Will it really cost 150% More? Is that accurate or not?
Yes, but with out talking to you in person, it is still a best guided estimate. Life insurance underwriting will be looking deeply into records to ascertain the risk they may be taking.
Be sure to understand that substandard ratings are technically labeled as “table ratings” by life insurance companies. If you end up approved at a “strict” substandard rating, the insurance company themselves might actually call it Table F or Table 6.
Most companies charge 25% per table below the standard rating. It’s possible you could get approved anywhere from Table F to Table J or tables 6-10 rating, which would cost 150%-250% more than the standard rating. We find the most common of the these is Table F That is why we multiply by 150%.
