Ideally, your should start your funeral life insurance earlier in your life because of your age and in most cases better health (we’ve had a couple of clients that actually improved their health with healthier habits).
If you haven’t started earlier, then your best choice is to consult a Life Insurance Agency. Most Life Insurance Agencies have access to many carriers and can help you pick the best one for your health condition. We are appointed by more than 20 carriers, which are licensed in different states. Each company have their own underwriting and you may get a lower “healthy rate” and first-day-coverage with one and a higher rate with 2 to 3 years wait with another.
Your agent, which has to be licensed in each state, can ask you a few health questions, go over your prescriptions, and present the best companies for you in your state.

How your health today affects your rates.
Along with your age, your health today affects how low your payments can be. Try to apply before any of the following:
- A new or worsening health condition
- Your doctor increases a dosage or prescribes a new medication
- Your doctor requests a medical exam
- Your doctor recommends a surgery
- You feel any of the symptoms of COVID-19
