80 and had their life insurance expire and stuck with very high premiums to replace the inappropriate policy that expired. Anybody who tells you otherwise has either a short history working with senior clients or is just a price salesman and forgetting what their job is. Be careful what you purchase for end of life planning.
There are really only two options we recommend to seniors.
While none of this is a hard and fast rule, you should understand the repercussions of buying the wrong life insurance. There are many agents and companies selling inappropriate policies to seniors.
When you need a guarantee of permanent coverage, be sure to choose one of these types of life insurance.
Apples are not apples with these products and a mistake can cost you and your beneficiary a lot of financial and emotional stress at the very least.
