Introduction

An over 50’s life insurance policy is a very specific type of life insurance policy. It is similar to that of a ‘whole of life’ policy in that it does not automatically expire after a chosen term. So long as you maintain the monthly premiums, you will be able to make a claim on the policy at any age. With some providers you even cease to pay monthly premiums when you reach the age of 90, but remain fully covered above and beyond this age.

There are a few major pro’s and con’s of this type of the policy which should be important to take note of. Even if you are aged over 50, an over 50’s life insurance policy may not actually be the best option for your specific needs.

Pro’s

With an over 50’s life insurance policy there are limited, or in some circumstances NO health or lifestyle questions or considerations. Therefore, if you are currently suffering or have a history of serious medical conditions might otherwise prevent you being accepted, or the price increased for a regular life insurance policy an over 50’s plan is the perfect choice.

Other considerations are certain lifestyle choices. Whereas whether your smoke or not is still taken into consideration, your BMI (Body Mass Index) is not necessarily. As a result an over 50’s life insurance policy could be perfect for those who might be medically considered over weight.

 

Con’s

As a result of the above positive points, the risk for the insurance company providing the insurance is inherently increased as they may be insuring people with a lot higher mortality risk. This is reflected in the cost of the premiums, and as the insurer does not prejudice based on health and lifestyle questions an otherwise fit an health individual over 50 may be forced to pay a premium loaded to include the risk of covering those with a serious medical history.

 

Is an over 50’s life insurance policy for me?

With the above pro’s and con’s considered it’s up to you to decide whether to apply for a regular term assurance, whole of life policy or an over 50’s policy.
