Munich Re Announces Updates to Life, Critical Illness and Disability Insurance Underwriting Manuals

Toronto, February 2, 2012 – Munich Reinsurance Company today announced important updates to its EDGE Life, Critical Illness and Disability insurance underwriting manuals. These updates introduce changes to the Life, Critical Illness and Disability insurance build tables and the Life diabetes sections, and reinforce Munich Re’s commitment to incorporate the most up-to-date data and information in its underwriting manuals.

Munich Re’s latest research has lead to some substantive changes to their build tables and calculators and the diabetes sections. Here is a sample of some of the changes:

  • The Life, CI and DI build tables yield more competitive assessments for BMIs of 35 to 40 and the maximum ratings have been extended allowing more offers.
  • The Life diabetes sections have been updated and expanded to provide better mortality management supported by the latest research.
  • Extensive reference material on diabetes has been added to the Life manual to provide the user with in-depth details on the course of disease, complications and related impairments.

The changes are available immediately to Munich Re customers with access to the EDGE manuals.
