What is over 50s life insurance?

Over 50s life insurance – typically taken out between the ages of 50 and 80 – is often paid out as a lump sum and can be used to help with financial commitments when you pass away, such as funeral costs, outstanding bills or even as a gift to loved ones.

What are the benefits of this type of cover?

There are two main benefits to over 50s life insurance:

  • This policy type offers guaranteed acceptance, meaning you will qualify for cover regardless of your health or lifestyle
  • A lump sum pay-out in the event of your death is guaranteed. That said, you’ll need to have paid into the policy for a minimum period of time (usually between one and two years).

Your actual age should also be a factor in your decision, as well as your lifestyle and medical background. Learn how term life insurance could be a better option for you if you’re towards the younger end of the over 50s age bracket.

How long is the qualification period for over 50s life insurance?

Insurance providers will set a period of time, known as a qualification period (or moratorium), which takes effect as soon as you’ve bought a policy. Typically between one or two years – you’ll need to survive this qualification period in order for the full agreed amount to be paid to your family.

If you were to pass away within that time, your beneficiaries’ pay-out would be calculated using the amount you’d actually paid in to the policy. Again, this figure that would be paid out could vary between providers so you really need to know the specifics of your life insurance policy before you take it out.

What about life insurance for over 60s and over 70s?

It’s less common to see adverts aimed at life insurance for over 60s, but specific policies do exist. You’ll often find that over 70s life insurance in this country requires you to give more detailed information during an application than a younger applicant may have to supply. You might find that you’re accepted on an over 50s life insurance policy, but some insurance providers might not. However there are plenty of providers who do offer policies for people between the ages of 50-80.
