Foresters Financial Increases Face Amount Limits for Strong Foundation Non-Medical Term Life Insurance

Foresters Financial Increases Face Amount Limits for Strong Foundation Non-Medical Term Life Insurance

(Toronto, ON, July 25, 2022) – Foresters Financial™ (Foresters), the fraternal life insurer that’s boldly redefining the life insurance industry through innovation, purpose and wellness, today announced that it has increased the standard face amount limits for its Strong Foundation product offering[1], an industry-leading non-medical term life insurance solution designed to meet a range of client needs. Insurability depends on answers to medical and other application questions and underwriting searches and review.

Effective immediately, the maximum standard face amount limit for individuals aged 18-55 is now $500,000, an increase of 25%.  The maximum standard face amount limit for those aged 56+ is now $250,000, an increase of 66%.

Strong Foundation is available with 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30-year term guaranteed [2][3] death benefit durations and conversion to permanent life insurance privileges; approval decisions are also often provided in 10 minutes or less.

Foresters Financial US President, Matt Berman, said, "Too many individuals are still living without life insurance at a time of significant economic uncertainty. We’re excited to announce this increase in face amount limits for Strong Foundation, our non-medical Term life solution. Additionally, our recently relaxed underwriting for individuals living with diabetes will allow more individuals to attain higher levels of life insurance and in turn, be able to provide greater protection for themselves and their loved ones.”

This non-med solution represents an opportunity to offer greater insurance protection to those living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and those who consume tobacco and certain amounts of cannabis, and individuals living with diabetes. In addition, in light of heightened inflation and with the rising cost of home ownership, Strong Foundation provides protection for larger mortgages, for qualified applicants.

In addition to higher face amounts and non-medical underwriting, Strong Foundation insureds are members who have access to all of Foresters exclusive member benefits [4]  and privileges.
