Rescission Period, specifically applicable to newly issued life insurance, refers to a designated timeframe, as dictated by state law where relevant, during which the policy owner has the right to reverse a life insurance purchase transaction with the issuing life insurance carrier.

This period offers policyholders an opportunity to reconsider their decision and, if necessary, cancel the life insurance policy without incurring any penalties or charges. To determine the exact duration of the rescission period and any procedures required to rescind the contract, individuals are advised to consult their state department of insurance or review the details provided in their life insurance policy.

The rescission period serves as a consumer protection measure, ensuring that policyholders have sufficient time to review their policy terms, coverage, and suitability before committing to the life insurance plan. It allows for informed decision-making and provides peace of mind for individuals purchasing life insurance.
