Insurance Question from Auburn, CA

Asked on 10/10/2011

We have been paying on a 30 year term life insurance premium on my ex-husband. If he moves out of the country, is the policy still valid? NULL

Answer given on October 12, 2011

A life insurance application will ask you if you plan to travel aboard or to another company in the next 6 mos or year.  If it is still within the frist 6 month or a year of taking the policy out and he answered “no” to the question of living or traveling aboard, you may have a problem. You did not say how long you have had this policy.  If the policy has been enforce for some time (say 2 year or longer) then moving to another country should not void the life policy.  To make sure, you can call the customer service area of your insurance company and ask.
