Life insurance policies have a definite and stated period (often two years) during which the insurance company has an opportunity to discover any mistaken or false statements on the application that might lead to denial of coverage.
After that period has passed, the insurance company would usually honor the policy as written even if something subsequently found would have led the insurer to not issue the policy.
