Banner: COVID-19 coronavirus response


As the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate news cycles, senior leaders at Legal & General America have been monitoring the developing situation. At this time, they are taking necessary business actions, including the following new guidance on underwriting submissions for applicants planning travel to or from certain regions. We will continue to update you as the situation evolves and stand ready to support your business. 

For applicants with planned future travel:

  • At present, Banner will postpone consideration of all submissions on applicants planning to travel to China and any country with a U.S. State Department level 3 or 4 advisory or Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Travel Health Notice until 30 days following their return.
  • Applications signed in states that have underwriting restrictions on planned future foreign travel will be considered on an individual basis.


For applicants who have recently completed travel:

  • Persons returning from China and any country with a U.S. State Department level 3 or 4 advisory or CDC Travel Health Notice, will be asked during the underwriting process about any illnesses—specifically about fever, cough, and shortness of breath and may be required to sign a Good Health Statement and wait 30 days following their return.
