Why Accidental Death Life Insurance Has No Medical Tests

Accidental death life insurance policies may seem like a good deal at first glance. They can provide up to $250,000 of coverage without an medical and with no health questions. Plus, premiums can remain level, in many instances, to age 70 and beyond.

The premiums are affordable too. BMO Insurance offers a plan direct via its website and call center where applicants can obtain $250,000 of coverage for $22.99 a month.

The problem is, only a small percentage of all life insurance claims are result of accidental death (less than 5%). If the insured dies of cancer, stroke heart attack, or any other type of illness, the policy will not pay out.

It’s for this reason, accidental death insurance is one of the highest profit-grossing products sold by life insurance companies in Canada. The deal is even worse for older clients because the chance of dying by accident generally decreases as the insured ages.

If someone needs life insurance, they likely require it whether they pass away by accident or by any other cause. To buy a policy that just pays out in the event of accident, does not properly address the underlying life insurance need.

    It is better to get other kind of insurances because chances of dying from an accident is pretty low. You must get the benefits you paid for so it is better to pay a higher amount for a different insurance than get nothing at all.

      H Randy,

      You make a good points about the low percentages of dying by accident. Accidental death insurance is generally a very profitable policy for insurance companies.
