Life insurance is regulated by the various states, not by the federal government. It is deemed to be contrary to public interest to encourage suicide by making insurance proceeds available to those who see no way out of their financial difficulties.

In sum, even if death is by suicide, benefits will normally be paid if death occurs after the policy has been in force for 2 years. Be sure, however, to refer to the written terms of the policy and the insurance code of the state in which the policy was issued, as they will always prevail.
