Can I Buy a Term Life Policy Longer Than 20 Years?
For those of you in their 50’s, many of you will be able to buy a 30 year term up to and including age 58. But if you just turned 59, you will be out of luck as you will have reached the cut off point where no life insurance company will sell you a term policy for more than a 20 year term.
And remember, the older you get the more expensive it will cost to buy a term life insurance policy. If you are just about to turn a year older than you shouldn’t delay and buy what you need before you hit that birthday threshold.
