Height/Weight Underwriting

Most burial life insurance companies will have some type of height to weight ratio that you must fall under or they will not offer any coverage. However this is not the case for all companies.

Some companies have decided that they will not penalize or even ask you about your height and weight, and eve offer the same low prices as a person with olympic athlete type fitness.

These are the companies that we will go over in this article.

Other Health Conditions & Prescriptions

Now, even the companies that do not ask about height and weight will still ask you other types of health questions if you want coverage with no waiting period and rock bottom rates.

Serious health conditions like a heart attack or cancer in the past few years are what we will need to go over, as well as any serious prescription medications you take.

If you don’t have any serious health conditions other than being outside of the weight guidelines, you should have no trouble getting affordable coverage with one of these companies.



Aetna is one of the most well known companies out there in the insurance sector and for good reason. They have many different products and don’t ask you about your height and weight at all.

Aetna also will take niche health conditions that other companies don’t take like COPD, seizures, cancer (if in remission for over 2 years), and heart attacks (if over 1 year ago).

If you are having trouble getting burial life insurance coverage elsewhere because of your weight, Aetna will give you the same low rates as anyone else. Fill out our quote form to get sample rates for Aetna.
