In addition, other life insurance companies offer life insurance plans for seniors, including Mutual of Omaha, Globe Life Insurance, and Colonial Penn, among others.
Each of these companies has different underwriting guidelines for approval so you may want to compare the pricing, coverages offered and when the full amount of life insurance coverage begins, because some plans may have a graded benefit the first 2-3 years.
