Estate Planning

Guaranteed Universal Life:  individual coverage, refer to ages at right


Survivorship Life Insurance for Couples

Survivorship life insurance, or second-to-die or survivor insurance, insures a couple’s estate planning needs.  These policies which cover two people are much less expensive than individual coverage, and with many carriers only one in the couple needs to be insurable.   That’s one reason to look for joint coverage in estate planning, if one of the couple is in poor health.  Also at whatever health it is much less expensive than getting two separate policies.

All carriers quoted have lifetime no lapse guarantees, age 120 or longer, which is what you want: pay on time and coverage is guaranteed to stay in force for life.

NA $11,876 NA $14,390 Principal
$12,050 $12,560 $14,620 $15,030 United of Omaha


Analysis:  These results are indicative of other ages.  Prudential has very competitive rates at above average health classifications and Nationwide at the standard rate.  Prudential and United of Omaha are age last birthday rates, all others age nearest rates.

This is a very, very small sample, but it is a starting point.  I can run comparison quotes on all the major competitive carriers factoring in age, health and carrier underwriting to find the best rates.
