No Consent Life Insurance


Posted on 22nd September 2009 by Rita in Life Insurance

While at work, I handle a number of Live Chat inquiries that come across a Life Insurance website. As a result of this job, I get some unusual questions presented on my screen. Recently I was asked if someone could purchase life insurance for a parent without their (the parent’s) consent?

At first I get a big chuckle from the question, then I begin to think why would you want to do such a thing? Are you up to no good? I do not know of any insurance company that would issue such a policy without the proposed insureds signature. The only situation that I can think of that would require no signature from the proposed insured is when a parent obtains a policy on a minor child to cover the funeral expenses that may be a hardship if the unfortunate happened to the child.

To the best of my knowledge there is no such product available from any reputable insurance company. If you know of such a thing from personal experienced or know of someone who has, I would be wondering if the proposed insured had their signature forged on the insurance application. If there is an insurance company out there that says they offer such a product, I would also be wondering how legit that particular company is?

The basic requirement for life insurance is the person who buys a policy must have an insurable interest of the person being insured. Insurable interest is having an interest in the survival of the person who is being insured. For example, a wife has an insurable interest in her husband”s life, because she would be financially harmed if he were to die. Another example, a company owner has an insurable interest in a key employee”s life. The talents and experience of key individual(s) account for much of the business success. Therefore the company would suffer financially if the key employee were to die.
