Accidental Death Insurance
When you might consider this type of policy
Accidental Death Insurance is pretty straightforward and simple to understand: If you die by an accident you will receive a predetermined death benefit. My carrier, who I will be using as a basis for this article, states that a benefit will be paid if you die by your injuries within 90 days of the accident.

Accidental Death Insurance vs Life Insurance
Life insurance covers all general Causes of Death. Accidental Death Insurance covers death by accidents only.
When you might want to consider an Accidental Death Policy?
Consider an Accidental Death Insurance if you cannot qualify for Standard Life Insurance due to a health impairment or personal situation that does not allow you to obtain a life insurance plan.
Perhaps you must pass a certain healthy milestone before you can qualify for standard life insurance? Accidental Death Insurance is a great strategy to use until you can qualify for a standard life insurance plan.
If you have had legal problems and cannot qualify for life insurance , for a certain time frame, then an Accidental Death Policy would also be a good consideration until such time when you can qualify for a standard life insurance plan.
This is where you need to speak with me, an experienced agent , who can review your situation and offer a plan to help achieve your goals.
