There are many life insurance options available. We will help you select the right coverage at the lowest price for your needs.

A captive agent only represents a single company. They frequently have several products that their company offers to give you options, but they’re all from the same company with the same underwriting guidelines. If you want to shop the market to get a comparable number of options to an independent agent, you’ll need to call dozens of captive agents.

You other choice is to call us direct at 858-703-6178. We would be happy to discuss your situation in detail and provide you with a quote.

If you need life insurance fast, we can start the application over the phone. We will then wait for an offer of coverage from the insurer you select.

You should also know that even if you are just an occasional user of nicotine products such as if you only smoke a few cigarettes, cigars, chew, or occasionally use e-cigarettes or marijuana, most life insurers will still lump you in the smoking health category.

But, this does not apply to all life insurers as there are some insurers that will give NON-SMOKING rate to infrequent users of these products.

If you are an infrequent user of nicotine products or only smoke the odd marijuana joint, it is vital that use the services of an independent agent. Call us at (888) 905-0333. We will help you navigate the life insurance world and secure a low cost policy.

Permanent Life Insurance Rates for 53 Year Old Men and Women

If you find that a 20 or 30 year term life insurance policy will not be sufficient, there is another INEXPENSIVE option available.

There is a permanent life insurance policy that can provide you with coverage well into your late 80’s and beyond.

The alternative is Guaranteed Universal Life insurance which goes by the acronym as a GUL policy.

This type of policy has become increasingly popular for people in their 50’s and older who do not wish to buy other very permanent life insurance options such as Whole life for example.

Guaranteed Universal life insurance provides a set premium rate to a particular age such as age 90, 95, 100 and up to age 121.

The reason why a GUL policy can be very attractive is because it provides a variety of options which allow you to customize your policy to suit your particular needs.

You can select a policy which provides a cash value accumulation feature or one that does not. Choosing one which does not include a cash value will keep your premiums very low. You do not have to pay more for a cash value portion and will avoid costly management fees.

The length of premium payments is another option that allows you to customize your premium payments.

GUL policies are much more affordable than other types of permanent life insurance. They are a fraction of the cost when comparing what you might pay for a non-guaranteed Universal life insurance policy for example.

Another attractive feature is that you can transfer the cash surrender value of an existing permanent life insurance policy to a GUL policy through a Section 1035 Exchange.

They are an excellent choice if you have a large estate and need cash liquidity to cover estate taxes, including both federal and state estate taxes. These policies are also great if you intend to leave your surviving family members with a financial legacy.

Call us here at Abrams Insurance Solutions at 858-703-6178 to learn more about the features of a Guaranteed Universal Life Insurance Policy.

No Exam Life Insurance Options for 53 Year Olds

affordable life insurance for 53 year olds without a medical exam
You can get affordable life insurance without a medical exam, but taking the exam may save you money.

Although no-exam life insurance is being heavily advertised, we would only recommend this policy for individuals in rare circumstances.

The major benefit of no exam life insurance is that it is extremely easy to obtain. All you generally have to do is answer a few health questions. You can find approval in 48 hours or less.

However, these policies can cost more than what you pay for the same term life insurance amount with a medical exam.

If you are in reasonably good health, we strongly recommend that you consider a term policy with a medical exam first. Following this process can save you a lot of money.

Here, at Abrams Insurance Solutions, we can find you no-exam policies up to $500,000 in coverage. And, we can provide no-exam policies for both Term and Permanent life insurance.

If you need more coverage you can layer or buy more than 1 policy to satisfy all your life insurance needs.

Call us here at Abrams Insurance Solutions at 858-703-6178 if you need no-exam life insurance for 53 year olds.

Affordable Life Insurance for 53 Year Olds

If you aren’t sure about the types of life insurance options, or which is the more affordable life insurance for 53 year olds, we are happy to provide a brief life insurance primer to help you decide.

There are 2 types of life insurance to choose from including:

  • Term Life Insurance
  • Permanent Life Insurance

Low Cost Term Life Insurance for 53 Year Olds

Term life insurance is the simplest form of life insurance you can buy. It is also the cheapest form of life insurance available.

The reason is because it provides death benefits only. And, you buy the insurance in chunks of time which also known as a “term.” You can buy term insurance as:

  • 1 Year Renewable
  • 5 Year term
  • 10 Year Term
  • 15 Year Term
  • 20 Year Term
  • 25 Year Term
  • 30 Year Term
  • Age-Specific (i.e. to age 65, to age 67)
  • Customize your term for specific needs such as a 17 year term (these are only available from a very few companies, but they can be found)

You must choose the length of term wisely because if it is not long enough, then you would have to reapply which the insurer will base on your current age and health status.

Many term policies are available with a conversion option which allows you to convert the term policy to a permanent policy. This can be convenient if your health declines dramatically and they may decline you for a policy. You can convert a term policy without having to answer medical questions or undergo a medical exam.

However, you must convert the policy before the conversion option expires. So keep that in mind.

Other Permanent Life Insurance Options for 53 Year Olds

Permanent life insurance differs quite significantly from term life insurance. Let us help you find affordable permanent life insurance for 53 year olds.

First it offers death benefits in the same manner as a term policy. The first major difference is that a permanent policy is for your entire lifetime.

The second major difference is that in addition to death benefits, permanent life insurance provides a cash value accumulation or investment feature. One example you can use is Indexed Universal Life insurance. Here, a portion of your premium is added to the cash value accumulation portion.

The money is invested by the insurance company either arbitrarily or in the manner you direct them. There is no stock market risk and you can take tax-free distributions from your policy.

Permanent life insurance comes in a variety of types and many hybrid variations as they vary from company to company. However, they basically come in several different types including:

• Whole Life
• Universal Life
• Guaranteed Universal Life

Permanent policies can be an excellent choice for those who have maximized their 401(k) and IRA and need other tax shelter investment options. They are also ideal those who are high income earners or need estate protection and cash liquidity to pay both federal and state estate taxes.
