Globe Life Insurance Rates Chart: 3 Surprising Insights

Globe Life sends frequent, eye-catching mailers.

Unfortunately, our praise for Globe Life doesn’t extend much beyond that.

Like Colonial Penn, Globe Life policies have major issues lurking beneath the surface.

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

Globe Life Insurance Rates Chart (By Age & Gender)

While reviewing the Globe Life Insurance Rates Chart, it’s interesting to note that options like AARP life insurance for seniors over 80 can offer valuable alternatives for those seeking affordable coverage later in life.

The two rate charts below show Globe Life’s monthly life insurance rates by age, coverage amount, and gender.

Ironically, however, the footnotes to these charts tell you far more about how much Globe Life’s policies will cost you. Specifically:

  1. Your rates increase every five years
  2. Your policy is NOT “whole life insurance” (instead, it expires)
  3. If you’re above age 60, your coverage options are far more limited than they appear

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

While evaluating Globe Life’s insurance rates, it’s beneficial to compare them with 30 year level term plans from other providers to understand the long-term cost implications for individuals at different ages.

Take a look at the images below (both are screenshots from Globe Life’s life insurance home page:

It’s hard to say these are anything OTHER than misleading, right?

There’s hardly a mention of the actual rates for Globe Life insurance, 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.

How Much Do Your Rates Increase With Globe Life?

The two tables below show how much Globe Life insurance prices CHANGE as you cross from one age bracket to another.
We can also see that the Globe Life insurance rates for adults depend on gender as well.

Table: Monthly Rate INCREASES For Men


Example: 65-Year-Old Male

Globe’s insurance payment rate chart for males shows that a 65-year-old would pay $30.84 for $10,000 of coverage.

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 of his Globe Life insurance cost:

  • After just 5 years, his Globe Life payment 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.

At that point, they are in a no-win situation. Given their health and older age, their other coverage options are limited (at best).  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.
