Assumption Life offers two no medical exam plans: Golden Protection and Total Protection. Golden Protection has a feature called “Plus” which increases the face amount by 3% every year but the premiums remain the same each year. The “Plus” feature is about 30% more expensive to reflect the cost of increasing the coverage amount by 3% each year. After 10 years, the coverage is 30% more, at which point this product becomes worth the extra premiums. Golden Protection is the less expensive of the two but there are more questionnaires to satisfy.
- Coverage amounts from $1,000 to $50,000
- No height or weight tables
- People with diabetes, type 1 or 2 can typically qualify
- Coverage starts from when the application is completed and cheque submitted
- Paid up and guaranteed cash values start in the third year
issue ages of between 40 and 85 years of age
- Benefit amount doubles if death caused by accident and triples if it is in public transportation vehicle
- If diagnosed with only a few months to live, you can apply for 50% of the death benefit while still living. The remainder paid on death. Before using this option, consider the purpose of the life insurance and if there will be sufficient funds left for that purpose.
Assumption Life also has a non-medical term plan called InstaTerm, that any of our knowledgeable agents would be pleased to review with you to determine if you qualify.
The second option from Assumption Life is called Total Protection. It asks only 4 qualifying questions for up to $30,000, and an additional 4 for up to $50,000 of coverage. Total Protection is also known as a “Deferred” plan, where if death occurs in the initial 2 years of the policy, due to a cause other than accidental, they will refund the premiums paid, but not the death benefit. After the policy has been in-force for 2 years, it will pay the benefit, regardless of cause. Total Protection is the more expensive of the two but easier to qualify since there are less questionnaires to complete.

Guaranteed Issue is an Alternative to No Medical Exam Insurance
With a guaranteed issue policy you will not be turned down for coverage regardless of your health status, age, or other factors. However, these policies are more expensive since there is almost no underwriting involved. Insurance companies who specialize in guaranteed issue life insurance offer permanent lifetime policies with low face values such as $5,000 to $25,000 of coverage. These amounts might seem insignificant in an industry where $1,000,000 policies are commonplace, but they make sense when you look more closely at what those payouts are used for. Guaranteed issue policies are purchased to settle debts, pay off accrued medical expenses, and/or pay for funeral and cemetery costs when the insured passes away.Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance
