A. L. Saland Insurance Solutions Inc. wants to take the guesswork out of life insurance.
Serving the state of Florida, our seasoned agents understand that underwriting and calculating insurance rates can be confusing to understand.
Here are seven demographic, health, and lifestyle factors that directly impact life insurance premiums:
Term limits and length influence both premiums and payouts. As a general rule, permanent life insurance is more expensive since it guarantees death benefits.
Life insurance becomes more costly as you age. Since younger people have longer life expectancies and more time to pay for premiums, rates are typically lower.
Like younger individuals, women also have longer life expectancies when compared to men. In fact, women in the U.S. live an average of five years longer.
Insurers will review your medical history for any pre-existing conditions. Chronic ailments, like cancer or heart disease, increase premiums or may disqualify you from a policy altogether.
Your family’s medical history will be reviewed as well. A pattern of illness could produce the same results as above, even if you’re currently healthy. Underwriters must weigh the risk of you developing future problems later in life.
Some occupations are simply more dangerous than others. Jobs, like construction or commercial fishing, add heightened risk and higher premiums.
How you spend your free time matters too. As part of their risk assessment, insurers will try to get a complete picture of your hobbies, behaviors, and overall lifestyle.
