Yes, I do think that insurance companies will raise the cost of insurance, because you are a teenager(well that's what I'm guessing). But, it may go up even higher when you get your driver's license because you would be able to drive by yourself most of the time without a parent. And insurance statistics confirm that teenagers drive fast, wreckless, and less-experienced. So the good has to suffer because of the bad. So to answer your question, the rates will most likely go up, but not as much as if you were on your own insurance.

What is the maximum reimbursement for life insurance for a insured child?

Before I answer this question, I would first like to clarify that reimbursement means to get money back so I am assuming you are referring to closing a child's life insurance policy to obtain the cash that was in the cash value portion of a whole life account. And that always depends on the amount of the premium and how long the premiums have been paid in to the policy. If you are referring to the death benefit for a child, than the answer to that is: up to the amount that the parents and other siblings would carry. For example, if 2 parents each have $50,000 and there is an application for a child for life insurance, the maximum amount would be $50,000. A child cannot carry more insurance than the parents carry. If there are siblings involved, the amount of coverage would be equal to all children in the household. I hope this helps answer your question. My name is Patrick Villalobos of the Patrick Villalobos Agency and I am with the Farmers Insurance Group of Companies in Chicago, IL.
