Life Insurance for Seniors

Life insurance for later in life.

You may not think you need life insurance if you no longer have dependents, but it can still play an important role for your family’s financial future. We have life insurance policies that can help seniors take care of the people who are important to them.

How Life Insurance Can Benefit Your Family

Funeral costs

The death benefit can provide money needed to avoid burdening your family with funeral expenses and other bills.

The everyday things

Your partner could choose to use the death benefit for everyday living expenses and outstanding debts.

Giving back

By naming a charity as the beneficiary, life insurance can provide a practical, affordable and flexible way to give money to charitable organizations and causes. Life insurance donors can leave a legacy while receiving tax benefits.

Retirement help

If you don't need the death benefit, you can use the cash value of a life insurance policy to help out financially in your retirement years.1

Is it Right for Me?

Life insurance from is a great way to provide peace of mind for you and your family. What kind of coverage and how much you need will depend on your personal situation.

What are my options?

Term Life

Term life provides the highest death benefit for the lowest cost. You pay for coverage for a certain length of time (10,20 or 30 years), and coverage and premium payments stop at the end of the term period. You may qualify for a 10-year policy up to age 70, a 20-year policy up to age 60 and a 30-year policy up to age 50.

Whole Life

Whole life insurance provides permanent coverage for the rest of your life, as long as premiums are paid. Over time, you build cash value in the policy, in addition to the death benefit. You can pay the same premium for life, or you can choose to have a paid-up policy in 10 years (if you’re 80 or younger), 20 years (if you’re 75 or younger), or at age 65 (if you’re 50 or younger).

You could also buy a Single Premium Whole Life policy with one lump sum payment, which provides a paid-up policy that can be given as a gift to a child, grandchild or other heir; a great way to transfer tax-advantaged money to the next generation.2

Universal Life

Like whole life, universal life provides permanent coverage for life – and you can build cash value over time, in addition to the death benefit. The biggest differences are that universal life allows you to adjust your coverage amount, and you can change the amount and frequency of premium payments.
