Affordable Life Insurance for a 21 year old
Buying life insurance while in your 20’s is a perfect time to lock in a great rate on either term life or whole life insurance. At age 21, what you’re going to find is that life insurance is really inexpensive. So inexpensive that usually the hardest thing about buying life insurance at age 21 is understanding all your options.
For this reason, clients in their 20’s should consider locking down a policy based on “price” not on the actual amount of coverage. The reason for this is that at age 21, a million dollar life insurance policy may seem crazy, but when your 30 or 40 it may be what you really need. So if you lock in a million dollar life insurance policy at age 21 you could save yourself thousands of dollars later on in life.
Client will often say that they just need a $100,000 dollars in coverage now but fail to realize that for $5 or $10 more a month they could be looking at having $500,000 to $1,000,000 dollars in coverage.
So rather than buy what you think you need, determine how much you want to spend and then look for a policy that will give you the most benefit for that amount.
Easy to qualify for:
Qualifying for life insurance at age 21 should also be pretty easy because as stated before, most 21 year old’s are in pretty good health. At age 21 few have been clinically diagnosed with conditions that might make qualifying for life insurance more difficult or more expensive such as:
- High cholesterol.
- High blood pressure.
Now if you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions already, it’s not the end of the world, it just makes getting life insurance now all the more urgent. As you grow older, these health conditions may make life insurance very hard to get or may keep you from being able to get life insurance at all.
More options to choose from:
Buying life insurance at age 21 allows applicants to pick and choose among dozens of different options which may or may not be available to older applicants. For example, life insurance polices such as:
- Return of Premium Insurance policies.
- Whole Life Insurance policies.
- And Universal Life Insurance policies.
These policies should be considered as viable options for most 21 year old’s simply because at age 21 they could be really affordable and provide some significant benefits that traditional term policies simply don’t have.
However, you need to do a thorough needs analysis to make sure your family is properly insured. If you have to choose between a long term or a whole life policy at the detriment of the correct face amount, you might want to choose a shorter term policy that allows you to get the necessary face amount. It is better to have a bigger face amount policy that a longer term because you may not need life insurance down the road, but you definitely need it now.
