The most common reason for life insurance to be canceled is non-payment. It can happen to anyone but letting your life insurance premium go unpaid is never a wise idea if you plan to keep the policy. Most companies will allow a 30-day grace period after the due date for you to make the payment. If there are extenuating circumstances you might be able to get an additional 30 days before your policy lapses. If you have a whole life policy you do have some other options. You may be able to use your dividends to pay your policy. Your policy may have a waiver of premium rider. If you have cash value that can also be used to offset your premiums.
If you are having financial difficulties by all means contact your agent and discuss your options. It may be you need to get a less expensive term policy to get you through the difficult times.
Insurance companies take a very dim view of any attempt to defraud them. Never lie on your application. If you have pre-existing conditions that you fail to include on your application, they will cancel your policy if it is discovered. Even worse is the fact they can refuse to pay a claim if the fraud is discovered.
