What Is A Contestability Period In Life Insurance Policies?

Life Insurance - Question 17
The standard contestability period under Ontario law is 2 years. This means that once the policy is in force for a period of greater than 2 years, it can only be cancelled or voided in the event of a fraudulent misrepresentation. If the death occurs within the first 2 years, a simple error in answering the questions on the application for the life insurance can result in the claim being denied and the policy being rescinded. It is important to have the specific facts in every case reviewed by an experienced lawyer in life insurance claims to determine whether a claim denial has been properly made by the insurance company.
