Many people who apply for term life insurance through Fabric could be approved on the spot and able to begin coverage instantly. Our advanced algorithms help determine which applicants may qualify for this kind of approval.
Even if we can’t make you an offer right away, we’ll send your application to our human underwriters to see if they can approve you without a medical exam. If you do need a life insurance health exam after all, we make it easy by sending a qualified medical professional to your home or business for free, around your schedule (yes, nights and weekends too).
Here’s more on how the underwriting process works.
