Life Insurance!?
reported/copied by Jen with editor notes
Thanks to Charlie Dyck for bringing up this important topic!

As a skydiver, it can be difficult to be accepted for life insurance.  Fueled by their ignorance and fear of the sport, many insurance companies excluded benefits when the cause is skydiving, or worse, they reject the applicant altogether.  Or, they will only insure if you make less than 20 jumps a year!  WE know how much MORE dangerous an uncurrent jumper is, but who understands that?
USPA has some information, but it is hidden in their site. Here's how you can find out more:
