SBLI will look at several sources of information available electronically including:

- Fair Credit Reporting Agency
- Prescription Database
- Medical Information Bureau
The MIB (Medical Information Bureau) is a database shared among insurance companies. Here they can see information about your health from past applications as well as previous approvals and denials.
Bottom line: If you were denied previously for life insurance or have a health condition listed, it will be discovered even though you aren't taking a paramedical exam.
On the application, expect the normal questions pertaining to your medical history and lifestyle:
- Height and weight
- Smoking and tobacco history
- Drug and alcohol use/history
- Income level
- Dangerous hobbies
SBLI is efficient and has most decisions within 5-10 days. If medical records are requested, it could be several weeks. Some of this depends on your doctor's office who is sending the records.
Low premiums. Under $500,000 it's the same as their regular term insurance.
All health classes available. One of the only no exam companies that offers this.
$500,000 maximum death benefit is among the highest in the industry for no exam coverage.
Maximum issue age of 60 years old is on the low side.
Extras and Options
SBLI includes the Accelerated Death Benefits Rider in this policy at no extra charge. This provides the option to access a portion of the benefits while still living if the insured is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
For a little extra money, SBLI gives you the option to add a couple riders to customize your policy:
- Children's Level Term Rider
- Waiver of Premium
SBLI allows for conversion to one of their permanent policies up to age 70 or at the end of the level term period, whichever comes first. You do not need to proof your health at time of conversion. As long as your policy is active and paid up, you may exercise this right.
SBLI's no exam coverage under $500,000 death benefit has some of the lowest pricing in the industry.

How to Find the Right No Exam Policy
SBLI is one of our top no exam life insurance companies for 2017.
But is it the best option for you?
It might be. There are no more than 20 companies offering insurance coverage with no exam. The increased competition is a GREAT thing for the life insurance shopping consumer.
The problem is, the right company for your best friend may not be the right one for you. Please consider price, conversion options, available riders, underwriting, company financial strength, and approval process.
The best way to do this is to work with an independent agency that is:
- Unbiased and not obligated to any particular 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:) We do all the above and more. If you'd like to have a no pressure talk about options, please contact us or fill out the quote request form on this site.
