It is certainly plausible to consider that a pandemic might cause an increase in what you will pay for a Term Life Insurance policy in 2021. After all—the cost of life insurance is intimately tied to the risk of mortality. And obviously—a pandemic can indeed negatively impact our risk of passing away too soon leaving our loved ones unprotected.
So what’s really happening?
Fortunately—at McEvoy Insurance—we have NOT seen evidence of any increase in the costs of term life insurance products through our numerous, top-rated carriers. Life insurance is as affordable now as it was in 2019 (pre-pandemic).
Past and on-going affordability of life insurance is crucial to point out to anyone hesitating to make a purchase due to overestimation of cost. A recent LIMRA study (2021 Insurance Barometer) indicates that over 50% of the country believes life insurance costs 3 times more than reality demonstrates. In fact—that same study reports that most Millennials are overestimating cost by a factor of 6!
