Life Insurance in New York State Resources
When you apply for a large amount of life insurance—typically considered a jumbo case—you will usually need to provide some personal financial information. A jumbo case is different from insurer to insurer. It can be as small as $1 million or may need to reach $5 million before being considered a jumbo case. In a process called underwriting, the insurance will review an applicant’s medical history, family history, smoking status, driving record, alcohol or drug use, hazardous sports or hobbies, foreign travel, and residency. These factors together determine actual premium costs for the New York Term and Universal Life Insurance policy.
