Question After purchasing a life insurance policy, is there a period of time during which I can change my mind and have my money refunded?

Answer Yes, the Insurance Law requires a period of not less than ten days nor more than 30 days from the date the policy is delivered to you. A policy sold by mail order must provide for a 30 day period. The insurer must refund to you any premium paid, including any policy fees or charges.
