Hello - I have heard that insurers have been rejecting new term life policies if the individual was detected Covid 19. My questions are :

 

  1. Is this true?
  2. If yes, what are the remedies?
  3. Can you name some specific insurers who are not rejecting new policies

Term Life Insurance

Hello Shashank,


Yes, Insurers are currently flagging anyone who has a history of COVID19. Most insurers postpone their decision for 3-6 months before they consider your proposal - this means they would ask you to come back after 6 months of recovery from COVID19, helping them assess the risk better. In case there are any after effects like organ damage etc. in this 6 months period there are chances that the proposal may be again declined.


We therefore recommend people with financial dependents to not delay buying a term life cover, while you are healthy and safe.
