No Waiting Period
You are covered for the full benefit amount from the first day coverage takes effect. Once approved, you’ll have greater peace of mind knowing coverage lasts your lifetime.

Rates Won’t Increase Due to Age
or Health

Your monthly premium is based on your age when you apply, and will not increase simply because you grow older or your health changes.

Benefits Won’t Decrease
With this coverage, the benefit level will not fluctuate for as long as you're insured. As long as you pay premiums when they’re due and your Enrollment form contains no misrepresentations about your medical history.

30-Day Guarantee
You'll receive a Certificate of Insurance when coverage is approved. If you decide this coverage isn't for you, for any reason, you can return it within 30 days and receive a refund.

An Exclusion
If death results from suicide in the first two years, benefits will not be paid.3 (In Washington, specific state rules apply.)

Paid-Up Feature
Your monthly premium payments will end at age 95, but coverage will continue in full for the rest of your life.

Cash Value
Your coverage builds cash value over time that you can borrow against.

Accelerated Benefit
If you're diagnosed with a terminal illness and given a life expectancy of 12 months or less (24 months in Illinois and Texas), you can access half your benefit amount.4 (Not available in Massachusetts and Washington)

Waiver of Premium for Certain Qualified Nursing Home Confinements
Premiums will be waived after 180 consecutive days of a nursing home stay ordered by your doctor.5 Your coverage will continue without interruption, but no premium payment will be required for as long as you're confined.

Simple Application
It doesn't take a lot of time or paperwork to apply for AARP Permanent Life. AARP members can apply by mail or online (in most states). There's absolutely no cost or obligation when you request information.

1Washington Residents: The maximum issue age is 67 years old.

2Oregon Residents: You must be an AARP member to request a free Information Kit and Enrollment Form by mail.

3Missouri and North Dakota Residents: The suicide exclusion applies only for one year.

4Please note that receipt of “living benefit” (accelerated death benefit) insurance proceeds may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs. Proceeds may be taxable. You may wish to consult your financial advisor and/or attorney to determine how this may affect your personal situation. Premiums will be lower when the benefit amount decreases by one-half.

Texas Residents: Death Benefits, Cash Values and Loan Values will be reduced if a ‘living benefit’ (accelerated death benefit) is paid. The acceleration of life insurance benefits offered under this certificate is intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment under the IRC of 1986. If these benefits qualify for favorable tax treatment, the benefits are excludable from your income and not subject to taxation. You are advised to consult with a qualified tax advisor about circumstances under which you could receive acceleration of life insurance benefits excludable from income under federal law. Receipt of acceleration of life insurance benefits could also affect you and your family’s eligibility for public assistance programs (Medicaid, AFDC, SSI, or drug assistance). You are advised to consult with a qualified tax advisor and with social service agencies to determine how receipt of these benefits will affect your eligibility for public assistance. Premiums will be lower when the benefit amount decreases by one-half.

Florida Residents: In order to protect against the unintended cancellation of your life insurance coverage, you have the opportunity to have copies of lapse notices sent to another individual whom you designate. A designation form for this will be included with your Certificate of Insurance.

5The nursing home must be primarily engaged in providing skilled nursing care under the supervision of a licensed physician. Nursing home does not include a home or facility used primarily for rest; for the care of drug addicts or alcoholics; for the care and treatment of mental diseases or disorders; or for custodial care.

Pursuant to Texas Administrative Code 28 TAC § 21.107(d) this provides notification that the association’s directors are not elected by its members and the directors may approve rate increases.
