New business and underwriting information
|May 10, 2019||New applications for Term policies with old rates must be received by John Hancock’s home office by May 10, 2019. Applications received after May 10, 2019, will be issued with the new rates.|
|June 7, 2019||To issue policies with old rates, all pending applications must complete the formal underwriting process and all administrative requirements must be received by John Hancock by June 7, 2019.|
Please contact your Case Manager should you already have a pending application in New Business and wish to have the new rates. Coinciding with the launch of the new rates, new applications received at our service office prior to May 10th that do not specify the version of rates applied for will be set up with new rates. On pending cases submitted during the transition period, please contact your Case Manager to make any changes to the product selected.
Recently issued policies can be considered for reissue, with the new rates, provided the “free look” period has not expired. Make sure to indicate that you want the policy reissued with the new rates. Subject to normal underwriting practices, policies may require additional evidence to ensure health status has not changed.
Term-to-Term replacements are not allowed within the first policy year. Any replacement of an inforce policy (after the first policy year) would require replacement forms, be subject to full underwriting, and possibly result in reduced compensation. Please note that the six-month product exchange feature is not available on our Term products.
