The doctor of insurance company also presents a report regarding the proposer to the company. The doctor certifies that the customer is free from fatal diseases and there is no risk if the company issues him a life insurance policy. The report I very important because the company evaluates the risk of life on the basis of this report.

To take out a life insurance policy either on your life or the life of another, you must have a justifiable cause. In other words they must be a family member or be aware and agree to have their life insured.
You are required to take an aids test to ensure you do not have the virus, based on the results, they will move forward with the application.Alternatively you can elect not to have the test, and sign an exclusion that if this occurs, the claim will not pay out.
You must answer an intensive questionnaire about your past and present medical history, lifestyle and habits, for example smoking and drinking.
You are required to tell the truth because if evidence is found later that proves the contrary, the claim may be refused.
Should this all prove OK, they will give you a quote on a monthly amount to pay, based on the underwriting they do on your application. Taking into consideration the amount you want cover for.
Then once premiums are paid you are covered.
Some conditions of exclusion are standard, and exclude death by suicide in the first two years, and sometimes also exclude death resulting from undisclosed activities like skydiving and paragliding.

Life insurance is the financial protection given to your family in the case of death or when a payment is made to you for surviving the policy term. For this payment, you will have to make a fixed amount as payment to the life insurance company. In some policies, there are also options for benefits during critical illness and additional protection for your family.

Based on my personal experience, it's better to pay for insurance than have a large bill due to case of an emergency. I am sure everyone knows how insurance is important in our life but many prefer to ignore that. Once I faced an awful situation and almost lost my house. In order to avoid such problems, just find a good company. If you don't know how to choose the best one, make sure to read reviews. For example, you can find geico reviews here.
