Globe Life Insurance Rates Chart By Age [2022 Update]

Table of Contents

We’ll cut to the chase.

Globe Life has a top-notch marketing team and a user-friendly application process, but their policies aren’t everything they seem to be.

  • For one, your rates increase every five years, often by 50%-100% each time
  • Second, their policies are not whole life insurance

Let’s see what that looks like in more detail.

Globe Life Insurance Rates Chart (By Age & Gender)

Here are Globe Life’s rates, straight from the horses mouth.  There’s a lot to unpack here, especially the information found in the footnote below the second table.

Globe Life Insurance Rates Charts (Men and Women)

Globe Life’s rate chart reveals three crucial things about their policies, which we’ll go through in the upcoming sections:

  1. “Premiums increase as you enter each new five-year age period”
  2. Ages 81-89 not available for issue; rates are for renewals only”
  3. “Ages 60-89: $75,000 and $100,000 not available for issue: renewals only”

Rate Chart Revelation #1: Your Globe Life Insurance Rate Increases Every Five Years

Take a look at the images below.  These are all screenshots from Globe Life’s home page for its life insurance product (

There’s hardly a mention of the actual rates they charge, and the one mention that is there is highly misleading.

From your initial rate check through the completion of your application, Globe Life does not tell you once that your rates will increase every five years.

And, as we’ll see below, these increases are not small either.

Example: 65-Year-Old Male

Per Globe’s life insurance rate chart for males, we can see that a 65-year-old would see a rate of $30.84 for $10,000 of coverage.

Globe Life Insurance Rates for a 65-year-old male

On the surface, that looks like a much better deal than the $56 per month rate he would see from a traditional insurance company like Aetna or Mutual of Omaha.

But here’s the reality:

  • After just 5 years, his Globe rate will be higher than his (flat) Aetna rate
  • After 10 years, his Globe rate will be $79/month
  • After 20 years… $161/month

In total, he will pay $8,966 more with Globe Life (vs. Aetna) by the time his Globe Life policy expires.

People typically don’t learn of this until years later, when their rate has become unaffordable.

They are in a no-win situation, at that point.  Their other options for coverage are limited (at best) at this point, given their health and older age.  But then again, they can’t pay for something with money they don’t have.

So they have no choice but to cancel their policy.  And their loved ones may have no choice but to put thousands on a credit card.

Meanwhile, Globe walks away with years of their hard-earned dollars and doesn’t even have to pay them a cent of cash value in return.

Rate Chart Revelation #2: Your Policy Expires

The second important factor that Globe Life’s life insurance rate chart reveals is that their policies expire.

If you buy a $10,000 policy at age 65, you will pay $25,715 to Globe by your 90th birthday.  If you pass a day later, you get nothing.

  • $5,000

Globe Life Insurance Rate Chart FAQs

  • Does Globe Life insurance go up every year?
