The Tax Credit Office can usually only backdate your claim for a period of up to three months from the date they get your form.
It’s unlikely that you actually died last month and are faking being alive today so you can cash in on a death benefit. The reason has to do with your age and how it affects the price of your new policy. Your insurance company may use something called your “insurance age” or “insurance birthday” when processing your application.
With life insurance, as your age goes up so does your premium. (Not every insurer does this.) The insurer will look at the midway point between your birthdays and round your age up or down depending on which birthday is closer.
If this happens, don’t panic—your broker didn’t just turn into a con artist.
When it comes to life insurance, insurers will let you backdate a new policy a few days or even months, if by doing so you can get a lower premium.
