As a 65 year old senior, you may still be working full time and leading a healthy life full of possibilities. If you are in good health, you should still expect many productive years ahead of you, working and saving money for your loved ones, since people are living much longer lives these days.
Life insurance can safeguard your loved ones from money issues in the event of your death. When you reach age sixty five and over, unfortunately, you start thinking about your own mortality and the real possibility you may not be around much longer. This is the time to think about your immediate family and their financial well being.
My customers often ask me questions like: "Can you buy life insurance after 65 years of age?"; "Can I get life insurance over 65"; "Isn't sixty five and over too old to get life insurance?" - I tell them, NO, people nowadays can get a policy into their eighties. It all depends on your health and if you live a risky lifestyle - you smoke, drink too much, etc.
