Can I change the life insurance coverage or the insured capital at any time? Is there a limit on the modification of the coverages? Can the insured capital be increased or can I only reduce it?
When taking out life insurance, the policyholder decides how much he wants to insure (insured capital) and what coverage he wants to include based on what he deems necessary.
The policyholder can request the increase or reduction of the insured capital, as well as the modification of the coverage at any time, with a view to the annual renewal of the policy. The insurer, for its part, usually asks the policyholder to fill out a new insurance application, which implies a new declaration of the state of health and, where appropriate, the performance of medical tests, especially if they want to increase the coverage or you want to increase the insured capital.
In any case, and taking into account the conclusions obtained from the new health survey and medical tests, even if the company denied the increase in the insured sum, it could not modify the life insurance contract in force for the insured amounts or coverage offered at the time the contract was formalized. For the reduction of the coverages or the insured capital there does not have to be a problem.
