US InsurTech company eLife LLC has launched a life insurance offering called eTerm Express that is designed with an entirely paperless application and approval process.

The launch comes as eLife LLC says over 50m US households either do not have life insurance or do not have enough. It says this market segment consists of people typically needing from $100,000 to $500,000 of life insurance coverage.

Christopher Snyder, CEO at eLife LLC, said to date, the industry has been accessing these consumers using “antiquated products, outdated methods”, and manual underwriting processes with full medical exams.

Snyder said: "Our research shows this is why the middle market has been so difficult to penetrate."

eTerm Express is powered by a distribution platform incorporating electronic underwriting and straight-through-processing.
