In your younger years, you may not have thought too much about life insurance. As a result, you might have avoided purchasing a policy and put off the thought of life insurance until “later”.
Now that you are getting older, however, life insurance might be on your mind. You may be concerned that it is too late to buy any worthwhile coverage. Well, even though it is always better purchasing policies at a younger age, obtaining coverage at an older age may not be as difficult as you may think.
In fact, many life insurance companies offer policies that are created specifically for the mature market. In particular are senior life insurance plans for final expenses. These type of plans often have very few medical question and in some cases have none at all. There are traditionally no medical exams required and features include…
No medical exams, No blood draws
