What Length of Term Insurance Should Someone in his Sixties Purchase?

If you are currently working and need the term life insurance to replace lost income in the event of your death, think about how many years you plan to work, and cover yourself for at least that length.  Typically in your sixties, just 10 – 15 years will suffice, and the average cost of purchasing a shorter term policy will be lower than a longer term contract.

10, 15, 20, and 25 year Term Available Through Age 69

When you are younger, every type of life insurance is available to you from 10 year term to 30 year term, and even 40 year term (only a few carriers offer this at younger ages.)

Now that you’re in your sixties, however, you may wonder if all term lengths are available to you.

Unfortunately, once you hit age 60, you can no longer buy 30 or 40 year term.  You can however, buy 10, 15, 20 and 25 year term life insurance up to 65 years old.  Once you hit 66 years old, you can only buy 10, 15, and 20 year.

Key Questions for Determining Type of Insurance Needed:

  • Will you still need this coverage 10 to 20 years from now?
  • Are you still working?  – If so, perhaps you only need term until you retire.
  • What is your budget?  – Term is cheaper than permanent coverage, and you can buy a lot more term coverage for the same premium as permanent coverage.
  • Do you have an estate planning need?  See below.

Life Insurance for Estate Liquidity or Taxes

Your reason for purchasing life insurance may be more long term.  Perhaps you need the coverage for estate planning, such as to fund a bypass or A-B Trust.  Perhaps there is no need for coverage, per se.  You simply want to leave an inheritance.

For longer term goals, I recommend purchasing a term policy which will provide coverage into your eighties or nineties.  This will most likely be a 20 year term or 30 year term policy.  (Note: You can structure a guaranteed universal life insurance policy to provide coverage only until age 90 or 95, and it kicks the pants of the lifetime coverage policies!)

Whole Life Insurance 60-69 Years Old

Still, there are those for whom a 15 or 20 year term policy will not suffice.  If your parents lived into their eighties or nineties, you might consider purchasing a whole life or universal life insurance policy.  These are permanent policies designed to provide coverage to age 100, or in some cases, up to 120.

The main difference between whole life and universal life insurance is the premiums.  Whole life costs about double what universal life costs typically.  However, since whole life policies charge so much more premium, they also typically grow in cash value much better than in universal life insurance.

For whole life insurance quotes, call us at 877-443-9467.

Moving Forward with an Application

To apply for coverage, this is the process.

  1. Get a quote online or by calling us
  2. We’ll help you apply over the phone or send a written application
  3. You will likely need to take a medical exam
  4. Approval takes approximately 4-6 weeks, on average
  5. You pay your first premium and make your policy effective

It’s highly recommended to find the lowest cost term life insurance rates to use an independent agency that can shop your case with your particular medical issues amongst multiple carriers. For more information about us, please visit our About Us page and my .

Consider the quality of the insurance company offering you the premium quote. Typically, insurance companies with stronger financial ratings that have been in business for many years offer a better investment prospect than newer companies with poorer performance reviews.

You’re looking at about $54 per month for 10 year term. To lock in the premium for longer than 10 years, the premium increases from there. Call me to discuss your life insurance needs at 877-443-9467.

Hi Neal, Unfortunately I waited much too lomg to get insurance. I was a smoker (have COPD) and got lung cancer this year. (I no longer smoke) They removed 1/3 of my lung and I was in stage 2. I did 4 rounds of chemo and they said they think they got it all. But will go back for periodic testing to make sure. I am a borderline diabetic and had had some kidney stones issues. But I still cut my own grass and work 3 days a week at a Convenience store. (I am retired USN of 20 years) My wife is 56 and we have two daughters that we adopted at birth and they are now 13 & 16. I feel bad about putting insurance on the back burner. My wife has been home for years & I worry about what is to come for them if anything should happen to me. Am I eligible for any insurance at all? Please respond~

Looking to purchase additional life insurance in order to pay off my mortgage as well as take care care of my funeral and any debt expenses I may have when I pass. I have one 30 yr policy purchased on or around 2001, but that will only take care of a portion of the above since I had to take out an equity loan on my home. I am also concerned about the possibility of outliving my present life insurance policy and would like advice re same. Lastly, I want to be able to set up a four small trusts for my children and my infant granddaughter through my attorney utilizing insurance and would like to know how to go about this. I want to be able to leave my loved ones with something when I am gone as I realize that the financial climate they are facing will make it difficult for them to attain those necessities that were easier for my generation to attain. I am 61, active, healthy, non-smoker, no meds, preferred plus. Also, other of my family members are looking to purchase life insurance. NY resident(s).

I am a 62 years old Florida resident, non-smoker, and remarried 3 years ago. I had prostate cancer (it was removed 2 years ago) and have been given a clean bill of health since. I have a whole life policy bought around 1980 and just bought a home in June. I would like a $75,000 term life for 20 years to cover final expenses and the balance of my mortgage when I pass as I am worried I might outlive my current policy. I want my wife not to worry about mortgage payments and my burial. I am on a fixed income so I cannot afford an expensive premium. Can you help?

Chris Huntley December 12, 2012 at 2:04 pm

Hello Angel,
Yes, I’d be happy to help you. Assuming your pre-treatment PSA was not too high and current PSA is at or near 0, you should be able to get a Standard Offer (assuming you qualify otherwise). For a 75K 20 year term, you’d be looking around $120 per month. Call me with any questions or to apply at 877-443-9467.

My husband is 69 yo. Turns 70 0n September 10, 2013. He is an American Citizen and also an Australian citizen. We live in Australia. He is very healthy, but does take 15 mg blood pressure tablets and has been diagnosed with sleep apnoea. His father did pass away with a heart attack. He is working currently and earns a good salary, however we have a home debt of A$700,000 and his daughter’s private school fees for the next 6 years. We envisage he will work for 5 more years. However, if something happens to him in the meantime, I do not want to lose the house due to not being able to repay the mortgage. I am also working, but would not be able to cover the mortgage repayments. Can we get a term policy for 10 years and what would the monthly outlay be. Living in Australia, can this be done by email, mail or does he have to come back to America for the paperwork? Thank you very much for your help.

Chris Huntley February 7, 2013 at 3:03 pm

Hi Eileen,
He has to come to the U.S. for every stage of the life insurance underwriting process: the application, underwriting, and to receive the policy.

I’ll email you with more details.

I am looking to purchase life insurnace for my aging farther and mother. Based on my research I believe term life is the best vehicle for what we are trying to accomplish.
Question #1 – Are you licensed in NC?
Question #2 – Are there any issues of who makes the payments?

Thanks

Hello Johnny,
Yes, I am licensed in NC. License #0008274215.

If you have insurable interest (in other words, if you would be at a financial loss upon their passing), you can be the owner, payer, and beneficiary w/out any issues.
