A physical examination is not routinely required, but when needed, it is conducted by a medical professional who visits at your convenience—usually at your home or business—at no cost to you. If more medical information is needed, it is requested from you or your medical providers.
Coverage (and any increase) usually begins on the day your application is approved if you are able to perform normal activities.*** If you receive approval, you may request a different effective date, such as when existing insurance ends or a new financial obligation begins. This term insurance continues to age 95 unless premiums are not paid on time or the policy ends. When your term insurance concludes at age 95, regardless of your health, you may convert your coverage to any individual life insurance policy that does not provide term insurance or pay dividends.
