State Approvals and Illustration System
The new Term product is approved in all states except Delaware and New York and has been updated on JH Illustrator. The new rates will also be reflected on jhillustrator.com.
- The current John Hancock Term (’15) product will no longer be offered in states that have approved the new Term (’16) product. However, in order to provide a transition period in approved states, John Hancock Term (’15) applications will be accepted through April 8, 2016.
- All John Hancock Term (’15) pending applications must complete the formal underwriting process and all administrative requirements to issue the policy must be received by John Hancock by May 6, 2016.
Reissues of John Hancock Term (’15) policies to Term (’16) will be considered only on John Hancock Term (’15) policies that are within the Free Look period. 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 not that the six month product exchange feature is not available on Term products.
