United Home Life is one of the best final expense (burial insurance) companies on the market especially for basic burial insurance. Many applicants will qualify for an immediate death benefit policy with them when other companies may completely decline or only offer a 2-3 year graded or modified period.

Because of the this extra level offered they can offer more people with serious illnesses that other companies can’t. There is power in numbers, so more is better to spread the risk of claims.

 United Home Life Final Expense offers 5 Levels of Simplified Issue Life Insurance

Provider is the first and top level of Whole Life insurance that United Farm Family Life offers. It is offered for ages 0-80, from $10,000 up to $150,000 $100,000 or $50,000 a depending on the age of the applicant.  There are two categories of rates available: Standard or Preferred.  The preferred rates are not available for tobacco users, but they only look back 12 for tobacco use.  If a person has not used tobacco or nicotine replacement products for more than 12 months, they can qualify for the Preferred rates.

The Provider product is meant for people who are exceptionally healthy with no treatment for health problems in the last 10 years other than a minor cold or very minor temporary condition.  It’s still simplified underwriting, and goes down to $10,000 of coverage, and is one of the best priced (usually the best priced), simplified whole life insurance policies  for almost all age groups, ages and gender.

Final Expense Express Issue Premier is the next level, and what most applicants qualify for in the whole life category.  This product and the next two are what is marketed as Final Expense Insurance, although all that really means is a smaller amount of whole life insurance.  This is offered to ages 20-80.

The United Home Life Simplified issue Provider and Final Expense polices also offer coverage to applicants under the age of 50.  Over 50% of the companies don’t offer these polices to applicants under the age of 50, so it’s much less competitive and many times it’s very difficult to find a company that will accept them.

United Home Life is capturing younger, healthier lives with their  Premier and Provider policies that are not applying because the applicant in poor health, rather they want a small amount of coverage.  Younger healthier people who will typically pay into the policy for many years help to keep the claims ratios and reserves at better levels.
