Application Process

The application process on the Haven Life website is meant to be entirely online with the exception of the medical exam, if one is required. Applicants receive an instant coverage decision to either approve their coverage immediately or ask for a medical exam in order to complete the application process. 

With Haven Life’s Instant Term process, for applicants up to age 59, some will qualify to finalize coverage without a medical exam. Most applicants, however, will need to take a medical exam. 

Issuing the policy or paying its benefits depends on the applicant’s insurability, based on their answers to the health questions in the application, and their truthfulness. 

Here’s what their quoting tool looks like:

Begin the application process by answering the basic questions, including your date of birth, gender, and the state you live in. This will give you an estimated rate based on your answers.

If you like what you see, you will click ‘Get your real rate’ to begin the online application process. You will start by creating an account, verify yourself via an SMS message sent to your cell phone, and begin the longer questionnaire. This will go into detail about your health and lifestyle, asking questions like, do you have a family history of certain diseases, or do you participate in high-risk sporting activities.

You’ll be required to answer some basic information that you should already know about yourself (date of birth, where you live, etc.). Other than that, you should have your driver’s license and social security numbers handy.
