Globe Life Insurance Overview

Globe Life is an insurance company that offers different Life insurance products like Term and Whole life to a range of ages from seniors to young people as well. 

They have been around since the 1950’s, but I couldn’t find any accurate financial ratings for them, so I don’t want to mislead anyone by giving the wrong rating. I say this because they are a legitimate insurance company, I simply couldn’t find where they have financial ratings. 

They are very popular with supplying Group insurance along with personal life insurance. Meaning they have companies under their “umbrella” that offer group health and group term insurance. 

Globe Life Offers: 

  • Whole Life Insurance
  • Term Insurance
  • Final Expense (form of whole life)
  • Accidental Death

This is a pretty common lineup in today’s world regarding insurance. One thing you should know is that final expense, or burial insurance, are just ways of saying a type of whole life insurance policy. Burial insurance is lower coverage amounts designed for covering funerals and cremations. 

There really is no difference between final expense, burial insurance, and whole life. It is simply the way the policy is structured. 

What seems to be a common theme with policyholders of Globe Life Insurance, is they usually have a term policy that they don’t completely understand. 

This company advertises some of their features somewhat as being “exclusive” to them, but honestly other carriers have the same perks. 

For example, with Globe Life, you have 30 days to decide whether you like the policy or not. If you decide you don’t, you can cancel the policy and get your first payment back no question asked. 

While this is a great perk, this is the same across the board pretty much. All of my carriers that I represent offer this as well. This is a pretty popular tactic among inferior insurance companies, or companies that simply don’t have a great insurance product. 

Globe Life Term Policies

The term policies that Globe Life offers are pretty infamous, and may even be the reason why you are reading this. 

Globe Life’s term policies sound great at first, but when you really start to look at them you will see a different reality. The truth is that the term policy lasts only a few years before the rates increase. This trend will continue until you simply can’t afford the coverage. 

In fact, this isn’t just a Globe Life policy, there are many term policies that are structured in this manner. 

Just this week I met a lovely lady who had term coverage for her and her husband. She had reached an older age, and was expecting to pay the low premium that she had been paying all these years. That simply is not how it works. 

Her new rates were over $1,000 per month to cover her and her husband. I don’t know about you, but I would be furious if my new rate was that high, and all the money I had paid on the policy all of those years was just gone. 

This is the same case for many Globe Life policyholders. The term will renew every 10 years, 5 years, 3 years, or even every year after a certain age. 

What is a Good Term Policy?

A good term policy is one that is set for a longer amount of time. Here at, I actually offer the best Term insurance for my clients as well, but do not typically recommend it for my senior clients. 

Depending on the age of the client, and their needs, I offer 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 year term policies. These policies range from $50,000 up to $500,000 with no medical exam. 

If the client needs more I can certainly get it for them, but it may require a medical exam. This means a simple blood draw and urine sample potentially. 

It is important to remember that even at the end of my term policies that I offer, the money put into them is simply gone to the insurance company. The good thing about getting a term policy with me and my carriers, is that there is a guaranteed insurability and convertibility. 

Guaranteed Convertibility

This means that the client is guaranteed they will qualify for a whole life policy at the end of their term. 

For example, if someone that is 30 gets a 30 year term policy, they will be 60 when it expires. A lot can happen in those 30 years, but no matter what health issues come, they will get the best rate for a whole life final expense policy. No questions asked! 

They will not even have to medically qualify, as it is already promised to them. 

What better handshake can you get than that? 

Now to be completely clear, if you have 500,000 of term coverage, it will not convert to 500,000 of whole life coverage. It will be a lower death benefit to suit a final expense or burial insurance policy. Just to be completely transparent!

Globe Life Final Expense Policy

The final expense, burial insurance, or whatever you would like to call it, policy offered by Globe Life is also fairly misleading. 

They are one of the companies like Colonial Penn that will advertise very low prices, but don’t show the full picture. 

Many times clients will be thinking they will be getting a large policy for a few dollars a month, or even $1 as was advertised in years past. Unfortunately, this is simply not how it works. 

With all life insurance, the policies are priced based on the insureds health and age. The older you are, the higher your premium. The worse health you are in, the higher your premium. You see where I’m going here. 

To think that a 65 year old male or female for that matter can get a large final expense policy for $5 or $10 a month is very misleading. It is simply not true. 

What happens many times is these clients get policies through Globe Life, are put in a waiting period, and never get paid. The beneficiary is left hanging when they are given a check of only what has been paid on the policy. 

My clients never have to worry about what their beneficiary will be paid, they know 100% what they will be receiving. 

More importantly, they will not go through a waiting period if they are in good enough health to avoid it!

Globe Life Pros and Cons

Above all, I believe it is important to be completely transparent. While I do believe 100% that the products offered at Ark Burial Insurance are incredibly better than Globe Life, I do want to list the pros and cons of Globe Life products. For the sake of being Transparent. 


  • No Medical exam required
  • Can potentially get coverage immediately with no waiting period. 
  • Globe Life is heavily advertised and even owns a Stadium in Texas. 
  • Usually have decent supplement plans that you can buy. 


  • Globe Life Term policies will increase every 5 years as you get older. 
  • Very strict underwriting causes people to have waiting periods most of the time.
  • Reviews are not very good at all. 
  • Overpriced for the value of coverage, especially when compared to the top carriers in the industry. 

Is Globe Life a Scam?

Globe Life is most certainly not a scam, as they are a legitimate company that offers life, accident, and some health insurance products. 

Keeping in mind that there are hundreds of companies that offer these products, Globe Life does not land anywhere near the top of that list as far as quality goes. In fact, they would be near the bottom close to Colonial Penn

The reason is due to the fact that most of the policies will expire, as they are more of a “group term” type policy. So once the client reaches a certain age, the policy will 10X in price ultimately leaving the client in a very bad position. 

Due to those issues, they fall at the bottom of my list and I refuse to use them to insure my clients. Instead, my clients rest easy at night knowing they are covered no matter what comes their way, or how old they get. They will never have their coverage expire or go away, unless they simply don’t pay the premium. 

Above all, clients should be able to live worry free when they have life insurance. They should not have to be concerned with when the rate will increase on them, or if they will be able to qualify for the renewal of the policy. 

Burial insurance should be there to cover the burial, not go away or jump tremendously in price.

It is that simple! You don’t have to get in contact with me just for a quote, although I would advise it to be sure you don’t over insure or under insure yourself. 

Above all, you should be 100% in the know of what exactly you are getting. These prices below are whole life burial insurance policies, that will never expire, or increase in price once it is locked in. 

You don’t have to worry about 10 or 15 years from now, the rate going through the roof because the “Term” expired. That is simply not how my policies work. 

These rates are with the best carriers in the country, and are what my clients will expect to pay for $10,000 in coverage if they are healthy.

Globe Life Insurance Reviews

If you are a person who likes to look around before they purchase something, I commend you for it! 

Unfortunately, if you have checked out the Globe Life insurance reviews, you probably are scared to even purchase a policy from anyone. 

There are many that are horror stories in my industry. Not to say that they are all accurate or told to the full extent. We all know that most of the time when people will leave reviews, they could very well just be the bad ones and the good ones stay silent. 

However, with insurance companies it is always safer to go with the companies that are showing strong financial standings, and great customer reviews. 

Above all, it is so important to be with a company and agent that always delivers, and has a perfect 100% rate of doing so. You don’t want to have your life insured through a company that has a history of not paying their beneficiaries.
