Do Smokers Pay More For Life Insurance?

YES, smokers pay more for life insurance. They can pay as much as 3-4 times more than a non-smoker.

One of the high-risk factors life insurance companies look at, is the use of tobacco products - either smoked or chewed.

Insurers usually do not draw a distinction if you smoke 2 cigarettes a day or 40, if you smoke at all, you are considered a smoker and your rates will be much higher.

Occasional Smokers

If you shop around, you may find some companies give a break to occasional cigar smokers. But these are rare.

So, if you are a smoker, be prepared to pay more than a non-smoker, sometimes as much as three times more. But the only way to find out for sure is to get your own quote.
