Most life insurance policies do not pay out for suicide.

No. Life insurance policies are usally voided in the case of suicide.

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, suicide is an exclusion where a death benefit is concerned.

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.

Suicide is usually excluded under a life insurance policy. The suicide exclusion usually states that there is no payout of life insurance proceeds if the death is due to suicide within two years of the puchase of the life insurance policy. In some states, like Colorado, the suicide exclusion is one year.

Generally no life insurer entertains payment against suicidal death.Hope, this will clear any ambiguity in this regard.

User Avatar

Suicide and life insurance isn't regulated by state law, it is regulated by the insurance company and outlined in the insurance papers.

User Avatar

Most life insurance carriers have a 2 year "suicide clause" that protects them paying benefits from a policy whose owner killed himself. The state of issue has nothing to do with it, only the time period the carrier sets.

User Avatar

The person who is eligible to collect life insurance is the beneficiary. Anybody can be named the beneficiary. There are steps that need to be taken before a person can collect.

Read the specific policy exclusions in the life insurance contract. It will detail the impact of a suicide on the benefits, if any.

User Avatar

That depends on the policy not the location. Most policies have a 2 year exclusion on suicide. After 2 years, suicide should also be covered. Consult your policy. mcdlife.com

To the best of my knowledge, In the US all life insurance companies cover suicide after 2 years of in force issue.

User Avatar

Probably not unless the insurance company decides to allow it or it was a provision in the life insurance policy. Normally, people are not able to collect on their life insurance policy until the insured dies.

User Avatar

Most, if not all, life insurance policies have an exclusion that states that the policy will not pay if the death is ruled a suicide.

User Avatar

I dont think so. Most insurance policies do not cover death by intentional suicide.

User Avatar

Life insurance does normally include an exclusion period for suicide, and 2 years is common. It depends on the state you live in.

User Avatar

Most insurance compnaies have a 2 year suicide clause. Death by suicide after that period, the claim would be paid.
