Is it legal to buy life insurance on family member without their knowledge?
Usually, the life insurance company requires that the insured person provide information regarding their health, such as answering health-related questions on the application, take a physical exam, and sign the application for life insurance coverage. Because of these requirements, it would be difficult to take out a life insurance policy without the insured person being advised on the policy. However, some life insurance companies may offer simplified issue life insurance; such as, Globe Life for adults or children, Gerber, Colonial Penn, Garden State Life, etc. In this case you may have a parent buy a life insurance policy for their child, or an adult buy a life insurance policy for their spouse either online, over the phone, or through the mail. However, these policies still may require a signature from the person whose life is being insured. So, that being the case, it would seem possible, and legal, if life insurance companies who offer simplified life insurance policies are already doing it, in a way. I am not certain about the signature from the insured person. You should inform the person you are taking out a life insurance policy on.
