Fully Underwritten Applications

What is a Fully Underwritten application process?

A Fully Underwritten application process is where coverage is subject to underwriting approval by the insurer, and medical information may be requested from you or from your attending physician(s). A physical exam, EKG, blood test, or other information may also be required. These requirements will be at no cost to you and acceptance into the life plan is not guaranteed.

To qualify, an individual must be diagnosed as having a life expectancy of 12 months or less. Complete details are in the Certificate of Insurance. Receipt of the accelerated benefit may be taxable, or may adversely affect your eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions
  • How much coverage do I need? Starr Wright USA enables you to determine how much life insurance coverage you need by using this Life Insurance Needs Calculator.
  • How does this coverage differ from the life insurance I'm offered through my federal job? Coverage differs in several ways. With our level term plans, your rates are designed to remain level.* You may apply for more coverage at any time – not just at “significant life events,” and your coverage remains active even if you leave federal service.
  • When will my coverage become effective?  Insurance will take effect on the first day of the month on or following the date your coverage is approved by ReliaStar Life, provided the initial premium is paid within 31 days. 
  • When will my coverage end? Level term coverage will end on the earliest of: the anniversary date on or after the insured person reaches age 75, or when you fail to make payment of premiums when due; you request for such insurance to end; or if the group policy is terminated. For members or spouses who are under age 70 at the end of a level term period, coverage will not reduce. For members or spouses who reach age 70 while coverage is still in force, and you’re not in a level term period, your insurance is reduced to the lesser of 50% or $250,000.
  • How often are premiums renewed? Premiums remain level for the initial 10-year period. The initial premium will not change for the first 10 years unless the insurance company exercises its right to change premium rates for all insureds covered under the group policy with 60 days advance written notice. At the end of the 10-year period, coverage will automatically renew without evidence of insurability to group term life insurance with 5-year age banded rates. Renewal premiums are not guaranteed and will be based on your then attained age and will increase as you age. However, if you are under age 65 you may apply for a subsequent 10-year period at a level rate based on your then attained age, subject to the submission of satisfactory medical evidence to the insurer.
