    exam any time until insurance ends at age 80. Rates will be based on your age at that time.

  • Q.
    What if I answer "yes" to a health question?
  • A.

    Answering “yes” does not automatically disqualify you from coverage. We may contact you to
    ask for more information or clarification of your answer. Most who apply are accepted.

  • Q.
    Why do you need my Social Security Number?
  • A.

    New York Life requires your social security number to verify the individual we are insuring. This
    assists us in protecting the privacy of your information. Life insurance companies are also
    required to obtain a taxpayer identification number (which is your social security number) in the
    event that we release money to you that could be considered taxable.

  • Q.
    What happens after I complete my application?
  • A.

    You will be contacted in about 7 to 14 business days regarding your application. If approved, a policy will be mailed to you.

  • Q.
    How long does it take for coverage to begin, once my application is approved?
  • A.

    Coverage will take effect on the date shown in your policy – normally seven days after approval
    of your application. You’ll have full benefits from the day your coverage takes effect.

  • Q.
    Can I keep my coverage if my health changes?
  • A.

    Once approved, changes in your health will not affect your coverage. Also, since it’s your own individual policy, you will remain covered if you change jobs or retire.

  • Q.
    How does the 30-Day satisfaction guarantee work?
  • A.

    You'll receive a policy when coverage is approved. If you decide this coverage isn't for you, for
    any reason, you can return it within 30 days and receive a refund.
