Why wouldn't he consent? I'd think he'd be happy to.. to answer your question no, you can't legally get a policy on an adult without their consent...you could check rates though, if his health is bad, it may be cost prohibitive, and you might want to check on final expense insurance rather than life.

You can certainly get a life policy on your spouse without their permission. Businesses do it all of the time. Walmart is a good example... they (used to) take out life policies on employees with Walmart being the beneficiaries all of the time (they were sued over this just a few years ago and I think the law has since reduced this ability to "key man" employees). I'm guessing that you only need to have a insurable interest in the person in order to obtain the policy. You certainly have an insurable interest in your spouse as if he dies, you suffer a financial loss.

What I know for sure is that I contacted my life long agent to discuss getting life insurance on my brother, (about six months before he died)...the agent said I can most certainly buy the policy, but he would have to sign off on it...(which wouldn't have been a problem)...The way I understood it, first of all he has to answer all the questions, (mostly health related of course) and then sign that these were accurate answers (material mis-rep don't cha know)...His ex-wife was told the same...course I drug my feet and didn't get it done..(absolutely no problem with him...he was more than cooperative-as I was trying to protect his daughters from lack of financial means for college etc, should he die)...Anyway that's the story I got in Missouri.

Ok, if one can "certainly" do this, name one company that will allow it.

Law in most states says that you can buy life insurance on the life of your legally married spouse and dependent, minor children without their consent. While the law may allow it, the insurer doesn't have to permit their agents to do it.

In addition, it's awfully hard these days to buy a life insurance policy on someone else without their knowledge, as the insured normally has to go through medical exams. This isn't, however, always the case. Certain types of policies (guaranteed issue/non-med) and coverage for younger, healthier people and low face amounts could mean no medical.

I am aware of several companies that allow the spouse to buy coverage on the other spouse without consent of the other. As well, the insurable interest must be present in order for you to buy coverage on another, and there are many misconceptions as to the legalities of insurable interest.

As to Wal-Mart buying insurance on employees under the guise of "key-person" insurance, that's a joke. :x It was simply a way for Wally-World to collect some minimal death benefits. There is absolutely no insurable interest involved. As inherent in the concept, in order to establish an insurable interest, there must be a legal, substantial financial relationship (such as partners in a company; banks and their borrowers, etc.) or an established familial connection/love and affection concern (between spouses, parents and children, grandparents/grandchildren, etc.).

How can you possibly convince me that WalMart had an insurable interest in a minimum-wage worker or assistant manager? They plug them in and out like I've been doing lately with video/sound/motherboards and power supplies in my piece of junk computer. Gimme a freakin' break. :evil:

Can't... which is why the law was changed/modified shortly after this came to light. While there is a "slight" argument for financial interest it's really nothing more then gambling.

I did some more research on getting unconcentual life insurance on a spouse. I did not find any info to show that it was not possible but I did read much info stating that it was at least difficult. I got the impression that if any carrier wrote this type of policy they were few and far between.

Quoted from Oregon Statute:

743.027 Consent of individual required for life and health insurance; exceptions. No life or health insurance policy upon an individual, except a policy of group life insurance or of group or blanket health insurance, shall be made or effectuated unless at the time of the making of the policy the individual insured, being of competent legal capacity to contract, applies therefor or has consented thereto in writing, except in the following cases:
(1) A spouse may effectuate such insurance upon the other spouse.
(2) Any person having an insurable interest in the life of a minor, or any person upon whom a minor is dependent for support and maintenance, may effectuate insurance upon the life of or pertaining to such minor.
(3) Family policies may be issued insuring any two or more members of a family on an application signed by either parent, a stepparent, or by a husband or wife.
(4) A person may effectuate insurance that provides for the final expenses of an adult who is dependent upon the person for support and maintenance. [1967 c.359 §342a; 1991 c.182 §2]



Just about every state allows this from the states I have researched. I again will state that I certainly don't know everything, and I don't know every state's laws covering this.

Hey Teacher, don't you think the laws have left a huge room for insurance frauds this way? If this provision remain available then curbing insurance problem would continue being a hardship.

The question isn't directed towards me, but this isn't a real issue. Except for small amounts of insurance, the insurance company is going to need the insured to prove their health. This can't be done without the knowledge of the insured.

The proof of insurability and good health (not the same things) are required of almost all insureds these days, except for small amounts of insurance usually issued on younger people.

As far as murder is concerned, you cannot, by law, collect a death benefit through the commission of a felony and certain misdemeanor crime. So, if the beneficiary killed the insured or did a "murder for hire" routine, the carrier would delay paying the death benefit until any police investigation was completed. Now, that being said, I've seen carriers pay too quickly and have had to go after the beneficiary civilly in order to recover the death benefit funds that shouldn't have been paid due to this kind of situation. Good luck to the insurers on that one.

This is a great issue! :D

Rajivirdi....My question to you is why do you want to get an insurance without his consent...
U say he has some health problems... I am sure he understands the need for insurance as well..
Also that he's retired that means he doesnt fall in an age group where you can get insurance without medicals....
Because of medical tests involved, it is next to impossible to get an insurance without him getting to know about it..

Posted: 06 May 2009 10:22 Post Subject:

Yeah but gnp there are all kinds of companys that offer, no medical exam or questions, guaranteed insurance if over 60 blah blah, not high limits by any means, but enough for what she's wanting (final expenses)

Posted: 06 May 2009 10:49 Post Subject:

True Lori.. I agree... But i still don't see a point as to why a person with health problems deny taking insurance.. What is the exact purpose of taking the policy without a person's consent?

I can't answer that, except to way that maybe the husband is a little touchy about death, and thinks his wife might have monetary motives...although I don't think so at all..i think she just wants to try and protect herself, especially against the cost of final expenses...there are just some people that refuse to face it...and maybe she doesn't want to upset him by talking about it..

hmmm yea..Hope that is the case.... n if it is truly so :wink:

I don't have a lot of personal experience with "burial" or "final expense" insurance, but we have a lot of people coming to us for their licensure that do this. They are appointed by the guaranteed issue carriers and solicit exactly that coverage. Lots of them are employed by the big funeral homes/cemeteries scattered throughout the country.

Lori was right, I think, on a couple of points. When taking to people who sell these policies, I've heard the "he won't get his own life insurance so I have to do it without him!" kind of thinking. And I understand...my father was the same way, and my mother almost killed him because he wouldn't get insured. Then she remembered he didn't have any life insurance!! :D :shock:

Secondly, the limits on these contracts are $10k or less, and the premiums are ghastly. Remember the commercial that said "And the coverage is available for as little as $7.95 per month!!!" :shock:

Next time ya see this- read the fine print that flies across the bottom of the screen at about 1200 mph and in a 4-point font, and you'll see that the $7.95 is the "unit" rate. A "Unit" of life insurance in this case is $1,000 or less. So, a $10k policy would cost you around $80 a month at the best price :shock: :shock: That's almost $1,000 a year in premiums for a policy that will pay $10k in the event of death, and remember- that's the BEST rate.

Have fun!

How can you research and no this.. I need to know.. If my spouze did without my knowledge... Can I go to a website to find this out.

No. You have to know which life insurance company is involved and send them a letter demanding to see your signature on the policy application under the belief that it has been forged and that the life insurance has been improperly obtained.

NO. This is prohibited by law in all 50 states. There is an exception for parents who wish to obtain life insurance for their minor children.

Will Facebook Dating affect the way we find love in Canada

A year after ending my last long term spouse, I decided to give online dating service personals a try. My former marital predated the explosion of dating apps, So this was fresh terrain for me. at first, Having so many capabilities at my fingertips was exciting, But looking for twelve months of swiping, Liking and going on a limitless stream of dates (None which, Amounted to almost anything serious), I told my best mate over brunch, Feel like I meeting a lot people I never meet otherwise a good reason. We may have had shared passions on paper, We didn like looking into same places or doing the same things on the weekend. We had some other friend groups and they didn exactly mesh. As one of my good friends dating a latina remarked after meeting one of my dates, Algonquin toy store, classical guitar and beer around a campfire and you South Beach, reggae and mojitos. When discussing finding someone with shared lifestyle and values, The trial is real, my guys.

All of that is changing, owing to Facebook. In reaction to the 287 million people online who currently indicate they are single, On November 8th they rolled out Facebook Dating to Canadian users.

Privacy concerns as facebook chooses Canada for Dating feature launchFROM POKING TO DATING: Facebook launches service to find relationships to give people full control over their experience, Facebook Dating is a dedicated feature within the facebook app. Once elected to get in, Singles can match with others based on their preferences and interests through a dedicated Dating profile, That completely separate from much of your profile. Your dating activity is not shared in your twitter profile, Your news feed or anyone else were really thinking about how inauthentic experiences are making online dating really difficult and preventing people from trusting online dating and forming a meaningful connection, considered that Charmaine Hung, Facebook Dating proficient program manager. Wanted to be sure you could build that trust with someone.

Canadians suffer from international dating fatigue, And are overwhelmed with choice when contemplating choosing a dating app. With Facebook being a familiar and dwelling social brand, It could spark new hope for singles who are frustrated in relation to their current digital dating options, tells Ray.

As one of those Canadians that often feels burnt out from online dating services, I like the notion that the Facebook Dating app is built into a platform I already use daily. It saves me from having to download yet again another app to my already crowded smartphone.

For those who are reentering the dating scene after being in a long term relationship, Who may not be especially tech savvy, Facebook already feels at ease and familiar. As Ray sounds, Growing number of singles over 50 are also taken with a safe and easy way to connect to other singles in their age demographic. Facebook could be an ideal place for singles in this target [group] to get in touch and meet singles they can trust. Mojitos conundrum for good. on top of that, as someone who lives in a smaller city where dating can feel a tad incestuous at times, I like that you have the option to include or hide friends of friends in your dating pool of suggested matches.
