If you’re wondering how long your life insurance will last, you’ll need to ask your insurance agent what the limit is, because life insurance companies often have no idea.
According to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), the federal agency that oversees life insurance policies, life insurance policy limits are based on your age, sex, race, marital status, and whether or not you have children.
While the law requires insurance companies to calculate limits for each demographic, some policies don’t have limits for that group, meaning they won’t have any protection if you die.
The limit depends on the age and sex of your children.
The law also says that life insurance providers have to pay for any additional coverage you may need, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to keep it for the next 20 years.
To help protect yourself, make sure your policies cover you for at least 20 years if you’re 65 and up, and at least 35 years if your children are younger than age 65.
But there are exceptions.
If you are 65 and older and have children under age 18, you may be able use your life policy to pay the cost of coverage if you pay your policy before you die, or if you receive a death benefit payment.
For example, if your life coverage expires after 20 years, you can still get your policy renewed.
However, your policy may have to be renewed if you have any of the following conditions: your coverage lapses, you die and your children grow up before you, or you are born and leave the country before you.
If your policy lapses during your life, it may be impossible to renew the policy if you qualify for any of these exceptions.
This includes your children who are born overseas, if you are the sole survivor of a pre-existing condition, if the life policy was issued before your death, or your spouse’s children.
If the life insurance plan does not cover you or your children for 20 years after your death (or your spouse dies), your life policies will no longer be considered life insurance.
You may still be able claim life insurance on your death if you were eligible for the full amount, but only for your spouse or children.
You can claim the full life insurance value if your spouse was the beneficiary under the policy.

For your protection, you must have a valid policy to claim life coverage.
If it is not a valid claim, you will have to contact your insurance company and ask for more information about how your life can be paid for.
Ask your insurer about the lifetime limit you may have for a particular policy.
If a policy’s limit is set for life insurance coverage for only one person, you should ask your insurer if you can claim that person’s coverage in the same policy, and you will not have to renew it.
If that policy covers more than one person and your coverage expires during that person or family member’s life, you might have to request a refund.
