Coverage Amount
How much coverage do I need?
If you are an employed family income breadwinner with minor children, financial planners suggest carrying a minimum of ten times your annual income. If you are a non-working caregiver at home with minor children, we suggest at least $150,000. If you are an adult looking for burial coverage only, we suggest $5,000 to $25,000. Click here to access the Life Happens life insurance needs calculator which can guide you through choosing an amount.

Any tobacco, nicotine or marijuana use?
Why do life insurers ask about this?
Nicotine use of any kind, including marijuana use, is looked at very closely by all life insurers. Smoking, chewing, inhaling in a vaporized form, consuming in edible products, and wearing a patch on the skin, all constitute use of these products. Non-admittance of marijuana use can result in a decline. Sources of information the insurer may use include: statements made on your application, telephone interviews, your paramed exam results (if one is required), your outside medical records and your Medical Information Bureau (MIB) profile. If you currently use marijuana AND any product containing tobacco or nicotine, please select the response that most closely describes your tobacco or nicotine use. Always be 100% honest when you answer tobacco use questions to ensure accurate quotes. Remember, a false statement on an application for insurance could void your coverage.

Weight (with clothes on)
Why does the life insurance company need to know your actual weight?

Why am I being asked about my blood pressure?
Hypertension, also called "elevated blood pressure" or "high blood pressure", is looked at closely by all life insurance companies. If you don't remember your last readings, it's OK to choose "I don't know" as your answer. In that case, we'll assume that you do not have a history of hypertension and we will show you the lowest possible rates. If you choose a plan that requires a paramedical exam, which is really a face-to-face interview or "mini-medical" then our technician will check your blood pressure at that time. If you need personalized advice or help, call our insurance counselors at 1-800-324-6370.
