Value Life, Get An Insurance Policy

Jun 5, 2008
Instant Issue Term life insurance is a conducive policy for people who do not want to waste time or don't want to consume much energy and effort to shop around for term life insurance. In cases like that, most insurance carriers give consumers an online and easy form to research, compare and buy a policy instantly without even talking to another person. Moreover, there are no medical exam requirements to complete the policy which is quite an attractive factor. Although there may be a setback for this like its coverage level which, is generally smaller at a more expensive monthly premium.

Life insurance seems to be not as highly as needed when one is newly retired. But even though when your children are all grown up and on their own already, and maybe your spouse could live comfortably with his own retirement savings, there can still be certain circumstances in which many find themselves in need of financial support or back up. If a senior citizen has a certain illness, the tendency is to live with one of the children and this may bring financial dilemma on the affected family members. So better make sure that anyone who relies on your income is covered and that any debts you may posses will not be passed to loved ones in case of death.

If you are single, do not have a family or children and do not own a home, your life insurance needs are most probably not as high as they are in other stages of your life. It is because of the simple fact that who would assume the burden of paying for the final costs if you are to pass away. According to studies, single women often lack satisfactory life insurance coverage, 64 percent of American women do not even carry life insurance at all. In fact, most single moms who may be on a tighter budget than those of normal family with dual income, cannot afford life insurance so the tendency is they go on with different stages in their life risking death without any insurance coverage.

If you work in a company, you will be paying premiums for sponsored health coverage based on risk profiles that take into account factors such as the age and health of the whole group of employees. This kind of system can expand to life insurance as well. If ever you are thinking if it is a good deal, perhaps you should consider that you are paying a premium based on the risk profile of the entire employee base. Meaning, if you are a healthy person with a good "physical build," you could be paying a premium that factor in a sickly, 50-plus employer. It doesn't sound too fair for you, does it? So even if you have a policy because of your job, it could be better to cancel it after you get a more affordable and customized life insurance policy.

To be able to save money and have lower premiums, it is advisable to keep your height to weight ratio at or near the ideal range for your type of body. If you have recently lost weight and have kept it that way but already have purchased a term life insurance, make sure to notify your agent. And if your agent fails or disregards to provide you lower rates, perhaps it is time for you to shop around. Insurance carriers use different health ratios to decide appropriate rates hence shopping around may uncover both possible savings and better insurance coverage. And you may request for a medical exam to accelerate the process but your rates are locked in for the term of the policy so the agent cannot penalize you if you gain weight.
