Security National Life’s underwriting is a little more strict and has a maximum coverage amount of $10,000.

You can expect to pay similar rates to Aetna.

Other Options

If these costs are too expensive for you at this age, unfortunately there are no other insurance options. At this point your best option if not getting life insurance is to pre-pay for as much as you can at the funeral home.

You can also add a loved one to a bank account so that when you die, they have access to the funds.

You can also look into doing a cremation instead of a traditional funeral and burial to save money.

Tips To Save On Insurance

Our tips to save on insurance for seniors over 85 are the same for any age. You need to work with someone like Seniors Mutual to shop around and find the best rates for you.

Even at this age bracket, you may not qualify with all of the above companies. Aetna may deny you if you have serious health conditions, for example.

Working with an independent agency brokerage is the best way to save on your insurance.

Another thing to keep in mind is that a few thousand dollars of insurance is better than nothing at all. If $10,000 in coverage is too much, think about doing something smaller like $3,000-$5,000. Something like that would be better for your family than nothing at all, and it is guaranteed to go to them.
