To reinstate a contract, the Insured must pay the outstanding premiums so that all payments are up-to-date. A contract can only be reinstated within 24 months of the date it lapsed.
If the contract lapsed less than 90 days ago, a Short Declaration of Health is required.
If the contract lapsed over 90 days ago, a regular Declaration of Health is required.
You must request the reconsideration in writing at the expiry date for the reconsideration indicated on the insurance contract.
In order for the request to be processed, the Insured must fill out the following sections of the insurance application:
- Section 17, Authorization to Collect and Communicate Personal Information to Third Parties
- Section 19, Declaration by Primary Insureds
For reasons of confidentiality, we are not authorized to disclose the reasons for a refusal directly to the Insured. To obtain that information, the Insured must send us the medical authorization form, on which he or she has identified the physician to whom we can send the reasons for refusal.
