Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) - Life Insurance in New York

What is life insurance?

Life insurance is a contract between you and an insurance company that provides a death benefit to your beneficiaries in the event of your passing. It helps ensure financial security for your loved ones.

What types of life insurance are available?

There are two main types of life insurance: term life insurance and permanent life insurance. Term life insurance covers you for a specific period, while permanent life insurance (including whole and universal life) provides lifelong coverage and includes a cash value component.

How is the cost of life insurance determined?

The cost of life insurance is based on factors such as your age, health, lifestyle, occupation, the type of policy, coverage amount, and term length.

Do I need a medical exam to get life insurance?

Many life insurance policies require a medical exam to determine your health status. However, there are no-exam policies available that may have higher premiums or lower coverage amounts.

Can I adjust my life insurance coverage over time?

With some types of life insurance, such as universal life, you have the flexibility to adjust your coverage and premiums over time. Term life policies typically have fixed coverage and premiums for the term length.

What is the difference between term life and whole life insurance?

Term life insurance provides coverage for a specified period, usually 10, 20, or 30 years, and pays a death benefit only if you pass away during the term. Whole life insurance provides lifelong coverage, includes a cash value component that grows over time, and pays a death benefit regardless of when you pass away.

How much life insurance do I need?

The amount of life insurance you need depends on your financial situation, including your income, debts, future expenses (such as college tuition), and your family’s needs. A common guideline is to have coverage equal to 7-10 times your annual income.

Can I get life insurance if I have a pre-existing condition?

Yes, it is possible to get life insurance with a pre-existing condition, though it may affect your premium rates. Some insurers specialize in covering individuals with health issues.

What happens if I miss a life insurance premium payment?

If you miss a premium payment, most policies have a grace period (usually 30 days) during which you can make the payment without losing coverage. If you fail to pay within the grace period, the policy may lapse.

What are the benefits of having life insurance?

Life insurance provides financial security for your loved ones, covering expenses such as funeral costs, debts, mortgage payments, and future living expenses. It can also be used for estate planning and to leave a financial legacy.
