Most people look forward to retiring in their 60’s. One thing most people don’t realize about retirement is that life insurance benefits almost never persist post employment. In our experience, it’s unbelievably rare that company provided life insurance can be maintained after you quit working. Even the benefit rich positions with state and federal governments typically don’t give their employees life insurance after their employment ends (for whatever reason).
Here are the questions you must ask your employer about your life insurance benefits. Getting the answers to these questions will give you all the information you need to make an educated decision.
- Once I retire, will my life insurance benefits still be in force?
- If so, what will the death benefit be and will it ever change?
- If so, how long will the coverage last?
- If so, will I have to pay for the coverage, what will the price be, and will the price ever change?
If you are still working and you discover that your life insurance benefits will end once you retire, get a plan on your own as soon as possible. If you wait until you are retired (however far away that is) you run the risk of developing health issues. Depending on the nature of the health condition(s), you could be forced to endure a waiting period and/or pay a lot more on your monthly premiums.
When you pass away, there are two questions your family must answer.
How do we pay for your funeral expenses?
What were your final plans and preferences?
Here’s the bottom line

We have a straightforward formula that you can follow to find your best burial insurance plan. However before we do we need to clearly define what constitutes the best burial insurance.
The best burial insurance is simply the lowest cost burial insurance policy that covers you the soonest, and is provided by a financially stable insurance company.
There are lots of burial insurance plans available from many different insurance companies. All of them accept and decline applicants for different health reasons. In the end, your best burial insurance plan will be from one of the insurance companies that is accepting of all your health issues.
Formula To Find The Best Final Expense Policy

Here’s the deal

As you may or may not know, health is a major factor that determines what you pay for any kind of life insurance. Whatever conditions you might be dealing with will come into play when you apply for a burial insurance plan.
Easily the most unique element to final expense life insurance is the incredibly relaxed underwriting. They designed these plans to accept all sorts of very serious health issues.
Every burial insurance company has their own underwriting guidelines. They all accept and decline different health conditions. Given the amount of burial insurance companies on the market, there is a good chance there is at least one out there that will gladly accept all of your health issues.
At Choice Mutual, over 90% of our clients are approved for a plan with a company whereby their benefit protects them in full from day one. Without knowing anything about your health, we can’t give you any definitive expectations. However, statistically speaking it is safe to say that there is a really good chance we can get you immediate coverage.
Here are some of the health issues where it is impossible to secure a plan that fully covers you immediately. You can still get coverage at a low rate, but you will have a plan that only pays a partial or no death benefit during the first two years.
- Congestive heart failure
- Cancer within the last 2 years
- Heart attack or stroke within the last year
- Oxygen use (except for sleep apnea)
- Dementia or Alzheimer’s
There are a few other fringe situations where a person might not be eligible for a full immediate death benefit. With that, if you have health issues that aren’t on that list, we are nearly certain you can get instant coverage with some company. And you know what- We will find it for you!
