As the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate news cycles, senior leaders at Legal & General America have been monitoring the developing situation. At this time, we are taking necessary business actions, including the following new guidance on underwriting submissions for applicants planning travel to or from certain regions. We will continue to update you as the situation evolves and stand ready to support your business. Here is our current guidance:
For applicants with planned future travel:
- At present, we will postpone consideration of all submissions on applicants planning to travel to China and any country with a U.S. State Department level 3 or 4 advisory or Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Travel Health Notice until 30 days following their return.
- Applications signed in states that have underwriting restrictions on planned future foreign travel will be considered on an individual basis.
