What You Need to Know About Life Insurance and the Coronavirus

- Posted on PrintDownload

Industry experts offer guidance about buying a life insurance policy in the current climate.


Foster City, CA – March 19, 2020 – Insure.com interviewed life insurance experts to find out how the coronavirus is affecting consumer demand for life insurance policies and what people need to know about getting a policy today.


People should be aware that life insurers may take into account your travel when deciding on a policy. If you’ve recently traveled to an area at high-risk for the coronavirus, an insurer may postpone issuing a policy, exclude that cause of death from your policy or even decline the application.


“Both travel and pre-existing conditions can delay the life insurance underwriting process,” says Les Masterson, Insure’s managing editor. “We provide information on what you need to know about the differences between term and permanent life insurance, so you can figure out which one is right for your situation.”


Other options, though costlier, are guaranteed life insurance and simplified life insurance. These policies enable individuals to rapidly secure coverage without medical exams or responding to any health-related questions. In our article, we also explore group life insurance’s pros and cons.


Insure.com additionally discusses how disability insurance may be extremely important for anyone affected by the coronavirus or other factors.
