Foresters Financial Raises Amount Limits on Non-Medical Term Life Insurance – InsuranceNewsNet

Foresters Financial, the fraternal life insurance company that is boldly redefining the life insurance industry through innovation, purpose and health, today announced that it has increased the standard face amount limits for its Strong Foundation product offering1an industry-leading non-medical term life insurance solution designed to meet a range of customer needs.

Insurance is dependent on answers to medical and other application questions and an insurance search and review.

Effective immediately, the maximum standard face amount limit for 18-55 year olds is now $500,000, an increase of 25%. The maximum standard face amount limit for those over 56 is now $250,000, an increase of 66%.

The strong foundation is available with a 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 year warranty2, 3 duration of death benefits and conversion to permanent life insurance benefits; approval decisions are also often provided in 10 minutes or less.

Foresters Financial US President Matt Berman said, “Too many people are still living without life insurance, at a time of considerable economic uncertainty. We are excited to announce this increase in face amount limits for Strong Foundation, our non-medical term life solution. In addition, our recently reduced insurance coverage for people living with diabetes will allow more people to achieve higher levels of life insurance and in turn be able to provide greater protection for themselves and their loved ones.”

This non-medical solution represents an opportunity to offer greater insurance protection to people living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), those who consume tobacco and certain amounts of cannabis, and people living with diabetes. In addition, in light of increased inflation and the rising cost of home ownership, the Strong Foundation provides protection for larger mortgages for qualified applicants.

In addition to higher face amounts and non-medical coverage, Strong Foundation policyholders are members who have access to all Foresters exclusive member benefits4 and privileges.
