Life insurance does cover deaths related to COVID-19, and life insurance rates are not impacted by the pandemic. We’re not treating this any differently than we would any other illness or travel advisory. You can still apply for life insurance online with Ethos. If your application is approved, you’ll be considered covered as soon as your first premium payment is made. Learn more
Your policy can help your loved ones in their greatest time of need. It can help cover some of life’s biggest expenses, like a home mortgage, debt, your children’s college tuition, and it can also replace lost income. Your policy can also help cover everyday expenses—anything your beneficiaries need, really. Ultimately, it’s up to them to decide how to use the payout.
