Why Do Many Insurance Companies Seem Unwilling to Provide Insurance to People with Dementia or Alzheimer’s?

Dementia refers to the gradual loss of brain function and behavioral abilities of a person. As such, it will significantly impede the person’s ability to perform activities of daily living. Not a part of the natural aging process, dementia can become more common as people age.

Dementia and related disorders can lead to premature death. Thus, it comes as no surprise that many insurers remain wary of insuring people afflicted by these conditions. For this reason, many insurers will not offer the full amount of the death benefit during the first two years of your new burial insurance policy.

Even though the options might seem limited, you will still be able to obtain burial insurance with these disorders. However, your new policy will inevitably feature a waiting period of two years and a significantly higher premium.  To our knowledge, no life insurance or burial insurance provider will offer a policy that pays out an immediate death benefit.  While this can be frustrating, you simply need to understand the insurance companies view people with dementia or Alzheimers as an extremely high risk. If a company views you as a higher risk to their balance sheets, they will only offer quaranteed acceptance policies.

This means anyone can be approved.  But if death occurs in the first two years of the policy, only the premiums paid In plus 10% interest is paid to the beneficiary.  After the first two policy years, at any point thereafter at the time of death, the full amount is paid to the beneficiary.

For many seniors in their eighties,a guaranteed issue life insurance policy may be their only option.  If a person can qualify for a policy that pays an immediate death benefit, our staff will gladly relay this information to you.
