If you suffered an amputation due to an accident, you may qualify for quality, first-day burial insurance coverage. However, there are variables that play a role in your insurability.
Activities Of Daily Living

These are what health professionals call “activities of daily living.”
If you can perform your activities of daily living independently, then your amputation history should have little effect on your ability to qualify for burial insurance.
However, if you do have a CNA or home health care professional that assists, then it is more likely than not that your best choice for coverage is a guaranteed acceptance whole life insurance plan.
When amputees lose their legs, it is common to utilize the assistance of a wheelchair or walker.
In my experience as a burial insurance specialist, using a wheelchair may have an impact on your ability to qualify for burial insurance coverage.
