  • Many cancer patients can, indeed, find affordable life insurance coverage. How? The key is finding a knowledgeable broker with experience in placing tough cases.
  • Yes, you can get a "graded life" policy for up to $50,000. You maybe able to get more than one such policy. This means that the company only returns premium if the insured dies before 2 years, but if they live beyond that, the full insurance benefit is paid. It does not have to be an accidental death.

Traditional life insurance is not available to people with a terminal illness. You may be able to obtain a Graded Death Benefit life insurance policy. With a Graded death benefit policy, if you die within the first few years, the life insurance company will only refund your premiums paid plus interest. With some policies, a specified percentage of the death benefit becomes available each year.

Can you buy life insurance for terminally ill people?

No, you can't buy life insurance for terminally ill people. Life insurance policies will only pay a death benefit if the insured person does not die of a condition that already existed (known as a pre-existing condition) at the time the policy is first purchased. So, while it would be possible to lie to the insurance company and claim that the person buying the insurance is perfectly healthy, and not all insurance policies require a medical examination, it is still true that when the person dies, the insurance company will investigate and will discover that the death resulted from a pre-existing condition, and therefore the insurance is not valid. (They will return the premiums paid, however.)
