Burial Insurance for Patients with Cancer
When it comes to burial insurance for individuals who have had or currently have cancer, you may be relieved to know that there are indeed options available. It’s important to remember that a cancer diagnosis does not automatically exclude you from obtaining life insurance.
In fact, there are specialized plans known as guaranteed issue life insurance that are designed to provide coverage to virtually everyone, regardless of their medical history. These plans prioritize acceptance and understanding, ensuring that individuals with a cancer history or current diagnosis can still access the coverage they need for their final expenses.
How to get a burial insurance for cancer patients
When it comes to obtaining burial insurance for cancer patients, whether you have had cancer in the past or currently have it, there are options available specifically tailored to your unique situation. We understand that navigating this process can feel overwhelming, but we are here to guide you through it with empathy and support.
During the application process, you will only be asked a few questions about your cancer diagnosis. These questions aim to gather essential information such as the type of cancer you have had or currently have, the timing of your last treatment, and the frequency of your cancer diagnoses. By providing this information, we can better understand your specific needs and find a company that will offer you the coverage you require at the best available price.
It’s important to be transparent and honest throughout this process. While it is true that most insurance companies may decline coverage if you currently have cancer, we want to assure you that there are still policies available to you. These policies, known as guaranteed issue life insurance, are designed to provide coverage for individuals in situations similar to yours, even if you have been declined by other insurers.
It’s important to consider that if you have had cancer or received treatment within the last two years, any life insurance policy you are offered will come with a waiting period of two years before the full benefits are available.
In the unfortunate event of your passing, unless it is due to an accident, the insurance company will not immediately pay out the full death benefit. However, please take comfort in knowing that your beneficiaries will receive at least the premiums you have paid, and there may be a possibility of additional interest being included.
There are two types of cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, that are exceptions to this waiting period. If you have been diagnosed with these forms of cancer, it will not impact your ability to obtain final expense life insurance without any waiting period.
We understand that navigating insurance policies can be complex, especially when considering your health history. Our team is here to provide support and guidance, ensuring you have a clear understanding of your options.
Cost of burial insurance for cancer patients
It is true that guaranteed life insurance often comes with a higher premium compared to other policies. In some cases, it can be as much as double the premium of a regular policy.
However, we want to assure you that our agency is dedicated to finding the best possible solution for you. We work diligently to shop your policy with the highest-rated insurance companies, leveraging our expertise to drive down the cost. While the premium may still be higher than a normal policy due to the associated risk, we strive to make it much more affordable for you.
You’re cancer-free now but have had it within the past few years
If you have been cancer-free with no treatment for at least two years, your prospects for obtaining life insurance become much more favorable. We can work together to find a policy that does not require a waiting period. Additionally, you will notice a significant improvement in the premiums, making the coverage more affordable for you.
For those who haven’t had cancer or received treatment for more than three years, not only will you qualify for a policy without a waiting period, but you will also be eligible for the best rates available. We understand that this is an important consideration for you, and we are committed to finding the most suitable options that align with your current health status.
