COVID-19 Premium Grace Period

As a result of COVID-19, our underwriter New York Life (NYL) understands that making a premium payment during these very challenging times may not be possible for some of our certificate/policy owners in the days and weeks ahead and has decided that no insurance policy should be canceled during the next 90 days due to non-payment of premium.

For those insureds who are unable to make premium payments during the next 90 days, all missed payments will be due once the 90-day period ends.
