U.S. life insurers received 0.8% fewer requests for individual coverage in April than they received in April 2008 – but about 13% more for applicants ages 60 and older.

The MIB Group Inc., Braintree, Mass., is basing that figure on an analysis of North American life insurers’ use of MIB databases to check individually underwritten life applications.

MIB U.S. activity volume has fallen in most months since early 2006.
