When should I cancel my life insurance?

Life insurance is typically purchased as a way to protect your family after you pass away. Therefore, if you feel that your family no longer needs that support, you may wish to cancel your life insurance.

Your life insurance may also be a part of a larger investment portfolio. In some cases, you may feel that a different investment will give better returns and be more worthwhile.

You may also want to switch your life insurance policy to another company if you can find better rates elsewhere.

Term life insurance is easy to cancel, but if you have permanent life insurance, keep in mind that you could lose part or all of your policy’s cash value.

How do I write a life insurance cancellation letter?

There are a few specific things that need to be included in a life insurance cancellation letter:

  • Name and address of policyholder
  • Name and address of the insurance company, as well as a contact person if you know who it is
  • A subject line that includes the policy number
  • A request to cancel the policy and that all payments be stopped
  • A request for the refund of any prepaid premiums or policy’s cash value
  • A signature at the bottom of the letter
