Life Insurance FAQs
What does our policies are portable mean?
This means, if you purchase the policy in Cayman and move to
another country, the coverage remains in force as long as the premium payments are maintained.
Are your quotes guaranteed?
Yes. When we provide you a quote for 10, 15, 20 or 30 year Term Life plans, this means that for the period of years you select, the premiums and death benefits are guaranteed.
Should I consider a longer period for term life products?
We encourage our clients to consider the purchase of 20 or 30 year term life products – this is because while one is relatively young and healthy, they can get our preferred rates and have it guaranteed at this low rate for the term period.
Can I use one policy for my entire family?
Our Universal Life products have a benefit that allows you to insure husband/wife and children under one policy.
who pays for the medical underwriting requirements?
We pay for the medical underwriting requirements of the company.
Are your policies 'decreasing term' policies?
When acquiring life insurance for the coverage of a bank mortgage, please keep in mind that our policies are not “decreasing term” policies – the face value remains the same, even as your mortgage obligation decreases – this of course leaves more to the beneficiaries in the long run as the mortgage is paid off.
What differentiates your 'Cash Back' term life policy?
Our “Cash Back” term life policies provide for a slightly higher premium, however, at the end of the policy period, whether is be 15, 20 or 30 years, the policy holder receives back 100% of the total premiums paid. If the policy is cancelled after 5 years, a percentage of the premiums paid are refunded.
