If you have a medical condition that will prohibit your qualification (such as Diabetes), you may qualify for a “Graded” or “alternation” assistance. With this kind of policy, the death assistance is phased in over time (usually two years).

There are some serious medical conditions that would prohibit you from obtaining already the alternation assistance. In this case, you can get a “guaranteed issue” policy. These policies will be issued to anyone who applies (as long as you are within the age limits). These policies will be issued to anyone, as long as they are not diagnosed as “terminal”. The guarantee issue policies work like the “graded” policies, phasing in the death assistance over time.

An “independent” insurance agent can be a big help in finding the right company and policy for you.
