Why Get Life Insurance For A Senior 86 And Older

In this section, I’m going to be talking about why an individual 86 years old or older should have life insurance.

So, maybe you’re not totally convinced that you need to purchase life insurance. Maybe your goal today was to simply get more information so that you can decide if you REALLY need life insurance coverage or not.

Hopefully, I’ll be able to help you make that decision today!

In general, there are usually only two main reasons as to why an 86 year old (or older) is looking to purchase life insurance. Most likely, they are wanting to make sure their final expenses are covered or they’re wanting for there to be some sort of income replacement when they pass away.

What do I mean by “final expenses”, you may ask?

Let me explain…

Final expenses can also be thought of as your burial costs. It refers to the amount of money it will cost for your cremation or burial.

The truth is, final expenses can be pricey. Cremation costs can be anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000 and burial costs can be anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000, depending on where you live.

Because of this, it’s a REALLY good idea to take out a policy that will cover your final expenses. That way, your loved ones won’t be burdened with trying to figure out a way to pay for them.

Listen, I’m always going to shoot ya straight. My goal in writing this article is to give you the KNOWLEDGE that you need to make an informed decision.

I don’t want you to worry about how your loved ones are going to pay for your final expenses after you pass. I want you to have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that you have quality life insurance coverage in place.

But, maybe you’re one of those individuals who wants to make sure there is some sort of income replacement because of large debts.  Do you have a mortgage, auto, education, or business loan?

Many people want to make sure there is money to pay off debts when they pass away.  That way, their loved ones won’t be burdened with the debt while trying to work through their grief.

No matter your reason, having quality life insurance in place is a good idea.

What Types Of Life Insurance Are Available To Seniors?

Now, let’s discuss the types of life insurance options available to seniors between ages 86 and 90.

This section is pretty straightforward. For individuals aged 86-90, there is only one life insurance option: burial insurance.

Burial insurance is designed to cover the costs of your cremation or burial.  You’ll also hear it referred to as “final expense” insurance.

With burial insurance coverage, the money from your policy will be paid directly to your beneficiary when you pass away.    Then, your beneficiary can decide how to use the money.

There is also a cash component to some burial insurance plans.  This means that, if eligible, you may be able to take out a loan against your plan if you need the cash.

Additionally, you may be eligible for same day full benefit coverage.

Although it may seem like your options are limited, the important thing to remember is that you DO still have options.

If you’re between the ages of 86 and 90 and looking for life insurance coverage, then burial insurance is what you’ll need.

How Much Coverage Can I Get?

Now, you’re probably wondering how much burial insurance you can qualify for as a 86-90 year old.

Honestly, the amount can vary, based on the state you live in and which company you have a policy with.

But, if eligible, you may be able to qualify for up to $10,000 in burial insurance.

Initially, this may not sound like much, but think about it.

This amount will go a LONG way in covering your final expenses.  Even if it doesn’t cover the entire amount of your burial, it can cover a significant portion of it and will most certainly be a great help to your beneficiaries.

$10,000 can make a huge difference when it comes to figuring out how to pay for final expenses for a loved one.

And, it can give YOU peace of mind knowing that your final expenses will be covered.

How To Qualify For Life Insurance

So far, I’ve given you information about which life insurance options are available to you, how much coverage you can qualify for, and which companies offer burial insurance for 86-90 year-old seniors.

Now, I’m going to be talking with you about how you can qualify for life insurance coverage.

No matter which life insurance company you choose to go with, you will be required to provide them with personal information regarding your health.

Specifically, they’ll want details regarding your age, health, and hobbies.


The truth is, your age can affect your eligibility and the cost of your plan.

Unfortunately, the older you are, the higher your costs will be.

That’s why it’s really important to not delay purchasing coverage any longer than you have to.

Purchase your life insurance NOW and lock in today’s rates instead of waiting to purchase later on in the future.

If you wait, you risk either having higher premiums or not being eligible for coverage at all.

Don’t delay.  Purchase your life insurance coverage today!


Next, the life insurance company will want to know about your health.

They’ll provide you with a long list of detailed questions that you’ll need to answer.

In particular, they’ll ask things regarding the status of your health, your age, weight, and whether or not you smoke.

It’s very important that you are completely honest about your health.

Make sure to include any relevant information and don’t withhold anything.  Be completely transparent regarding the status of your health.

The life insurance companies will look more favorably on your application if they see that you are doing your best to be up front and honest with them.

So, it’s in your best interests to make sure you answer all questions truthfully and honestly.

The insurance company may also want to know if you have any risky hobbies.

It may seem silly, but they will want to know if you like to participate in high-risk activities such as scuba diving, skydiving or mountaineering.

So, if you do happen to be a thrill-seeker, make sure you are up front and honest with them about it.

Are Exams Required?

Typically, medical exams aren’t required for burial insurance coverage.

If a medical exam isn’t required, then coverage is awarded based on your answers to their initial health questionnaire and the status of your health.

Like I mentioned above, this is why it’s crucial that you answer all health questions honestly.  Especially if a medical exam isn’t required, you’ll want to make sure that the life insurance company views your application in the most positive light.

You definitely don’t want them to reject your application because the information isn’t accurate.
