What if you heave health issues?
The overwhelming majority of applicants are able to qualify for burial insurance in spite of their health conditions. Moreover, there are guaranteed issue burial insurance policies available for the really unhealthy. These plans do not ask health questions or check your medical history in any way. Granted, there is a mandatory two year waiting period, and they are a bit more expensive. However, if totally necessary, they are there if needed.
One important thing to remember is that most applicants can and do qualify for burial insurance that has an immediate benefit. This is the direct result of many final expense companies competing with one another. They all accept and decline different health conditions to be competitive in their own way. When you factor in all your options across dozens of insurance companies, pretty much every health condition can be accepted.
The thing is, in order for you to benefit from this competition, you need to work with an independent agency like Choice Mutual. As discussed above, working with an independent agency is the single greatest thing you can do to get the best burial insurance policy. This is particularly the case when it comes to underwriting.
