Case Studies

Anxiety and Life Insurance

It is highly possible that we will be able to obtain very favourable rates and terms for people with Anxiety looking for Life Insurance. If the Anxiety is well controlled with medication and there have been no issues with self-harm or any suicidal attempts in recent times, then underwriters will look favourably on your application. For anyone who suffers from more severe symptoms, including suicidal attempts of thoughts, psychiatric treatment / counselling or recent hospitalisation / time off work, then there may be a rating applied to your premiums.

In extreme cases where there have been several suicide attempts in recent years, it could be that you may be declined cover by the mainstream insurance providers. We work with a number of specialist insurance companies who offer cover for people who have been declined elsewhere, with exclusions for pre-existing conditions.

Critical Illness Cover for People with Anxiety

People who suffer from most mental health conditions, including anxiety, depression and stress will usually be able to get Critical Illness Cover, and often at standard rates.

As long as you have no major issues such as self-harm, suicidal attempts, psychiatric treatment, time off work or strong medication, there should be no loadings or exclusions. In some more severe cases where there is a history of more serious symptoms (listed above) then there may be an increase in premiums for Critical Illness for Anxiety of potentially special terms applied (exclusions).

Income Protection with Anxiety

Income Protection underwriting for people who suffer from Anxiety works in very much the same way as Critical Illness Cover for Anxiety. If there are no major issues such as significant time off work, hospitalisation, psychiatric treatment / counselling, strong medication or suicidal attempts / self-harm, then Income Protection is highly possible for Anxiety and without exclusions of loadings.

Insurance companies underwriting criteria tends to vary significantly when it comes to Mental Health and Income Protection, so it is important that we approach the best one for you. If your condition is more serious and symptoms are more severe, then it may be that your premiums may increase and some exclusions may apply.
