Why Underwriting Can Take Several Weeks

The underwriting process involves several steps. Your application will be carefully reviewed along with your exam results. Sometimes a doctor's statement and health records are requested and have to be mailed, emailed or faxed to the company. Sometimes the underwriter may determine that he/she needs more information from you. We will help you as much as possible to be in compliance at all stages of the process.

Sometimes there are administrative delays. When a life insurance company offers exceptionally competitive rates, their underwriting department can get backed up with processing applications.
