Prudential: Revised Build Guidelines Coming Soon!

02-18-2022

Effective March 1, 2022, the maximum Body Mass Index (BMI) values for substandard classes and the Smoker/Nonsmoker categories for all ages and the Nonsmoker Plus category for ages 60 and up will be reduced. There will be no changes to Preferred Best, Preferred Nontobacco, or Preferred Smoker values, nor to Nonsmoker Plus values for ages 18 – 59.

The new maximum BMI values will be:

  Preferred Best

Preferred Nontobacco/

Preferred Smoker

Nonsmoker Plus Nonsmoker Table A Table B Table C Table D Table E Decline
Ages 18-59 29 31 33 37 39 41 43 45 48 >48
Ages 60 & up 31 35 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 >50

While the new values are lower, Prudential's build guidelines continue to remain one of their competitive strengths.
