The underwriting process for Cincinnati Life's non-med policy is slow compared to the competition. They will run the normal electronic database checks but often time request doctors records which delays the process significantly.
What they will check:
We have seen the quickest to be 3-4 weeks and it can be as long as 2 months depending on how quickly your doctor responds to the request for medical records. Among no exam companies, Cincinnati is one of the slowest for life insurance decisions.
Very low rates for under $100,000 in coverage.
Allows tobacco chewing without assigning smokers rates.
Phenomenal customer service.
Maximum death benefit of only $100,000.
Standard is the best health class available without taking an exam.
Lengthy decision timeline before approvals.
Only accept applicants up to age 60.
Extras and Options
Can be added with an additional cost:
You are permitted to convert to a permanent policy up until age 70. You do not need to prove insurability again as long as your premiums have been current and the policy has not lapsed. This option is included in the policy at no extra cost. Converting to permanent will, however, have new (higher) premiums.
Cincinnati Life has very low and competitive premiums when compared to other competing no medical policies under 100K in death benefit.

Finding the Best Company for No Medical Exam Insurance
Is Cincinnati Life the best option?
Or might there be another company better suited to your needs?
Recent advancements in technology have increased the number of companies offering life insurance without requiring the exam. It's also brought the price down to the point where many people won't pay that much more than they would by going through the full regular underwriting with an exam. This is great news!
Aside from comparing quotes, how do you know which company is actually the best for your unique needs and health history?
The best way to do this is to work with an independent agency that is:
- Unbiased and not married to any one life insurance company.
- Has access to all the top no exam products as well as some niche products for certain people/situations.
- Is a specialist in the no exam area.
You're in luck:)
