Principal Financial has made temporary Individual Disability Income underwriting guideline changes in response to COVID-19.
Effective immediately, the Individual Disability Insurance (IDI) Underwriting Department at Principal® is changing underwriting guidelines for exams and labs. These changes will be effective through May 31, 2020, and will be revisited regularly as the pandemic news unfolds.
No physical measurements and labs are needed for up to the amounts listed below. For amounts beyond those listed below, Principal Underwriters will evaluate the medical records to determine if labs and physical measurements are needed. We highly recommend the use of Human API and encourage your client to connect their records through that process. Your underwriter can provide more information on Human API if you need it.
These new guidelines are available to Individual and Multi-Life cases.
