You might be thinking…
Does the average age in Ohio affect the price of final expense insurance?
No it does not. The price burial insurance is the same in Ohio is equal to all the other states (except Montana because they have unisex rates).
You won’t pay more because you live in OH.
We only show you this number to put things in perspective. Whether you are close to that age, above or below it, you need to take action now to secure your funeral. The cost can only rise with time. Not to mention, if you have no coverage now, your family is at risk of having to bear the burden of your final expenses.
Ohio is very rare because it has no free look period. However, most insurers will give you the opportunity to review your contract and decide if it is something you want to keep.
For what it’s worth, the free look period is a length of time where anyone can refuse an insurance contract for any reason, and receive a full refund of any monies paid.
It’s important to note that anyone can cancel an insurance contract outside of the free look period in any state. However, if you do cancel an insurance policy outside of the free look period, you won’t receive a refund of any premiums paid.
You should consult the Ohio department of insurance for more information on the free look period.
At the end of the day, burial insurance is life insurance. It’s just a specific type of life insurance that is meant specifically to pay for your final expenses.
You will also hear the terms “funeral insurance” and “final expense insurance” used as synonyms along with burial insurance. All three labels refer to the same kind of life insurance.
Lots of websites have misinformation on this issue which is unfortunate because burial insurance is actually a very simple product.
Here’s the deal
Burial insurance is always a simplified issue whole life policy that has a small face value and very limited underwriting.
These plans are super simple. They come with the following benefits:
- Fixed monthly premiums
- Policy will never expire at any age
- Benefits will never decrease
That’s all there is to these plans. When you pass away, they pay cash directly to your beneficiary(s) which gives them the funds to cover your final expenses.
Super Lax Underwriting
Without question, the most notable feature to these plans is the underwriting. To say they have relaxed underwriting is an understatement.
Here’s the bottom line
The insurance companies designed these plans to absorb the risk of many major health issues that typically come with age.
For this reason, the overwhelming majority of clients can secure a plan that affords them coverage with no waiting period.
In the event you have some very dire illness such as Alzheimer’s or HIV, there are even plans that have no underwriting whatsoever.
These plans are called guaranteed issue life insurance plans. They have no health questions, and the insurance company does not check your medical history.
As you can see, traditional life insurance policies simply cannot match the relaxed underwriting of final expense insurance. The health issued accepted by burial insurance plans would lead to flat declines with traditional life insurance.
The trick to finding the best Ohio funeral policy done by comparing offers from multiple final expense insurance companies.
But here’s the kicker
You won’t be calling dozens of companies getting quotes.
