Accidental Life Insurance
Death by accident is the #1 killer of people under 45 and a leading cause of death for all adults (1). You can have reasonably priced coverage that you need to protect your family and your investments.
Most Accidental Death benefit policies are available from ages 20 through 65, with coverage limits between $50,000 and $500,000. The policy is underwritten on a guaranteed issue basis – there are no medical questions on the application. Most applications are approved within 24 hours.
Most policies pay full benefits until age 70, at which time benefits reduce by 50%. Benefits then remain level at this reduced amount until the policy expires at age 80.
