Also many people try to file claims on term life insurance policies that have already ended. Those claims will never be paid.
There is precedent for an insurance company to deny a claim even after the standard two year contestable period in the case of fraud. Part of the reason for the limitation on the contestable period is to protect the insured from having his claim denied for a relatively minor misstatement on the application. However the intent was never to reward fraudulent activity. An example of fraud would be a person who knows he is HIV positive but does not disclose it on the application, then he has a friend stand in his place for the exam and blood test. Even if the insured dies after the contestable period the company can deny the claim if they can prove fraud.
