Costco Term Life Insurance Policy

Costco members between the ages of 18 and 70 can apply for term life insurance for themselves or their spouses for up to $500,000. The policies are priced in $25,000 increments and the minimum face amount is $50,000.

Additional policy features.

1. The insured can get up to $100,000 if they are diagnosed with a terminal illness. (The policy must be in effect for at least two years for this feature to kick-in)

2. Discounts are given to non-smokers, but preferred rates are not available.

3. There is a conversion option under the policy. The insured can convert to a permanent plan without a medical any time before the insured’s 76th birthday.
