    Liberty Bankers Life Insurance Policy Offerings

    With funeral and burial costs skyrocketing, total final expenses can now easily exceed $10K-$15K.

    Liberty Bankers offers three final expense life insurance policies:

    • Two level death benefit whole life insurance policies
    • A modified whole life policy, which has a two-year waiting period

    SIMPL Preferred and Standard

    The SIMPL Final Expense Plan has three different options to choose from, depending on your health status at the time of application.

    • Both SIMPL Preferred and Standard offer a death benefit from the date of issue (in other words, immediate coverage)
    • With SIMPL Preferred and Standard, you can also get an accelerated death benefit to help pay for expenses if you have a terminal or chronic illness. If you qualify, you can receive up to 80% of your death benefit while you are living! If you don’t use this feature, the full death benefit will go to your beneficiaries.

    No results found.

    Modified Whole Life Insurance

    For individuals who cannot qualify for a SIMPL policy, our Modified Whole Life Policy (MWL) may be an alternative.

    Modified Whole Life is a type of life insurance which is issued to those applicants with more complex medical issues. This policy offers a modified death benefit, which means that the payout will be different than with other life insurance policies.

    Specifically, the policy includes what is called a “waiting period”. This is the amount of time after policy issuance that you have to wait before the policy’s death benefit will pay out.

    During the first three years, if death occurs as a result of an accident, the policy’s face amount is paid in full. Note that Liberty Bankers is one of the only companies in the life insurance industry to have a three-year waiting period.

    The non-accidental death benefit equals a refund of all premiums paid to date, plus 10% compounded growth from year four through year ten. During each subsequent year, the death benefit rises by 10%, reaching 110% in the years 6+.

    Liberty Bankers Policy Riders

    Any SIMPL policy (Preferred or Standard) includes the option to add the following riders to your policy:

    Children’s Benefit Rider

    Available for on SIMPL Preferred and Standard. One Unit equals $5,000 term coverage to age 25 per child, maximum 4 units. (Additional premium payments are required.)

    You can convert your life insurance policy to a whole life policy at any time, without providing evidence of insurability. If you do it when you are 25 or earlier, you can get up to 5 times the original amount.

    Grandchild Rider

    Available for an additional premium on SIMPL Preferred and Standard.

    $7,500 “term to Age 25” product. Then convertible, without evidence of insurability, for up to 5 times the original amount if converted at age 25 (or marriage, if earlier).

    If the primary insured dies prematurely, the covered grandchild may convert the coverage to twice the face amount.

    Accidental Death and Dismemberment

    Provides an additional death benefit if the insured’s death results from an accident. In addition, a benefit may be provided if you lose the use of arms, legs, or eyes as a result of an accident.
