Life Insurance for Diabetics
Unfortunately, many insurance agents in this country are not properly trained to help diabetics who want life insurance. So, with an untrained agent, this process might become a game of chance, and that is exactly what you don't want. A policy might be submitted and come back rated far above what was originally presented or the policy might be declined altogether! While we cannot promise success every time, we are very good at what we do and able to provide you with information about the underwriting process, what to expect, what we are concerned with that might affect the process, what type of policy you should apply for, whether or not to take a medical exam in conjunction with the policy, and premium quotes that you can reasonably count on being accurate*. Our goal is to get a policy issued. Period.
