A standard life insurance policy usually contains a provision stating that death that is the result of suicide will not be covered if it occurs within a stated period of time after the issuance of the policy. The period of time varies, but it is frequently two years.

The reasoning for this provision is that insurance is intended to cover fortuitous occurrences, not ones that are planned or intended.

NOTE= Commiting suicide is never the answer to a problem.

For most insurance policies, if the person takes their own life the policy does not pay out.the last time I cheked, life insurance only covered natural causes and accidents. Suicide si not a natural reason or accident and was not covered last time I checked.

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.

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

It is a kind of insurance where you pay for a limited number of years, but get insurance for all the rest of your life.

Read the contract. Most Life Insurance policies do NOT pay out for suicide. Some do, but only after a pre-defined period (I.E. after 10 years of having the policy in force). I've never seen one that does not exclude suicide.

In most states, policies include a suicide exclusions for the first two years of the policy. I will look at your policy and call the insurance company.
