Life Insurance For Veterans

The VA will only pay $796 if you are in a VA hospital when you die, and only $300 to a veteran’s family if they die outside of the VA hospital. Furthermore, they will only pay you $796 for a plot, hardly enough to cover burial expenses these days.

Life insurance or burial insurance can cover the remaining expenses, and lock in a low rate while you’re young.

Whole Life Vs Term Life For Veterans

For most people middle-aged and older, a small final expense whole life insurance plan is usually the best option. These whole life plans are very small and are made to cover final expenses such as the funeral, burial, or cremation.

However, some veterans still have mortgages or other debt of some kind that they don’t want to leave as a burden on their families when they pass.

Here is a breakdown of each option.

Final Expense Whole Life (Burial Insurance)

  • Rates locked in for life (never increase)
  • Guaranteed payout (never expires)
  • No medical exam
  • Small coverage amounts ($2,000-$50,000)
  • Builds cash value

Term Life

  • Rates locked in for the term length
  • Renewable up to age 95 (rates increase annually after the term ends)
  • Medical exam and non-medical exam available
  • Larger coverage amounts ($25,000-$1,000,000+)
  • No cash value
  • Cheaper than whole life

Does USAA Offer Life Insurance For Veterans?

Yes, USAA does offer life insurance for members.

I am actually a USAA member myself, thanks to my family.

However, the rates I have seen from USAA are pricey and they will not offer coverage to people with serious health conditions or disabilities. I recommend looking at the companies we offer at Seniors Mutual to save hundreds or even thousands a year instead.

However, working with an independent agency gives you access to all of the top companies that will accept you.

For final expense whole life insurance for veterans, you can get coverage up to age 90 with the companies we work with, such as Aetna, Mutual of Omaha, and others.
