Covid- 19: the Effect on Life and Disability Insurance
Covid-19 has changed how insurance companies are accepting and reviewing applications for life and disability insurance. The changes implemented may be temporary, yet with the unknown outcome of the virus, most insurance companies are being more cautious. The good news is that many companies
are skipping the medical exam requirement to apply, but are heavily relying on medical records, prescription checks and signed statements of Covid-19 contact.
Should you wait? The problem with waiting is that you may never get around to it or risk getting sick or injured then it may not be possible. If you are healthy, get it now. Don’t wait! If you are worried about meeting face to face, meetings can easily be held over Zoom. Applications can be submitted and signed electronically as well.
What do I recommend?
Work with an insurance professional. There has been a rise of online life insurance applications. Although there is nothing wrong taking care of it yourself, these premiums may be slightly higher. An insurance professional would review your situation, shop around to different companies and give you a better idea of your options and cost. Not everyone’s situation and need are the same. If you currently have a life or disability insurance policy, you should also set up an appointment for a review. A recent life change like a new baby, house, or job may change your insurance needs. Other items to review would be your beneficiaries and your employer coverage. There are a lot of bases to cover so leave it to the professionals to help.
