Guaranteed issue whole life insurance policies are a type of life insurance that offers coverage to individuals without requiring a medical exam or health questions. However, these policies typically come with a waiting period before the full death benefit is available, usually 2-3 years. If the policyholder were to pass away during the waiting period, the beneficiary would receive a refund of the paid premiums with interest.
