Reasons You Might Need $250,000 – $1,000,000 of Coverage

If you’re just starting to research life insurance, one of the first steps to take is to determine how much life insurance you need. This varies from individual to individual, but you want to make sure you buy enough.

One approach is to look at your current needs and then ask yourself what your financial needs might be down the road 10 – 25 years later.  Some of the areas where you will want to consider when buying life insurance include:

• Income replacement
• Cover your final expenses such as funeral and burial cost
• Cover your mortgage
• Pay for all your current and future financial debts
• Business insurance such as a buy/sell agreement, key man insurance or to cover a sole proprietorship
• Pay for your children’s college education
• Estate taxes for high income earners
• Give to charity
• Provide a financial legacy

To help you calculate your need, you might want to use our life insurance calculators.

We have 2 of them which includes one for determining simple income replacement, and another one for considering other variables.

10 Year Term $250,000 – $1,000,000 Quotes

A 10 year term life insurance policy covers for an initial 10 years. To renew this term period again premiums will increase annually afterwards. A 10 year term policy is generally the lowest priced that any insurer provides. This type of policy is ideal for shorter term needs such as to cover a business loan or other short term debts.

Medical Requirements for Getting Life Insurance

Every standard life insurance policy means you will have to undergo some form of medical exam to be approved for a policy.

There are many of you folk out there who are under the erroneous impression that every life insurance company is pretty much the same when it comes to medical exams.

That’s a big fallacy because they are very different!

Some companies are a lot more lenient and liberal in their underwriting requirements than other companies. This is an important point to remember because life insurance is a long term investment.

You want to get the best value for the hard earned money you spend on a policy, and you want an insurer who is going to give you the best policy at the lowest premiums.

Life insurers differ in a variety of areas such as height and weight ratios and for different ages. Your current age or a pending birthday could mean a significant difference in what you pay.

There is also a big difference in how insurers treat medical conditions, lifestyle habits and even in how they treat high risk occupations. While some insurers will decline you automatically, other companies will provide coverage under different conditions.

Another area where life insurers can be very different is in the medical exam requirements. How they determine what they want for the overall medical testing procedures will depend on both your current age AND on the amount of life insurance coverage on your application.

Just to give you an example of what one insurer is looking at, one such company requires that for a 30 or a 60 year old applying for $ 500,000 or up to $1,000,000 in coverage, you will have to undergo an:

• Abbreviated paramed,
• Blood profile,
• Provide a home office urine specimen,
• Review of your MVA report and
• A Nonmedical.

But if you just turned age 61, the insurer will require the following:

• An attending physician statement,
• Blood profile,
• Home office urine specimen,
• A MVA report and
• Resting EKG.

Other insurers will have different requirements. You now begin to get the idea that they are not all the same.

    I will be needing some life insurance for myself that will cover my 1 yr old. I’m just curious as to how this whole thing works and what is going to be best for me and my family

    • Randy McClintick March 7, 2017, 3:58 pm

      Mr. Moor,

      Thank you for your question and visting JRC’s life insurance website, and congratulations on your growing family!

      Most people in your situation will purchase a 20-year term life insurance policy. This covers your most vulnerable years raising a child.

      These days most parents plan to help their kids out through college age, so we’d compare a 30 year term policy. If you’re young it may not cost a whole lot more. You’re not obligate to keep it 30 years, it just means your life insurance company couldn’t change your rate for that period of time. This could become important if you developed any health issues down the road…they can’t reassess your health.

      If you’re a bit older, you could “stagger” two term policies of different term length. For instance, after chatting we determined you’d want $1,000,000 now but in 20 years $500,000 would be sufficient to cover your child’s college years and paying off your home, you could acquire a 20 year term for $500,000 death benefit, and a 30 year term with a $500,000 death benefit. Both policies are active during the first 20 years, providing a death benefit totaling $1,000,000. If you’re living in 20 years, you still have 10 years on that 30 year term, with the remaining $500,000 death benefit.

      This strategy will save your money over time, and provide additional flexibility….it’s easy to cancel one policy if things change and you determine you don’t need or can’t afford both.

      We’ll be glad to help you compare strategies, answer your questions, and email you best pricing policies for your age, health and state of residence.

      You can reach JRC at (855) 247-9555.

      Thanks again for contacting…you’re already showing you’ll be a great dad!

    • Randy McClintick January 18, 2018, 4:56 pm


      Thank you for your question and visiting JRC’s life insurance website.

      Foreign nationals can be eligible for life insurance with certain types of visas. Your time in the US has bearing, and whether you’re employed or a student. Call JRC at (855) 247-9555 and we’ll determine the type and amount of life insurance you could apply for.

  • Jstones January 18, 2018, 8:19 pm

    $500,000 whole life

    • Randy McClintick January 22, 2018, 9:39 am

      Thank you for your inquiry and visiting JRC’s life insurance website.

      JRC is a fully licensed agency representing over 40 A-rated life insurance companies. Call us at 855-247-9555 when you have 10-15 minutes to chat and we’ll provide a complimentary pre-screening to determine which carriers could provide your best rates for your coverage. They have varying height/weight charts, as well as underwriting for medications, and family health history. Some, for instance, overlook family cancer history. Even a planned vacation to Mexico could affect rates, so we want to make sure you’re matched correctly for coverage you could be paying for many years.

      Are you sure you’re required to have whole life coverage? Term insurance or “Guaranteed Universal Life”, which is like term coverage but to a specific age, is generally used for buy/sell agreements and would be considerably less costly. We’ll be glad to email comparisons for yourself and business partner(s).

      JRC is located in San Diego, CA with business hours from 8am-5pm Pacific

      (855) 247-9555

      We look forward to assisting you

  • Donna December 5, 2019, 3:43 pm

    I’d like to pose my question as a hypothetical…….If I’m ready to purchase a term life policy ( $250,000.00 ) immediately (24-48 hrs), is my expectation realistic? If so, what’s the monthly premium cost? (approx. range…….lowest price…….highest price) Thank you.

    • Randy McClintick December 11, 2019, 12:09 pm


      Thank you for your question and visiting JRC’s life insurance site.

      You could be covered for accidental death almost immediately. There is medical underwriting, even with a “no exam” application. The insurer will generally check the pharmacy prescription database, dmv records, etc. If you’re young and healthy, we’ve seen a turnaround in a few days at the fastest. We’d need to speak to you to quote accurately, as policy costs vary upon these factors as well as which carriers do business in your state of residence. We should be able to provide accurate, no obligation quotes in 10-15 minutes.

      If all you need is an accidental death policy, the cost is around $12 per month per $100,000 in coverage, and can be cancelled whenever you choose.

      JRC’s toll-free number is (855) 247-9555.
