Let’s Go Over Everything You Need to Know Step by Step
1. Your budget for your new life insurance policy?
This is an extremely important question so your new plan can comfortably fit into your budget allowance so paying the premium every month will not become a financial burden to you. You can activate our instant quoting system to get a look at your options and perspective premiums. You will want to purchase enough life insurance to cover your financial liabilities but not if it is going to break the bank. Only you know what you can afford so this should be an easy step for you.
2. What kind of policy should you apply for?
The two main plan designs are Term Life insurance which is a temporary form of life insurance. Term life insurance is usually purchased within a term period of 10 to 30 years. Banner Life Insurance Company now also offers 35 and 40-year terms periods also. The other plan designed is Universal Life Insurance, which is a permanent form of coverage that will last forever. Universal life does cost more, but it does offer you coverage for the full length of your life as long as you continue paying your premiums.
Keep in mind that final expense insurance can be a good product especially if you are a senior citizen looking for just burial insurance for funeral and final expenses. All you have to do in this step is to determine how long you need your life insurance.
3. Do you have any medical conditions?
Medical conditions are what life insurance companies pay special attention to. Especially if they are the types of conditions that can prove fatal down the road. As we get older, medical issues seem to always slip into our lives regardless of what we do to prevent them. We have to pay special attention to medical conditions if you have any.
Make a list of any medical concerns you have and the prescription drugs you use for them. Some life conditions put more or less weight on a given medical condition than other carriers would. Naturally, you want to apply with a more friendly company for your health issues. We can pre-screen your conditions so you know what to expect before you apply.
4. What life insurance companies should you apply with?
What carrier to apply with will depend on your health history and other main considerations. Because all life insurance companies underwrite their applications differently such as hazardous occupations, tobacco use, and dangerous sports. Careful thinking and planning have to be considered to make sure which company would be the best fit for you. We always make sure we have our clients apply with the most applicable company. Make a note to discuss any specific companies you would feel more comfortable applying with.
5. Apply over the telephone quickly & easily!
You mainly have three options to apply for life insurance. The first approach involves a long-drawn-out paper application with approximately 20 pages or more. This was a sure-fire way to induce writer’s cramp and is obsolete, but still an option. The second way came several years later which was for the online application to be completed on your computer over the internet. Both of these methods took considerable time and had their complications.
Many computer users complained of technical issues with the online application software. If you do not have a computer or internet connection, this is no longer an option. The best way to apply is through the telephone application which takes about 15 minutes to complete. All you have to do is listen to the question and then answer the question. Nothing could be simpler. Applying over the telephone is a joy, trust me!
