The life insurance buying process from start to finish — meaning from the time you apply for a policy to when you officially get a decision on your coverage — typically takes an average of four to six weeks. The bulk of this time is the underwriting step of the application process.
Life insurance companies have a team of underwriters who review each individual application to determine how much coverage and at what cost the applicant can be offered. This step can take several weeks.
We are always on the lookout for new processes and products to make buying life insurance easier for our customers. This is why we have partnered with Haven Life.
Haven Life provides the first solution for buying medically underwritten term life insurance online – no paper applications, no phone calls, no more waiting several weeks for a decision. When you apply for the Haven Term policy, if approved, you receive an immediate decision on your application and coverage begins right away.
The Haven Term policy is a great fit for people who:
- Are between the ages of 18 and 65
- Are looking to insure themselves or their spouse – it can’t be for business purposes
- Are looking for up to $1 million in term life insurance coverage
- Are looking for a self-serve way to buy life insurance (but customer service is available if you need help!)
- Aren’t on active duty in the military
- Aren’t looking to replace an existing policy with the Haven Term policy
- Aren’t looking for a convertible term life insurance policy
