This tip will save you time when buying life insurance
To apply for life insurance, the first thing you must do is fill in the application or proposal form.
You answer some health questions.
The life insurance company will accept, postpone or decline you based on the answers you give.
The good news is that 80% of people are accepted immediately on the basis of the application form alone.
This is known as no medical life assurance.
Unfortunately for the other 20%, there is still a bit of work to do.
Depending on your age, health and the amount of life insurance you are applying for, one or more of the following may be requested by the life insurer.
You have to choose your life insurance company wisely.
New Ireland may approve a €500,000 no medical life assurance policy based on an application form alone.
But Irish Life may insist on a medical exam to approve the same level of cover.
All other things being equal, we would recommend you apply to New Ireland in this case because New Ireland has a higher non medical limit.
The life insurance companies change their non medical limits regularly. This means today New Ireland might be best but tomorrow it could be Irish Life.
