Why John Hancock Final Expense Insurance Might not be the Best Option at Age 69

john hancock final expense insurance 69

But is working with a company like John Hancock for Final Expense Insurance the best route to take at 69? You’ve noticed all of the commercials on TV for John Hancock and others major companies advertising Funeral Insurance policies.

With 70 right around the corner, who may wonder how time has flown by so fast. Where did all of that time go? Most likely it went to schooling, work, career changes, big moves, fun times, difficult times, possibly some health challenges along the way… but most importantly the time spent with cherished family and loved ones. You should be proud of yourself and your life. You may be starting to worried about what happens when your life ends. Maybe you have had it on your mind for a while. You don’t want your family burdened when it happens.

69 is an amazing age. Did you know that in 1979, Mother Theresa received the Nobel Peace Prize at age 69 for her work with “Missionaries of Charity,” a world-wide organization that helped the sick, the poor, the dying, and disaster victims through a network of religious houses, schools, hospices, and charity centers in more than 120 countries.

Regardless of one’s religious beliefs. I think most can agree that Mother Theresa’s life’s work was beyond inspiring. Her charitable work to the poorest and sickest people around the world earned her well-deserved global admiration and love. Mother Theresa lived many years after earning the noble peace prize. In fact, she lived until she was age 87.

She Lived a Beautiful Life. So Have You.

People are living longer than they did in past generations. So lots of folks don’t even start thinking about getting burial insurance until they are 69. But the truth of the matter is that it’s better to be prepared. Nobody wants to leave their loved ones with crazy burial costs when they are gone. You may have seen advertisements on TV for John Hancock’s Final Expense Life Insurance for those age 60-80. Now you might be thinking, at 69, I’m just about in the middle of that age range.
