As folks grow older and suffer from disease and weakness, many lose their capability to move freely. Moreso, many require tools such as walking canes, walkers, and wheelchairs to move from one area to the next. There are many reasons this happens. People suffer from arthritis as they age. Others suffer from worsening illnesses such as diabetes. Or from neurological disorders like multiple sclerosis.
Either way, using a wheelchair has direct implications on qualifying for quality burial insurance.
Let’s talk about your options.

Can I Get Coverage If I Use A Wheelchair?
The short answer is yes!
The long answer is this: As long as your age fits the insurance company’s requirements, you’ll qualify for some sort of final expense burial insurance.
Occasional Wheelchair Use – Can Walk Without Assistance If Necessary
Many people only use a wheelchair when they anticipate the need to travel longer distances. Commonly, folks will use a wheelchair to comfortably move around when shopping at the local grocery storey.
If these people were to walk, because of their illness or disease, they would quickly lose energy, require rest, and potentially hurt themselves.
Therefore, many utilize electric wheelchairs or scooters to conveniently move around with pain.
However, at home, they move around upright without wheelchair use. They will either walk independently of any equipment whatsoever, or use a cane or walker.
If this describes you, you could qualify for standard or preferred life insurance rates. And in the most circumstances, you’ll be able to get fully covered from the first day.
Wheelchair Bound – Cannot Walk – Does All Activities Of Daily Living Independently
While many people use wheelchairs to move only for longer distances, there are those who are wheelchair bound, completely dependent upon them to move.
The reasons are plentiful. Many are paralyzed from car crashes. Others suffer from debilitating diseases like arthritis.
The key to applying for quality burial insurance is to determine if you can do activities of daily living independently of others.
The question your insurance agent will ask you is, “Can you perform activities of daily living on your own? Or do you need assistance from someone else?”
Activities of daily living include things like:
- Washing your hair
- Taking a bath
- Preparing food
- Taking medications
- Getting dressed on your own
- Using the bathroom on your own.
While this is not a complete list, if you can do these types of activities on your own, it’s likely you could qualify for first day burial insurance coverage.
The trick is to find final expense companies that disregard wheelchair usage as long as you can perform your activities of daily living.
And there are a few life insurance carriers out there that do.
Wheelchair Bound – Cannot Complete Some Or All Activities Of Daily Living
If you require assistance from a loved one or nurse to do activities of daily living, and are wheelchair-bound, your only option is guaranteed acceptance life insurance.
In a nutshell, guaranteed acceptance life insurance does not ask health questions. However, you must wait 2 years before you’re fully covered for natural causes of death.
And while this isn’t necessarily what I want to get for my clients, it’s the only choice that you’ll most likely qualify for.
And the sooner you start the waiting period process, the better! Eventually you will be fully covered. So start that process as soon as possible.
