    Found Life Insurance Finally - but at a price!

    So I've been looking for life insurance for years, was denied a couple times and couldn't find anything. I finally found a broker who cared enough to look beyond the standard companies and find me a policy. $190.00/month! which pisses me off as my broker said a quote for a person my age with obesity, family history of heart disease etc. basically the highest they would insure would pay 68.00/month.

    But I need peace of mind for my kids if I were to die...

    I'm going to ask my workers compensation to pay the difference as they are responsible for costs related to my injury. Worth a shot anyhow.

    Good idea about workman's comp/ It is certainly worth a try.

    I only have what I had before I was hurt, which isn;t enough today. I can understand that I cannot get Long Term Care insurance with a disability, but like you said, they give policies to people who are far riskier than I am.

    Yowza, Emi! I assume that's term life insurance -- what's the coverage period and benefit value you're getting for that?

    I was lucky in that one of the benefits of my LTD policy is that they pay the premiums for the $100k life insurance policy I had from the same company for as long as I'm eligible for LTD.

    It is easier to find men who will volunteer to die, than to find those who are willing to endure pain with patience.
