Benefits of Assurance
- Competitive premium rates
- No blood work or medical exam required to apply – only a few simple health questions

- Premium rates will not increase
- Once issued, coverage cannot be altered due to health conditions
According to the National Funeral Directors Association, the average cost of a funeral is $8,7551. This average does not include the cemetery plot, headstone, flowers or other final expenses such as paramedic expenses, ambulance costs, Medicare deductibles and unpaid debts. If you consider these items, your own longevity, and inflation, this cost could be significantly higher. Government provisions are generally not sufficient to cover these costs. Social Security provides a one-time payment of only $2552 and veteran’s benefits pay only $3003.
Premiums and Benefits Are Guaranteed
Oxford Life’s funeral insurance is a level premium whole life insurance policy designed specifically to cover final expenses. Your premiums are guaranteed to never increase over the life of your policy and the death benefit amount is guaranteed not to change4. Your cash value will accumulate as you pay your premiums, and can be accessed in times of need through a policy loan5. Once issued, your policy cannot be canceled as long as premiums are paid.
An additional advantage of final expense life insurance is that your beneficiary will receive the policy proceeds without a tax penalty.
Fast and Simple Application Process
Our life insurance application process does not require a medical exam, blood work, or medical records. You only need to complete a short application and a quick health assessment. With Oxford life insurance you will know immediately whether or not your application was approved. Applications in good order will be processed quickly and issued within 48 hours.
Terminal Illness Rider
The Terminal Illness Benefit is an accelerated death benefit available to those diagnosed as terminally ill (defined as having a life expectancy of less than 12 months). The terminal illness benefit can be up to 100% of your death benefit and is available for no extra cost.
Common Carrier Rider
This Accidental Death benefit may be paid to the beneficiary in the event of the Insured’s accidental death while riding as a fare-paying passenger on a Common Carrier Conveyance. This benefit is equal to the amount of the death benefit under the policy. There is no extra cost for this benefit.
Oxford Life Assurance is available to both male and female applicants, issue ages 50 to 85, in benefit amounts of $5,000 to $30,000. Premiums rates are segmented by gender, age, and nicotine usage.
Convenient Premium Payment Options
A variety of premium modes are available, including annual, semi-annual, quarterly, and monthly EFT. For added convenience, Social Security payment dates may be used as premium draft dates.
For example, if you receive your Social Security payment on the second Wednesday of the month, you may set up your premium draft dates to be on that day each month.
