In addition to this, while some insurance providers may decline the renewal of an insurance policy if the holder has reached a certain age (usually 65 years old) or if they have developed a chronic health condition or illness, our plans are typically guaranteed renewable for life.
This means that once your insurance policy has been accepted, you will be guaranteed continued insurance coverage at the time your policy is due for renewal, regardless of your age or health condition.
