Weight Chart

Currently, 64% of adult Americans are categorized as obese. Medical conditions associated with obesity include diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and coronary heart disease. Each year, obesity causes over 300,000 deaths in the U.S. alone.

Not surprisingly, obesity is a major determinant in your life insurance underwriting category.

Underwriting Example
The weight chart at the right lists part of the height and weight criteria for one life insurance company. This does vary among companies, so make sure you don't miss the cutoff by just a pound or two. Another company may not bump you to a higher rate category.
