  • Does not offer common riders.
  • Cannot be converted into a permanent policy.

Bestow Instant Coverage

Bestow’s 100% online application process has four simple parts:

  1. Basic identifying information: email, address, and Social Security Number.
  2. Life information: including citizenship, medical history, lifestyle, and hobbies.
  3. Beneficiary information: whoever would receive the death benefit in the event of the insured’s death.
  4. Policy and payment details: if approved, choose the coverage amount and term length, then enter credit card info to purchase and bind the policy.

No medical exam is required. Through questions about lifestyle and health, identity verification, and pulling available data about the individual applying such as prescription and credit history, driving records, and prior attempts at insurance, Bestow can underwrite policies as effectively as with a medical exam.
