Payment Timelines

The insurance provider in this state has 30 days to pay a life insurance policy to the person who holds it. Proof of death must be sent to the insurance provider, who must then provide the payment as soon as possible. State laws dictate various fees and interest that the provider will have to pay the insured if they fail to pay the total cost in 30 days or less.

Free Look Safety

In New York, policyholders for any type of insurance can try out an insurance policy for ten days before deciding to buy it. This period is set in place for life insurance, which allows buyers the chance to seek out other policies that may suit their needs.

Grace Period Guidelines

Like many states, New York sets up a grace period for life insurance payments. Typically, customers have 31 days to make a payment before coverage is canceled. A provider who tries to cancel a policy before this grace period due to late payments may be liable to prosecution and various lawsuits by the affected insurance holder.
