Section in a life insurance policy stating that after the policy is in force two years, the company cannot void it because of misrepresentation or concealment by the insured in obtaining the policy. For example, when asked on the application if there is a history of diabetes in the family, the applicant writes no, knowing that his or her father and mother both have diabetes. This does not void the policy after two years. However, if the age of the applicant had been understated say, to obtain a lower premium the company will recalculate the benefit according to the correct age.
