Are you looking for quick term life insurance without the hassle of a medical exam, a long, detailed background form, and weeks of waiting for underwriting to approve you? Instant issue term life insurance with no waiting period can give you the coverage you want, without the headaches.

In some situations, waiting for an underwriting decision is not a luxury you can afford.

How much life insurance can you get without a medical exam?

Also known as non-medical life insurance, instant issue life insurance is best suited for people in good health who are between ages 18 and 60. For young and healthy individuals, rates for instant issue coverage can end up being less expensive than a fully underwritten policy in some cases. Term lengths are usually 10, 15, and 20 years, with coverage amounts ranging from $25,000 to $500,000.

Although there’s no medical exam involved, it’s important to be honest about your medical history. If you were to die and/or the insurance company were to discover during the contestability period (typically 2 years from the start of the policy) that the answers you provided were not accurate, the policy could be canceled and any claim denied. Honesty in life insurance is always the best policy.

One of the easiest types of policies to obtain, instant issue (non-medical) life insurance might be the solution when you need coverage in the shortest time possible, with no medical exam.
