The Uval Life Insurance Co, here has announced reduced premiums for non-smokers. Policy-holders regardless of age will pay premiums on the rates for persons two years younger, if they don’t smoke, the company said. The discount is based on actuarial data which shows that persons smoking 20 or more cigarettes daily have a life expectancy five years less than a non-smoker.
