Children's group term life insurance is intended mostly to protect insurability. Once insured, those covered by this plan can remain insured for life. This coverage can also provide funds for a funeral. The median cost of a funeral is about $7,045.*
When a parent is insured, each child age 15 days to 18 years can also become insured for $10,000, all of them for just one premium of $3 a month...that's just 10 cents a day.
The parent who applies for children's insurance is the beneficiary.
As long as the parent is also insured, children can remain covered until age 23. Then, they can request an increase in their coverage to $25,000 or more, and if they remain insured on their own as adults, they may do so whether or not a parent remains covered.
