He has diabetes and heart trouble. Is it possible to get someone at that age insured for life insurance?
Yes, you may be able to find a life insurance company that would provide life insurance for a man age 70 with health issues.
However, the price for the life insurance will be high and the amount of life insurance coverage will be low.
In addition, the type of life insurance available will probably be a graded death benefit life insurance plan that does not provide full coverage until the person has been insured for at least 2 years by the life insurance policy.
However, guaranteed acceptance life insurance plans usually offer life insurance for people age 78 and udner wihtout any physical exam being required.
But, it may be cheaper to just save money each month in a savings account to help pay for final expenses, instead of paying for a life insurance policy, at this point in time. It really depends on how long he will live.
