Hobbies Your Life Insurer Won't Approve Of

Obtaining life insurance may become important to you at some point – if it isn't already. However, many people may not realize that their hobbies could impact their ability to obtain affordable coverage. Many insurance companies place exclusions on activities that are considered dangerous because these activities are considered to greatly increase the chance of an accident or injury, thus making individuals who participate in these activities a greater life insurance risk. If you're an adrenaline-junkie who participates in one of these activities, beware.
