    Default Making a Misrepresentation on an Insurance Application

    A person in Florida applied for a life insurance policy seven years ago, and obtained coverage. He just realized that he may have made what could be construed as a material misrepresentation on the application for the policy, on the health statement. Can he potentially be charged with a crime for the misstatement?

    Default Re: Making a Misrepresentation on an Insurance Application

    If it has been more than six years since the application was submitted, then it appears that the statute of limitations will have run on any possible criminal charge.

    Keep in mind, however, that if the policy is still in effect, the misrepresentation may again come up if the insured person passes away and a claim is made on the policy, as a basis to deny the payout or to rescind the coverage.
