Everything You Need to Know About No Exam Life Insurance

No exam life insurance is self-explanatory —Life insurance without the need for a medical exam.

You may have heard about it on your quest to find the right policy for you, however, you may have questions about the details.

What is No Exam Life Insurance?

It’s exactly what it sounds like — No medical exam life insurance is life insurance without undergoing a medical exam.

While standard life insurance policies require a medical exam and take a long time to underwrite your application, no exam life insurance without a physical exam, or life insurance without a health check can be obtained much quicker. Standard life insurance policies typically require a medical exam, whereas no exam policies are term life insurance policies without a medical exam.

No exam life insurance is a great option for people who don’t have time to go to the doctor, who hate needles or who simply need to get life insurance quickly.

What Are Popular No Exam Life Insurance Policies?

simpilfied issue

Simplified Issue

With this type of policy, the insurance company may request medical records from your doctor and perhaps a phone interview, but you can skip the actual exam. Because there is some underwriting involved, approval isn't always instant or guaranteed. However, it is much quicker than a traditional policy, and if you're in relatively good physical health, this is a good option.

However, it is much quicker than a traditional policy, and if you're in relatively good physical health, this is a good option.
guaranteed issue

Guaranteed Issue

No underwriting is involved in this type of policy and the insurance company won't request any information from you. Of course, this convenience usually comes with a higher price tag. However, if you're applying for GI no exam life insurance, whether it's because you need life insurance quickly or don't have time to get to the doctor, the price is probably worth it. That way, you know you're covered and can rest easy.
graded death benefit

Graded Death Benefit

Similar to Guaranteed Issue, only here, you'll be asked a few questions about your health. Then, the death benefit payout will be graded. Typically, it's something like: - Death in first year = 25% of death benefit paid - Death in second year = 50% paid - Death in year 3 and beyond = 100% paid Of course, the exact terms depend on the policy you choose. The benefit of this over Guaranteed Issue is that it's typically less expensive and offers higher coverage amount.

Who Should Get No Exam Life Insurance?

No exam life insurance is ideal for people who need life insurance quickly (approval can be as little as just a few days!), who don't have time to go to the doctor or who hate needles. It's also good for people who wouldn't get the best rates with traditional life insurance. This is life insurance with no exam and immediate coverage.

Approval is Fast & Easy

Depending on the type of no exam policy, approval is guaranteed or at the very least, granted much more easily than traditional life insurance policies. People with different health standings can get approved within days. There is little-to-no underwriting involved when calculating the premiums.
