There are two types of final expense insurance.
Simplified Life Insurance: The premiums are typically lower than Guaranteed Issue policies. With Simplified Life you of course will need answer medical questions, but, not have to take a physical examination. You do not need to have a blood or urine test. Based on the answers you give, the insurance company will determine if you qualify. With Simplified Life you can qualify for coverage up to $50,000.
Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance: The premiums are typically much higher because there are no medical questions or examination. This is usually what you see on TV commercials and other advertising. The coverage is also much lower, normally $25,000, or less. In addition this policy may have a death clause, which means, if you die within a certain period after the issue date, your beneficiaries will not receive the full benefit. Instead, they may receive the paid premium back with possible interest at a 10% annual rate.
