The Dark Side of Life Insurance

by Staff Blogger | April 28th, 2017

Physical exams. Medical histories. Interviews. Those are just a few of the hoops you must jump through to secure life insurance. The reason life insurance companies are so thorough when accessing eligibility has everything to do with their bottom line. They want to invest in healthy folks so they can collect premiums for years without paying out a dime. Can’t fault them for that. It’s just good business. But we can fault them for raising premiums out of the blue for the exact same policy. We call that life insurance company fraud.

Part of the process for securing life insurance is the quote. The insurance company agrees to offer you significant death benefits in exchange for an agreed upon premium payment every month, quarter, or year. As long as you keep up your side of the bargain, they will keep up theirs. Unfortunately, some life insurance companies in Tennessee have recently informed policyholders that their premiums are skyrocketing, leaving them with two choices: pay the inflated premiums or cancel the policy.

If that’s happened to you, the life insurance company fraud attorneys at Ponce Law want to speak with you immediately. We know your rights as a policyholder, and we’ll do everything within our power to make sure the insurance company lives up to their end of the bargain. Don’t let the insurance company take advantage of you and your family. Contact us today.
