Is $600k Term Insurance Better Than $600k Whole Life Insurance?

For the majority of people, term life insurance is a better option than whole life/permanent life insurance. The reason why is that younger people are looking for the most amount of life insurance coverage and at the best price. That is what term life insurance provides. Many people looking for life insurance are looking to protect their; income, spouse, children and debts to a certain age-stage in life. Term life insurance (depending on your age) allows you to choose 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 or even 40 year level term lengths. This means once you are approved the rate won’t change for that time but you can cancel anytime without a plenty.

For most people at a certain age, the kids are grown, the house is paid off or paid down, you have assets and retirement accounts so the need for life insurance is reduced of hopefully even eliminated and therefore you become self-insured. You have a substantial amount money in the bank, have a solid 401k, equity in the house and other assets. The loss financially won’t be as crushing after the term since the kids are adults, the house is paid off, etc. Since whole life insurance is about 5x or more the cost of term life insurance, by having term insurance you can invest the difference. Also, you won’t have the large monthly premium obligation that whole life has. In addition, be obtaining term life insurance and investing he difference, it’s your money. Unlike whole life insurance that is tied up in a policy and you have to pay interest to borrow your own money, if you invest the money yourself you are liquid. This is what Dave Ramsey explains below in the video. Also, Suzy Orman and Clark Howard recommend the same thing.

It is better for the agent if you choose whole life insurance over term life insurance because the premium is much more expensive. Agents are paid based on the annual premium and whole life insurance is about five times or more expensive than term. That is why many agents, especially field agents that don’t produce a lot of business recommend whole life.

Instances where whole life or permanent life are usually better is term life are; if you need estate planning, have a special needs child, want to leave life insurance for a child no matter how long you live, charitable donations to a school or foundation after you pass away.

$600k Term Life Insurance- Wrap Up

There are over 500 life insurance companies in 2021 and choosing the right insurer can be easy if you shop around. Since each life insurance company has their own underwriting guidelines and rate charts, each one will have a different rate, all 500 of them. So a company that may have the lowest rate for one person may not for another. Factors such as your age, height/weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, medications, family history, driving record and many other factors will determine which company will offer the best rates for you. I always recommend to compare rates from multiple highly rated companies to ensure you are getting the best price. You can do this by calling the companies individually and receiving a quote from each one or use a broker/agent that do the shopping for you and knows the underwriting guidelines for each company. This will save you a lot of time and money. The best part, since there is no price difference between going to a company directly or using an agent/broker (not allowed to be different by law) you will have an advocate on your side that can talk to the underwriter if need be to to help you get approved and at the lowest rate.

How to Get The Best Rate for $600,000 ($600k) Life Insurance

  1. Compare Rates

    Each life insurance company has their own underwriting guidelines based on: age, health, height/weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, family history, driving history, etc. so it’s important to shop around and compare rates from multiple life insurance companies.

  2. Fast for the Medical Exam

    For those who opt to take the paramed exam, make sure you fast for 8-12 hours. I recommend taking the paramed first thing in the morning when you wake up before you eat, have coffee or exercise. First thing in the morning is when your blood pressure, weight and other readings will be the lowest.

  3. No Exam Option

    For those who choose to not do the paramed, make sure you shop around. There are many new startups offering no exam life insurance in 2021. While the process for these companies are convenient, they can also be expensive.

Testing Positive for Nicotine (Cotinine) on the Life insurance Paramed Exam- What are your Options?

If you’re reading this article you likely have tested positive for nicotine on your life insurance paramed exam. If this has happened to you, you’re not alone. The good news is there are several options you have and I’ll go over those in more detail below.

The Life Insurance Medical Exam Test for Nicotine

As part of the underwriting process for life insurance, most carriers will do a no-cost 30-minute paramed exam to verify your health. The exam will typically include a small blood and urine sample. The urine sample (urinalysis) can detect several items including nicotine or cotinine.

When someone smokes a cigarette, chews or dips tobacco, smokes a cigar, vapes or is exposed to secondhand smoke, the nicotine is absorbed into the bloodstream. Once this happens the liver breaks down the enzymes which becomes cotinine. This is what is detected on the life insurance medical exam.

How Accurate is the Life Insurance Nicotine Test?

The life insurance nicotine test is extremely accurate and is very rarely incorrect. I had several underwriters tell me the levels they use to detect cotinine are high enough (accurate enough) that they can tell if the applicant actually smoked or sat next to someone who did and inhaled secondhand smoke.

Options if You Tested Positive for Nicotine on the Life Insurance Medical Exam

The good news there are several options you have if you tested positive for nicotine on the life insurance medical exam.

1. Did you smoke a cigar or chew/dip prior to the paramed?

A common reason why someone will test positive for nicotine is they will forget (or didn’t know it would affect it) about the upcoming paramed exam and smoke a cigar on the golf course or at a party prior to the paramed. This will result in a positive nicotine test and the underwriter will think you are a cigarette smoker. If this was the case, the good news that there are a very few select number of carriers that will allow you to pivot over to their company and get a non-tobacco rate if in fact it was a cigar or chew/dip and not a cigarette. (Caveat, you definitely want to be honest. If it was a cigarette and not a cigar or chew/dip/pipe, don’t lie, it’s not worth it. All life insurance polices are contestable in the first two years if you pass away and were dishonest on your application.)

2. Accept a 10-Year Term and Reapply in 12 Months

If you did smoke a cigarette prior to the paramed and tested positive for nicotine/cotinine, you will have to wait 12 months from the date of the paramed exam (if you don’t smoke after that) to receive a non-tobacco rate. If you currently don’t have any life insurance coverage, you still will need to protect your family, business, income, children, etc. for the next 12 months. Many people will accept the shortest term available which is a 10 year term so the rate is more affordable and their family is still protected if anything unexpected were to happened in the next 12 months. Also, if their health changes or you do smoke again, at least the rate is locked in for the next 10 years. Also, you can cancel anytime without a penalty which most people will do after 12 months if they haven’t smoked a cigarette and will reapply for a new policy at that time, which will provide peace of mind knowing their family is protected in the interim.

3. Accept a Coverage Amount and Term That is Affordable and Reapply in a 12 Months

This is similar to number two above, the difference being some people like to accept a 15, 20 or even 30 year term in an effort to “hedge their bets” so to speak. In case your health changes in the next 12 months or however long it takes to not smoke a cigarette for 12 full months straight, and God forbid you develop cancer, have a heart attack or some other unforeseen health event, then you still have the policy locked for the next 10, 15, 20 or 30 years.

The good part is you can still cancel anytime without a penalty and reapply in 12 months since after the paramed, or after your last cigarette and get the better rates. However, if you health changes in the next 12 months your family is still covered for the term you select and the rate won’t change. Many people like this peace of mind.

3. Not Accept and Wait 12 Months and Reapply

This is the least recommend option unless you currently have life insurance and are replacing a current policy.. You do not want to leave your family unprotected, even for a year. You just never know. Not only could you pass away in the next 12 months but your health could change leaving you uninsuranble. If someone doesn’t have life insurance and does have a spouse, children, mortgage, etc. I always recommend to “bite the bullet” and pay the higher premium for a year (and or lower the coverage or change to a 10 year term for the next 12 months) then reapply in 12 months so your loved ones are covered and you will have that peace of mind.

Wrap UpTesting Positive for Nicotine (Cotinine) on the Life insurance Paramed Exam- What are your Options?

If you applied for life insurance and tested positive for nicotine (cotinine) and your rate increased, you’re not alone. I have helped hundreds of applicants in this situation. The options I outlined above are the ones I recommend. Most people who don’t currently have life insurance will accept a policy that is affordable so their family is covered now. Then they will reapply in 12 months after the paramed exam (a long as they don’t smoke a cigarette in the next 12 months) for the lower rate. You “bite the bullet” so to speak and pay a higher premium for the next 12 months but your family is protected (as well as hedge against in your health changes in the next year) so both you and your family will have the peace of mind knowing they won’t be financially devastated if anything unexpected were to happen to you.

Does a testosterone or estrogen supplement affect life insurance?

When talking to people about their life insurance medications, it’s common that many people are on a hormone supplement therapy for added testosterone (typically for low T) or estrogen (typically for menopause). I wanted to quickly address if this will affect life insurance rates.

Testosterone or estrogen medication and life insurance

The good news is that taking a testosterone supplement for men or estrogen supplement for women will not your affect life insurance rates. In the 4k life insurance policies I have placed in-force, I can never recall one time where it affected the rate. Whether you are taking the injection, gel, patch or tablet, taking a hormone medication should not affect your life insurance.

If you have any questions on how life insurance works or what is right for you and your family don’t hesitate to call me to discuss your needs. No obligation or commitment. Also, feel free to run as many quotes as you like on our instant quoter.

Underwriting

Getting approved for a million dollar life insurance policy at 50 years old can be an easy process. I will put the steps below.

  1. Shop the market and choose the life insurance company with the best rate for your health profile.
  2. Complete the application.
  3. Complete the free paramed exam or phone interview for no exam policies.
  4. Wait for underwriting approval.
  5. Review and active policy.

The paramed for a life insurance policy for a 50 year old man will require a simple 30 minute free paramed exam that includes, height, wight, blood pressure and a small blood and urine sample. This is to verify you are healthy to receive the lowest rate.

Conclusion

A 50-year old man seeking a million life insurance policy can have a sigh of relief that the premiums are very affordable. With major advancements in modern medicine and increases in life expectancy, life insurance companies have followed suit to lower the premiums for those age 50 and above. As you saw in the tables, a 50 year old male can qualify for a one million life policy on a 10 year fixed term for $70 month and a 20 year term for $134 month! Life insurance is based on your age and health, so it’s imperative to lock in the rate while you are younger and healthy.

How Statins Affect Life Insurance

Statin medications are some of the most popular medications in the country today and thus a common question is if statins affect life insurance underwriting. Statins are taken to lower cholesterol and to reduce the risk from heart disease and stroke. It’s also not uncommon for someone to be prescribed a statin to use in combination if they are have diabetes and taking Metformin. Some of the most prescribed statins are Simvastatin (generic for Zocor), Atorvastatin (generic for Lipitor) and Pravastatin (Pravachol). 1

Will Taking A Statin Affect My Life Insurance Rates?

The short answer is no. Nearly every carrier I represent such as; Prudential, Pacific Life, AIG, Mutual of Omaha, Protective Life, Banner Life, etc. will not penalize you for taking a statin.

Fortunately, life insurance companies underwrite cholesterol by looking at your actual readings (total cholesterol, HDL ratio and triglycerides), whether you’re on a medication or not is not a factor. The industry uses the terms treated or untreated, which just means they just look at the actual readings, the numerical values, and whether you’re taking a medication is not relevant.

Additional Information about Statins & Life Insurance

As discussed, if you had elevated cholesterol readings in the past and now it’s now controlled with a statin drug (even multiple medications are ok) it will not affect your rate today. Also, for those who just took a life insurance paramed exam and found out you had elevated cholesterol, HDL ratio or triglycerides you can go to your doctor and go on a cholesterol reducing medication. Once your levels are back to normal and controlled, you can then reapply and get the best rate. From my experience, statins work very well at lower cholesterol and very quickly.

Options Available After The Paramed Exam With High Cholesterol

1. Have a broker compare your current readings from the paramed exam to the other top carriers’ guidelines and pivot over to them.

2. Once you’re approved, place the policy so you’re covered, (even on a 10 year term to make the premium lower) then go to your doctor and see if he or she recommends diet and exercise and or medication to reduce your cholesterol. Once your levels are back to normal, you can reapply. As mentioned earlier, treated or untreated typically will not affect the rate or underwriting.

3. Accept the new rate at a higher premium.

4. Decline the coverage and work on getting your readings back to normal then reapply. This is not recommended if you currently don’t have coverage since you would leave your family unprotected in the interim. Also, as mentioned you can reshop the other top carriers immediately, and also place the policy (even on a 10 year term to keep the cost down) and just reapply once your levels are back to normal (3 months, 6 months, etc). There is no penalty for doing that as life insurance policies are unilateral contacts and you can go month-to-month and cancel anytime.

Statin medications are among the most commonly prescribed medications in the country. As such, life insurance companies view them as safe and will not affect life expectancy.

However, every life insurance company has their own guidelines when it comes to cholesterol, therefore it’s imperative, before and even after the life insurance paramed exam to shop around to see which carrier will offer the best rate for your cholesterol readings and health situation.
