Life of the Southwest: EZ Underwriting Limits are Now $3 Million

National Life is pleased to announce that it has temporarily raised its EZ Underwriting limits to $3 million for all permanent life insurance products, effective immediately. We will carefully monitor the COVID-19 situation to determine if future changes and updates to our limits are warranted. This enhancement impacts our FlexLife, PeakLife, Living Life by Design and TotalSecure products.

In addition to the expansion of the EZ Underwriting program, we are changing our remote application policy to support remote applications for all life insurance policies, regardless of size. These enhancements should make it easier to do business in an environment when it is not possible to meet in-person.

As the challenges related to the COVID-19 outbreak increase, National Life wants you to know that we are continuously working with you to better support you and your clients, bringing peace of mind to everyone we serve.
