Most life insurance policies do not pay out for suicide.
No. Life insurance policies are usally voided in the case of suicide.
No, suicide is an exclusion where a death benefit is concerned.
In case of suicide, the insurance company will not provide any compensation for the family of the policy holder. Life insurance will only take care of the family of the policy holder when he does not take his own life.
No, if the life insurance policy is less than two years old. Some insurance companies would not pay at all in case of suicide. It all depends on the conditions in the life insurance policy.
Life insurance policies normally don't pay on certain types of death, like suicide (typically a two-year moratorium) or capital punishment.
If you are the beneficiary of a life insured person who committed suicide, and the policy was older that two years (depending on what company and state), then yes.
Life Insurance Companies do not cover suicide, subject to the "Suicide Clause" limitation in all life insurance policies. The suicide clause stats that no death payment will be made if an insured commits suicide within the first two years (one year in Colorado) that the policy is in force. This clause protects the insurance company against adverse selection - the purchase of a life isnurance policy in contemplation of a planned death in order for the beneficiary of the life insurance policy to collect the life insurance proceeds.
No. I don't think suicide is not covered by any insurance policy in any state/country. Suicide is willful and intentional killing of oneself and no insurance company will cover it. So, your beneficiary will not get even a single penny if you commit suicide.
If the insurance policy is older than two years of contestability period, then a benefit will be paid to the beneficiary.
