Earlier this year, activity figures appeared to be better for the youngest consumers.

Since May, the figures for the oldest consumers have looked better.

  • Application activity for consumers ages 60 and older was 4.8% higher in July than in July 2017.
  • Activity for consumers ages 45-59 increased 2.1%.
  • Activity for consumers ages 45 and younger fell 1.2%.

Life insurers formed MIB to give them a mechanism for sharing underwriting information. Insurers use the data from the Braintree, Massachusetts-based consortium to check the information in insurance applications.
