What is Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance?

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance is simply a life insurance policy that is offered to people who cannot get any other type of life insurance coverage. It’s typically a whole life insurance policy with guaranteed acceptance and requires no health questions or medical exams.

Guaranteed Issue Whole Life is offered to men and woman ages 45 to 85. Because everyone is accepted, these polices are more expensive than other types of coverage. There is typically a waiting period (most guaranteed polices have a 24-month waiting period) before a death benefit is paid out. If you pass away before the waiting period is up, your premiums are refunded to the beneficiary with interest!

What Are The Disadvantages of Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance?

In this section, we want to explain to you that there are disadvantages to purchasing a guaranteed issue life insurance policy. Here’s a quick breakdown of these disadvantages:

Waiting Period Explained for Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance

The most important thing for you to understand is that there will be a waiting period before a death benefit is paid out. Typically, there is a 2-year waiting period. If you pass away before the waiting period is over, your beneficiary will only receive back the premiums you paid along with interest.

Example: You purchased a $10,000 guaranteed life insurance policy that has a 2-year waiting period on the death benefit. This means that if you pass way during the 2-year waiting period, your beneficiary will be refunded your premiums plus interest on that money (most common interest rate paid is 10%). After the two year waiting period is up, your beneficiary will receive the full $10,000 death benefit amount.

Low Coverage Amounts: $3000 to $25,000 in Death Benefit

Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance is great for folks looking for smaller amounts of coverage like $4000, $7000, $20,000 or even $25,000. But, it’s definitely a disadvantage if you need more coverage. Often times, we are able to help our clients secure a graded benefit or even level benefit whole life insurance that will provide much more coverage.

Here’s more information on other guaranteed whole life insurance options:

Are There Other Life Insurance Options Available?

Yes, the good news is some people can qualify for coverage without a waiting period.

In a nutshell, there are 3 different types of whole life insurance coverage that pays out benefits in the $3,000 to $25,000 death benefit range. These policies are often used for funeral costs, burial expenses, and other final expenses. The 3 options are:

  1. Level Benefit Coverage: This is guaranteed whole life insurance with no waiting period on the death benefit. You will have full coverage on the death benefit from day 1 the policy is placed in-force. Said another way, your beneficiary will have access to your full death benefit immediately if something happens to you.
  2. Graded Benefit Coverage: A graded benefit whole life insurance plan is a type of policy that will pay out a percentage of the specified death benefit during the first few (usually two) years. For example, in year 1 the percentage is 25% graded benefit and 50% in year 2. So if you pass away in year 1, your beneficiary gets paid 25% of your death benefit or 50% if you pass away during year 2. After 2 years, your beneficiary can receive the full death benefit.
  3. Guaranteed Issue Coverage: This is whole life insurance with a waiting period, which is usually two years. This means you’ll have to wait 24 months before your beneficiary is eligible to receive your full death benefit. If you pass away during the 2-year waiting period, your beneficiary only receives the premiums you paid into the policy along with interest on that money (usually 10% interest). After 2 years, your waiting period expires and your beneficiary can receive the full death benefit when you pass away.
