Best Answer

Homeowners insurance companies will generally offer insurance effective immediately at the time of the quote if you have the down payment, your home does not require an inspection, and if it otherwise meets the underwriting guidelines of the company.

The policy is usually effective at 12:01 am the day the policy is bound. The insurance company will not backdate coverage to a prior date because doing so effectively makes it potentially liable for covered losses that may have occurred before the inception date of coverage, and for which it has not collected a premium.

If you cash in a life insurance policy do you have to pay taxes on it?

"Insurance and Taxes. No. All proceeds or withdrawals from any insurance policy are not taxable." This is not true. If you cancel a life insurance policy, the growth on the cash value IS TAXABLE. If you do not surrender your policy, the money is taken as a loan and therefore not taxable, but interest that has to be paid back to the insurance company grows.
