How it works
Apply in minutes
Fill out the super quick online application and get an instant decision. If approved, you could get covered in minutes.
Choose your coverage & term length
Choose between $50K - $500K ($25K increments) for anyone aged 20-45 and $50K - $350K ($25K increments) for anyone 46-70. Term lengths vary from 10-30 years.
Get covered
Once you attach a credit card and make your first payment, you’re covered.
The instant advantage & cost

Your application will undergo a simplified underwriting process, which means you’ll get an instant decision. This life insurance can cost more than other types of coverage that require traditional underwriting because there aren’t any medical exams or lab tests. Your price is determined based on the answers you provide to some personal and health questions. In many cases, this is the best option for people who may have trouble getting coverage elsewhere.

The issuance of the policy may depend upon the answers to the health questions set forth in the application.
