Fully Underwritten Policies offered by Mutual of Omaha

When considering from among the different types of life insurance policies it is important that you understand you own needs and what product will best meet your specific needs and objectives.

Many times people will automatically default to term life vs permanent life because of the lower price tag. However, you do yourself and your family a disservice if you make price your #1 priority. With that in mind, MOO offers several term and permanent policies, starting with Term Life Answers.

Term Life Answers

Term Life Answers is level term life insurance coverage for 10, 15, 20, and 30 years.

Available Term Riders
  • Convertible life insurance to age 75 to any of the Company’s Universal Life products.
  • Annual Renewable Term to age 95.

  • Waiver of Premium for Unemployment rider which waives premiums for the base plan and all riders if the insured becomes unemployed.
  • Accidental death benefit rider.

  • Patricia S

    Looking to get life insurance for my husband. At least a $250,000 plan. I need to know what plan to get and how much it would be per month.

    • Patricia,

      We’d be happy to help you with some quotes, we’re just going to need to learn a few things about your husband (age, height, weight, etc…) before we can provide you with an accurate monthly quote.

      Why don’t you just give us a call when you have a chance and we’ll see what we can do.



  • Rodolfo B

    Im Age 39 no smoker health $250k,$500k with 3 child rider life insurance quote .

  • Shirley B

    Can you borrow from this policy?

    • Shirley,

      We would need to know more about “which” life insurance policy that you are referring to.



  • I’ve read many reviews on your guaranteed issue for $25,000 with no health exam and no health questions, and the complaints have all been that claims were not paid even though the deaths occurred after the graded period of 2 years. My husband has health issues and I want to purchase this policy, but I’m very hesitant. This would be a very traumatic time alone without having to worry about a death benefit being paid. Please explain why so many policy owners are of the same opinion. How quickly will claims be paid approximately? Also, I understand the graded time for accidents is 14 days. Please confirm. And is there double indemnity for accidents?

    • Kathryn,

      You’ve brought up a lot of great concerns and questions in your comment here which is why we would advise you to just give us a call when you have a chance so that we can go over each in greater detail.
      That being said, we’d also like to provide you with just a little bit of advice.
      When it comes to buying life insurance, there are generally three key “helpful hints” that will go a long way to ensure that you don’t have any regrets later on down the line, and here they are:

      1. Choose to work with a well know insurance company, that has a great AM Best Rating (AM Best is a third party organization that rates insurance companies based on their financial strength).

      2. Be sure that you totally understand what “type” of life insurance you’re purchasing and ask a ton of questions. Questions such as:

      – How much coverage am I getting?
      – How much will my insurance cost, and is this price guaranteed for the life of the policy?
      – How long will my insurance coverage last?
      – Does my policy contain a Graded Death Benefit or any other clauses which could prevent my family from receiving the insurance benefit?

      3. Read your policy!

      – It’s amazing how few people actually take the time to actually read their life insurance policy once they have received it. So… if you want to avoid any unexpected surprises about your life insurance policy, reading it is always a good place to start!



  • dannie C.

    That’s my daughters email and number if and questions 931-XXX-XXXX cell and home 931-XXX-XXXX want to get insurance so my daughter is taken care of and my grand babies thank u

  • Peggy Ferguson

    Your info sent to me almost seems too good to be true when compared to others. Was sent Graded Benefit Individual Whole Insurance info. Was told 25,000.00 Policy for 63 yr old would be 103.50 a month. Two year wait till full 25,000.00 would be paid. No health questions. Is this true. I was speaking to a neighbor and she said a member of her family had passed yrs ago and the same policy didn’t pay off. That she had died from hepititus which caused the non payment but hadn’t had it at time of taking out insurance.

    • Peggy,
      We weren’t able to locate you in our files, so it may be that you were sent information directly from Mutual of Omaha.
      Without knowing more about your particular case, it would be impossible to determine if the information that you were quoted is completely accurate or not.
      What we can tell you is that Mutual of Omaha is a great company, and that, if you’re looking to purchase a Guaranteed issue life insurance policy, there won’t be any medical questions asked. So we know that that part is true.
      Additionally, once the Graded death benefit has expired, the policy will pay out it full death benefit regardless of cause of death (another part that is true).

      So from what you’ve stated, there doesn’t seem like there is anything that sounds “suspicious”.

      That being said however, we would recommend that you give us a call so that we can compare Mutual of Omaha’s guaranteed issue policy with several others that we also offer so that you’re sure to get a great deal.
      If it turns out that Mutual of Omaha is the right choice, we’ll also be able to walk you through their application and get that set up for you right away.
