Substandard Life Insurance


Definition of "Substandard life insurance"

Ashley Davis
  Roby Realty

Coverage for risks deemed uninsurable at standard rates by normal standards (persons whose medical histories include serious illness such as heart disease or whose physical conditions are such that they are rated below standard.) A policy may specifically deny benefits for death caused by a specific illness or medical condition or may provide only partial benefits. Many risks that would have been rejected as uninsurable under earlier underwriting standards, either because of their hazardous occupations or physical impairment, now can be insured under an extra-risk policy at an extra premium; even applicants who have survived cancer may be acceptable. The premium may include an extra flat fee per thousand dollars of coverage, or is one that would normally be charged to an older person.
