Can an insurance company cancel the life insurance i have

Customer Question

Can an insurance company cancel the life insurance i have been paying on for 11 years.
The insurance was for paying my mortgage if I should die. The policy was through my mortgage holder who picked the insurance company. I have contacted the ins. co. And they indicated that it was not supporting this any more , a company decision was made to do this. The mortgage co. informs me that other people who had this type of insurance were also affected.

No this is not allowed. You can sue the insurance compnay for breach of contract or wrongful repudiation of the policy. You should be able to recover all premiums paid plus accrued interest as damages. Alternatively, you can also try to force them to comply fully with the policy terms.
