If your health is good, especially at the older ages, then you’ll probably be better off buying another life insurance product.
But if you like simple and easy to qualify for, then this product may be perfect for you.
Great for Diabetics, Overweight, Non-CAD Heart Issues
If you have type 1 or type 2 diabetes and/or if you are overweight and/or if you have non-coronary artery type of heart disease like cardiomyopathy, arrhythmia, valve disorders or if you have a defibrillator, then this coverage could be a great option for you.
Again, as long as you are actively at work and can answer NO to the 7 questions above, you will qualify for this coverage.
This is also definitely a product you should consider purchasing before applying to any other insurance companies.
The reason is that as soon as any other insurance company declines you, you’ll no longer be able to qualify for this coverage.
Don’t worry, you’ll be under no obligation to keep this policy for any period of time. So if you place this coverage inforce and then find a better rate/value, you can simply cancel this coverage.
What Is Guaranteed Level Premium Term To Age 100?
While no other insurance companies currently offer this, it is exactly what it sounds like.
The rate that you’ll pay for this insurance is guaranteed to remain level until your age 100.
While the rate you pay is guaranteed to remain level until age 100, the amount of life insurance is only guaranteed to remain level for the first 10 policy years. While the amount of insurance can continue to remain level in policy years 11 on based on an enhancement that 5 Star Life expects to pay, it is not guaranteed.
What does that really mean?
5 Star Life doesn’t ever expect to have to decrease your insurance amount, but assume that if they experience high claims or have other financial set backs that they could reduce your amount of your insurance after policy year 10.
If they were to reduce the amount of life insurance, they know that any healthy people who have had the policy for more than 10 years may cancel their coverage. When policyholders cancel their insurance, this hurts the overall financial stability of the company. So it is really not in 5 Star Life’s best interest to ever reduce the amount of insurance.
Bottom Line Regarding 5 Star Life
5 Star Life is an A- (Excellent) AM Best rated company with great rates for type 1 or type 2 diabetics, the overweight or people with cardiac issues other than coronary artery disease.
If you have any of the above issues and need life insurance, it could make sense to apply for a 5 Star Life policy prior to applying to any other insurance company.
The reason is that as soon as you are declined by any other company, 5 Star Life is no longer an option. After you buy the 5 Star policy and it’s placed in force, you could then always try for a better policy.
