Sample Life Insurance Weight Calculator

This article has a sample weight calculator for life insurance to give you an idea of which rate class you might fall in.

When you apply for life insurance, the majority of life insurance companies will ask you for your height and weight, among other things. The reason they do this is because statistics show that being overweight is also associated with or eventually leads to other health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, sleep apnea, stroke, and more.

Your height and weight is used to determine your Body Mass Index, or BMI. All life insurance companies have their own underwriting standards, but here is a sample of how an insurance company might rate you- Preferred or Standard. Keep in mind that many other variables are involved in determining your rate class besides height and weight.
